What will he look like in 20 years after he's retired and not playing tennis anymore?

JW's a guy whom I really believe more and more to be playing a game not suited to his temperament and talents. (just imagine if Becker were a 2hb baseliner or if Edberg had stayed in the Borg clone mold instead of breaking it and doing it his way.) 80's and 90's; JW could have been a devastatingly aggressive one handed bh serve volleyer with incredible improvisation skills in front of the net. This era and conditions, his game gives him consistent results but also limits him to his current position in the pecking order in this peer group. I think reasonably at most another slam final from him.
