Cool Most Over-Rated player of 2012 is....?

Who shall we nominate and award this most coveted prize to?

Sadly Kvitova was quite over-rated this year. #Failuretolaunch

Radwanska is certainly a strong contender here as well.

Poll to come when we have enough consistent noms. I don't wanna poor over the rankings and revisit everyones past year like Na-Goat or someone would cause I just don't have the effort.

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

So it clearly wasn't that terrible if there ranking is there boo. I'm so ready for Radwanska to drop like a fly a-la Wozniacki in 2013.

Overranked =/= overrated.

Anyway, Barthel. I would've said Lisicki but she's so irrelevant atm her hype has died.

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

Radwanska, but not Agnieszka.

Its sad that there really are people who see that scrub in top20. Hope 2012 is the last season when we see her being somehow relevant, and she'll be back to itfs...

I'm alaways right, even when Im wrong...

Radwanska's results at Slams is even inferiour to Errani's + 1R at Olympics

and her only run to the final was a real fluke with increadible luck in the match versus Kirilenko

Your excuses are cute. Radwanska is 6-1 against Errani and played great tennis against Kerber to reach the final. Just because you don't like someone doesn't mean they're overrated. Look at the like/dislike thread

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

In my opinion, the player with a spectacular game are overrated (e.g. Ivanovic, Lisicki).

And player who has a defensive tactical play will be underrated (e.g. Radwanska, Kerber, Errani).

But the rankings do not lie.
