    Too bad the guy died and couldn't see his vision come true.

    Just watched the latest ATP Uncovered show: they interviewed Rafter and after talking about his career talked about Tomic (since PR is DC coach for AU) and he said "top 10 for sure; after that, who knows?" Pretty much same with Fed. Knew he'd be very good; but only a select few have the drive to stay on top for a long time.
