I agree, more talented than Johansson but at least Johansson's ability matched his highest ranking. I watched Norman during the Sydney Olympics but wasn't really impressed from what I remember. I watched the Corretja match against Moya and he looked as hapless as Murray does now.
Norman was a clay courter. Hard courts weren't his forte.

Corretja lost that one yes but he gave Guga a great battle in 2001.

Enqvist is one of the more frustrating talents of the late 90s/early 00s. Didn't fulfil it despite conditions far more favourable to him than those with similar games today. 1999 was his big chance against Kafelnikov and he didn't come through.

I agree Bjorkman was weaker. Didn't win a singles TMS I don't think. Two slam semis the highlight of his singles career at least.
