Default Is X the biggest waste of talent in this decade?

Here is a tale of two talented, young tennis players. Both have tremendous gifts...fast, classic strokes, can hit every shot. One player develops a strong mind and refines his strokes, on court strategy, and shot making and becomes a man named Roger Federer.

The second young player also develops... but in a negative way. As he ages he never seems to enjoy being on the court. His mind becomes more fragile, his strokes - while still nice, become more robotic as he ages... a reflection of his lack of love for the game. That second player is Xavier. So sad...

I heard from someone I don't know how true it is that the X-Man has had like 12 or so Coaches in his career I don't think he has "a lack of love for the game" I just think he doesn't have Roger's mental toughness, ability to focus, and not get upset. Last I heard the X-Man had a wrist problem and that certainly isn't going to help any tennis player
