I read an old article the other day that suggested he could have done better if he didn't have such a taste for "partying". I'm suspicious of that kind of reporting (seems like too easy an explanation), but he does have, erm, a reputation, so to speak. In his defense, he did have many injuries and a bad case of hepatitis a few years back, so...
Not that I care, really, he's my favourite active player by a mile (I've even developed a taste for Challengers because of him
). I just hope he can carry his form from the last couple of months into next year.
And for a random tidbit: I'd pay big money for a picture of him and Guga when they won the Boys' Doubles at RG in 94. I doubt it exists, though.
ETA: Awesome longevity, anyway.
