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

In tennis, you often get players who are hyped to the moon by everyone, but you don't see what the big deal is. You often get players who are rated higher than you think they should be.

So which players are over-rated or over-hyped on this forum in your opinion?

Explainations to back up your arguments would be good

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Not necessarily.

1. Hingis - made out by her fans (mostly) to be some sort of superhuman force of nature. She was a very fine player, no doubt, but she took advantage of a transition period on the WTA tour and then didn't have the drive to compete with the bigger, stronger, opponents who came later.

2. Dementieva (who I like)

3. Jankovic (who I adore)


If anyone says Peak Pierce I will cut them

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

Goerges and Lisicki to me.

And Sharapova to a certain extent : She's nowhere near as good as Serena and nowhere near as beautiful as Kournikova.
So I would say she's kind of overhyped by the medias.

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

To be honest, nobody, everyone criticizes extremely talented players like Barthel or Lisicki Well maybe Heather Watson, I love her attitude and that but her game is very limited

How is Heather overhyped? Basically nobody even cares about her compared to Robson...

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

Williamses (both).
Reading their fanboys's drivels about their unstoppable "peaks" makes me puke in a mouth a little.

Not really. I dislike Murray, but i wouldn't say he's over-rated overall. He is by some but not in general.

I also really like Del Potro, but sometimes people can go overboard in hyping him.

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

Pls don't get me wrong, but I'll go with Vika Azarenka. Yes she did great job last season, won GS title and is #1. However, her real potential of being among the greatest is yet to be showed in 2013 when she will have to defend all those points and titles. I believe in her, but don't get all the hype about her being unstopable with Serena who proved her greatness like 10 times in the past.
