Unfulfilled talents

My first choice would be Hicham Arazi, amazingly talented, plays about two or three good matches a year, and every time he does blows the guy off the court.

Any other ppl who really wasted all that talent and never really achieved a lot?

Re: Unfulfilled talents

Haasfan is a waste of talent.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I think Haasfan is obsessed with this topic.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Has Haasfan fulfilled their talent, that's the big question.

Re: Unfulfilled talents

hey guys, guys. I mean yeh, id admit this is a topic im very interested in, because it makes a break from a lot of the sleazy threads that basically all are about which player is the most attractive.

Besides, i never got a real answer other times I asked about this topic. Either way I think its got more to do with tennis than what player I think got the biggest slonge or who I would like to go to bed with.

Re: Unfulfilled talents

I think for me, Marcello Rios definitely takes the cake. After he played such unbelievable tennis to become #1 (for a short time), he just seemed to fade away from the game. I thought at the time that he was going to be a very serious contender for the non-grass slams.

Re: Unfulfilled talents

What do you mean you never got a real answer? You've gotten two answers in this thread, and a vast majority elsewhere. Are you really just out for er'body to tell you it's Tommy?

How old is Marcelo now? Is he still playing?

Re: Unfulfilled talents

I didn't think I would agree with you Carnival, but you are right in this case.

I read all those old threads and it seems this question is from the ask the same question enough, you might get the answer you like school.

According to ATPtennis.com he'll be 29 in December, and he has only played a couple of challenger events this year losing early in both of them. The last time he played in a slam was in RG in 2003 when he retired (surprise, surprise) against Ancic in the 1st round.

Re: Unfulfilled talents

Federer, he could have won 5 slams by now with his talent!

Seriously, Marcelo and Hicham.

SINCE THERE'S NO TENNIS ACTION I WENT FOR TONGUE ACTION

Re: Unfulfilled talents

Marat Safin also qualifies in my book- if he could just get his head straight and play the way he did against Roddick and Agassi at the AO, he could be a serious threat to Federer's dominance.
