Yes. Using Matchstat's ranking... which allocates 100 units for a player when they are a favourite and 50 for when they are the underdog... the Top 10 play out like this...

Stosur -725
Kvitova -626
Wozniacki -520
Aga -5
Serena 323
Na 325
Azarenka 397
Sharapova 562
Errani 580
Kerber 1185


Sam is the most overestimated player whilst Angie is the most underestimated.

Steve Tignor and Matt Cronin are actual tennis specialists - contrary to biased and ignorant celebrity worshippers, a species now more and more common in tennis fora.

A self-contradictory poll

This is going to be a quite weird poll, as it outcome will contradict itself. Suppose that a player XX "wins", i.e. she's been voted the "most overrated" WTA player this year. This will show that XX is rated low by this forum. If she happens to be high-ranked (and remember that the ranking reflects players's on-court results and not subjective opinions) - then she'll be proven to be strongly underrated, at least by this site.

Sharapova & Kerber

Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.

Sara Errani, No. 6... Come on. I have nothing against this girl, but I really don't understand how she reached No. 6 on WTA.

Re: Most Over-Rated player of 2012 is....?

Shvedova golden set, so what?

Torro-Flor impressive win streak no doubt, but Dellaqua had a similar one. You're both still irrelevant. Off of clay you were eaten alive by distinctly average players like Morita and Kostova.

Barthel, post hardcourt there was nothing impressive. I recall her being the real number two....

R.I.P Bally

Thankyou for years of service to British tennis

She won 4 tournaments. She also won more Grand Slam matches than any other on the tour other than Serena, Azarenka and Sharapova.

The fact that you don't understand how she reached number 6 in the rankings don't think she deserved that position rather supports the view that she is underrated.

I can't believe someone mentioned Lepchenko I think people need to realize that overrated and overranked are not the same, and in Varvara's case, they are exactly the opposite.

Nobody is ever overranked anyway because players don't get ranking points as the result of a public vote but have to earn them week in week out on the tour.

Re: Most Over-Rated player of 2012 is....?

Julia Görges… Everyone still talks about her as a future talent with major potential. I'm not saying it isn't true but she did ZERO to show that in 2012 (and really since winning Stuttgart).

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

Australian Open QF, French RU,Wimbledon 3R, Us Open SF and 4 titles probably have something to do with it.....
