Safin and Nalbandian obviously were going to suffer many bad losses in their career because tennis came secondary (or less so) for the importance in their life. You aren't going to be great at the top level of a sport unless it consumes you and is the most important thing to you.. You just aren't. Everyone who achieved greatness at the highest level of their sport no matter how talented they were, eat sleep and breathed the game. Whatever it was.
Just imagine how much Nalbandian and Safin would have accomplished if tennis was the most important thing in their lives.
They should have took their fair share of slams away from other guys without a doubt..
Heck they half arssed 90 percent of their career and took down some of the biggest names in the history of tennis
