You.

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".

Re: What players are going to be slamless and forgotten???

Verdasco has the potential, but not the mental capabilities to win. Maybe he will be remembered for that amazing SF with Rafa at the Australian Open last year.

Nalby will be slamless but not forgotten.

Tsonga will get one. Davydenko and Murray will always choke but will be remembered by betfair and the Brit tabloids respectively.

There an only be One Nadal

Guillermo Coria.

The Argentine had(still has?) abilities to be a multi-slam winner. He should have won the Roland Garros 2004, and some other titles.
Unfortunately, the arm injury broke his career. 9 trophies is surely not enough for player with so great skill.
He will be remembered by current generation of player and fans, but I doubt that someone in 2020 will know who is this guy.

Nah, sadly Coria will always be remembered for his choke in the final. That was probably the single worst choke job in tennis history, people will always bring that up.

Re: What players are going to be slamless and forgotten???

All slamless players will be forgotten sooner or later. It takes something VERY special to change that. Leaving aside the last, say, 15 years, how many slamless players does the average tennis fan remember?

Example? As I said, not from the last 15 years for obvious reasons.
