leconte could beat anyone when he was in the zone. he could hit incredible winners and then follow up with terrible errors. fun to watch though. too bad he choked in the FO final against Wilander - would have been good for him to win a major.

Yep, it is sad that personality is dead in the ATP.

Heh, face it it has all changed and will keep on changing. All sports. Take for example any other sport ( except cricket ;) ) and let me know which one stayed the same ? Way of life changed, people changed, music and art, world changed all in all everything. Its the way it goes, get used to it.

I think there's something to be said for Gallic flair. In addition to Leconte, I think Yannik Noah had it, Guy Forget had it, and I think you could include Richard Gasquet also. I don't think it's a coincidence that they all had one handed backhands.

Leconte is a legend. He was definitely one of those players that knew how to live also. Check out the picture of him on the Blackrock Masters website:
