Do you know how ridiculous that sounds? Do you know what Agassi for example was like at a young age?

Like I said, injuries far less severe than his - he twice dropped out of the ATP rankings because he hadn't played for twelve months - have derailed promising careers. Missing a year of what should have been his prime and an unfortunate tendency to choke were the reasons for his underwhelming results, not poor work ethic.
Sorry I meant to write "around him" and I wrote "around here".
Yes I met him in 94 indeed.
And yes already by then you could see he was way too sure of himself.
Agassi was pro at age 16. He was cocky too, but back then, he was all effort too.
Haas didn't show that commitment IMO.

Agassi got out of pro tour many times too, but through his talent AND his work, he got back on top.
