Why wouldn't he have been good enough.. He lost motivation.. He even said so.
Players DO lose motivation, especially when no one is even in their vicinity of greatness out of their contemporaries ya know
Not true, Sampras never ran away with the sport, in terms of total domination ever. He had no excuse to lose motivation except that he knew he was never good enough to win the French Open. Look at Roger even at 31 he's a top favorite to win it.
