Flashy or potential doesn't get you to finals of the French Open, US Open, and a champion at Wimbledon.

Flashy doesn't allow you to tear Muster and Rosset apart on clay, to outplay a peak Edberg or Becker, or to have a winning head to head record over Pete Sampras.

Your anecdote is pointless, because every player in the history of the game has had days where they are in poor form.
