Marin Cilic

More than a year ago, Cilic said that in the near future he plans to become the first racket of the world and win the Grand Slam tournament. But all these statements played a cruel joke with him. After all, almost immediately he was injured, and then completely went to surgery.

The Croatian returned to the tour many months ago, but did not come close to his optimal game. Marin continues to squeak the ball over the net, moves terribly on the court and even thebest weapon in the form of a feed constantly refuses in critical cases. Therefore, in this form, Cilic is just not able to compete in the ATP round.

Ramkumar Ramanathan

Once upon a time, Ramanathan was among the promising players. Just a few seasons have already passed, and he still spends all his playing time on Challengers and hardly holds on to the top 200. But if earlier Ramkumar stood out with a powerful serve, now this is not the case, since his level rivals easily take the first ball top 150.

The representative of India, as before, runs to the net in any situation, but for his whole career, he never learned how to handle low balls. In the draws, the tennis player plays over aggressively and tries to attack from any position.
