Re: Monfils loses yet again, this time to Benneteau, blows 3 mp's in the process!
Has he suffered from the downfalls of being over hyped. I think it plays a dangerous mental game with young players being put on a sort of pedestal before they've had time to truly develop. I think out of everyone nadal has handled it the best, but it is still a very dangerous route to take. While the flattery is nice when you get it and are winning, when their age starts catching up to their game and they drop a bit, the world comes crashing on them and they really don't know how to handle it.
