I never said that Riton ever won anything major BUT he had more talent in his little pinky than the rest of the top ten.......issue was he couldn't control it and again like any of the French has mush between the ears. Remember Tiriac was Very very vocal in the early 80s when he was coaching and after he dropped Riton that the guy was THE most talented player he had ever seen - Hana had similar talent and at times just looked like she couldn't decide what the hell she would do......it was like she had Too many shots to choose from and very often picked the wrong one. Thus with all that talent she ends up with ONLY 4 when she could have won twice that if not more.
