So much talent on the tour at the moment, and yet just about everyone is a headcase, choker, idiot, out of shape, etc. It is very tough to balance out the talent with the mental problems, before the talent is gone, either to age or injury. And it also sucks when one player has the grit and determination and yet, for some reason, loses it at one point, and never gets it back. Like roddick and then he lost it to Fed, or Hewitt, who had it, lost it, and is now currently trying to get it back. Ive heard stories about how Agassi in his 20's used to drive around for Taco Bell's at night so he could eat. Now, obviously, Taco Bell isnt going to give you a 6-pack, but he won back then because of immense talent. Then, as he got older, he dedicated himself to nutrition and look at what he's been able to do. Imagine if he had done that before instead of Taco Bell
The point of it all is that at the moment, the tour is full of talent, and unfilled potential. Safin and Gasquet's ranking should not be that low, for example. If one wants to be a great tennis player, or pro in anything for that matter, one must have the talent, but also the will to win and the other intangibles. You can have all the talent in the world, but without fitness or a mental strength, you wont fulfill your potential.
