You just dont get it. Rios is considered a huge waste of talent. Roddick is not. Roddick is not even viewed as a huge talent, but a guy with a huge serve, great work ethic, great determination, and lots of consistency over a long time. So nobody will talk about Roddick as an underachiever the way they do Rios. That isnt a slight on Roddick. Nobody wants to be known as a waste of talent. Fortunately for Roddick he isnt, Rios is shamed by people as a guy who threw away his talent (even considering the bad luck he had with injuries), not an honorable label.
