Re: Who is the most wasted talent in last decade?

Federer
Nadal
Djokovic
Murray

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: Who is the most wasted talent in last decade?

I agree with you, probably Nalbandian.

Gasquet is sadly heading that way, and Baghdatis too, although he is not as talented as the other 2.

Re: Who is the most wasted talent in last decade?

Nalby is the greatest technical talent,

but the physical is a very natural part of a person, and then of the "talent" :

if you consider that, Safin is the greatest talent of the three imo
... and also the most wasted.

useless old guy

Mark Phillipousis, the way he dismantled Sampras at his peak during the 1996 AO was amazing.

Ancic. Not his fault he has been screwed by injury, but his undoubted talent has gone to waste.
