Re: Most Over-rated/Over-hyped players on this forum

Golovin just wasn't that good, she played plenty between the injuries, never broke through at a slam (sf or better) never won a tier 1, never made top 10

She didn't even make it past her teenaged years and still came close to doing all of those (as I already stated).

And a QF at 18 is definitely breaking through at a slam...

Anyway, to answer the thread, definitely Goerges at this stage.

Ivanovic and Vaidisova had already done the same, at a younger age. She wasn't exceptional in that case either.

I never said she was exceptional (I've already stated my at-best expectations for her). And you just cited a slam-winner and former #1 and a highly-promising player that also retired extremely early.

They were of her peer group. I think the comparisons are justifiable.

My point.

Just meant you used those two established players to nullify someone who receieved similar results early on, despite perpetual injuries, and then left the tour. So who knows what could have happened?

Chakvetadze was also a tier 1 winner, slam qtr finalist and top 10 player as a teenager. Seriously Golovin was the runt of her group of players.

Shvedova. I like her and believe she has potential, but given her lapses and chokes, she doesn't deserve the attention she gets.

I don't recall having watched Golovins a single volley ever, not even on highlights reels, on the contrary I've seen Caro volley many times.

Re: Most Over-rated/Over-hyped players on this forum

IMO. Robson gets too much hype on here and by our media. She gets touted as a future grand slam winner, and although i see her becoming a good player, i don't think she'll win a slam. She'll reach top 10 max imo. And i don't see her breaking top 20 or top 10 (like many have suggested) this year either.

Re: Most Over-rated/Over-hyped players on this forum

Goerges by far. 0 slam QFs, like 1 good result in a Tier I, never even been YE top 20.

Useless.

Mandy Minella, Heidi El Tabakh, Marta Domachowska, and other challenger-level journeywomen that have a bigger following here than many top 30 players.
