I think for me the most talented of all times was (Marcelo) Rios. Marat Safin, 2004

Marcelo has an enormous talent. Gaudio, RG champion 2004

"Rios ... he has a beautiful game, great forehand and great touch," Federer, World number 1

Guillermo Coria: "Ríos and Vilas are my two idols"

And this comes as a surprise to anyone?

Rushed way ahead of his time (if it will ever come).

I love my girls.

Re: Donald Young loses in 1st Round of a Junior ITF ....

Even if Young wins 8 slams people will probably say he\'s underachieved. It\'s gonna be unbelievably hard for him to live up to his hype. I feel for him.

2 other juniors to look out for....Andy Murray from Scotland, plays with the heart of Nadal and will be good for the game, only player from Britain that will get anywhere near doing well when Henman retires. Plays a bit like Nalbandian. Also Sergiy Bubka, son of the legendary pole vaulter. Haven\'t seen a massive amount of him but he looks like a great prospect.

Ofcourse, he's only 15!

Donald was never ready to be thrusted into the pro
ranks. I blame his parents for this.

Despite wheather or not Donald wanted to go
pro, at 15 and with his build and talent he
simply wasn't and isn't yet ready to compete
in the pro's. His parents should have knew better
but I'm guessing the notariety and money were too
much for them to resist.

I hope Donald can improve, not because of this but under
the spotlight of scrutiny he's been put in. It'll be tougher
for him because more people than usual will be watching
his every move.

Re: Donald Young loses in 1st Round of a Junior ITF ....

Wow. I think some juniors rush to the pro circuit too quickly. Donald should hold back and develop his game.

QUACK IT LOUD....QUACK IT PROUD!!!!!!!!

GOOD LUCK TO: ANDY, HAAS, MARDY, BRYANS, JAMES, DJOKOVIC, MOODIE, ROBBY, MOYA, SAFIN, GICQUEL

DAVIS CUP CHAMPS FOR 2007!!!!!!!!!! WAY TO GO USA!!!!!!!

I remember a Murray interview on the BBC Sports Academy website last year when he said his game was alot like Coria's, not Nalbandian.

I hope they stop giving this kid wildcards at US tournies. He needs to work his way up the Junior rankings.

'I'd like to be in his shoes for one day,' says Mats Wilander, 'to know what it feels like to play that way.'

A. He's an American playing on a surface unnatural to him.

B. He's fifteen.

C. He was unfairly overhyped.

8 slams.
Even for Nadal, I don't hear this kind of expectation of winning 8 slams. But that's funny, I read this young boy saying that he wanted to win each slam twice. Isn't it strange to have this kind of ambition at this age?

8 slams was just a random number. I was just trying to make my point about how too much is/will be expected from him. There's absolutely no way he'll win each slam twice, its just not possible in this day and age.
