Read these threads:

There’s three match up threads, the one for vanilla sf4 is still pretty relevant.:
http://shoryuken.com/f250/abel-strategies-match-ups-174963/ <- General
http://shoryuken.com/f250/breathless-super-abel-match-theory-thread-232185/ <- Super
http://shoryuken.com/f250/feels-different-old-abel-match-theory-thread-207656/ <- Vanilla

Some of the information in this thread is more opinion then fact but it’s a good enough starting point:

Abel isn’t cheap.
There is a reason he doesn’t win in anything more then small room tournys
He swings. If your stupid enough to get hit by a swing you deserve to be knocked into the air by an elbow then punched in the stomach for half your life.
He has abysmal footsies [where ryu’s cr mk is a 10 and ibuki’s arms and feet are a 0 then abel’s st.lk, f.mk and cr.mk are a 3] and it’s very difficult to create an opening without the other guy fucking up royally first.

Breathless isn’t broken unless they’re stupid. It’s only good for Gief, Fei Long, Balrog, Claw, Honda, Cammy and Akuma. Maybe Chun and Fuerte but whatever.
If you think that’s a long list of names; this is the char select screen: http://i.ytimg.com/vi/9-cNqyT_m-s/0.jpg

Good luck!
