Two major talents but both lack the artistry of Rios. Are there a plethora of You Tube videos honoring their tennis talents as there are many made to salute Rios?

if so please share.

His sheer 'talent' didnt help him much to win before 21. :sport: So much talented.
Because he did not mature emotionally.
“He was a really bad loser,” said Madeleine Bärlocher, Federer’s first coach at the Old Boys Tennis Club in Basel. “After he’d lose a match, he’d sit under the umpire’s chair and cry for half an hour sometimes. The other players would already be in the clubhouse eating sandwiches, and he’d still be crying on the court.”
Bagels served by Fed to #1 ranked players:
Gustavo Kuerten (clay)
Andre Agassi (hard)
Lleyton Hewitt (hard (3), clay, grass)
Andy Roddick (indoor hard, hard)
Rafael Nadal (grass, indoor hard, clay)
Novak Djokovic (hard)
Andy Murray (indoor hard)

Fed has bageled every YE #1 since he turned pro (1998), with the exception of Pete.

Federer's wins since 35 prove it, physically he's old but sheer talent is still bringing titles.
His serve is indeed a product of sheer talent with his height. He's still managed to conquer No1e at Miami at that age though so he still has a ways to go.

I think it's Gulbis, Safin.. Rafa, Potro, Fed. It'd be stupid not to mention guys like Nole and Murray, but I bet they're better workers than the previous bunch bar Fedal and that made the main difference.

Santoro lasted 18 years in ATP with no weapon whatsoever except for TALENT.

I nominate Marcelo Rios. Honorable mention: Fabrice Santoro, Roger, Federer, Marat Safin, John McEnroe, Martina Hingis, Su Wei Hsieh.

Some convincing proof for Rios in this article and the video.

IMO Kyrgios is the most talented player of all time. He basically has every possible weapon needed to win majors consistently like the big 3 & dominate the sport. But sadly because of his dumb mentality & poor hip, he will never reach his full potential.
