I disagree. Blake has overcome a lot in his life, and was really highly rated for a while. He also has a degree from Harvard and has made TONS of money playing a sport that has never been very popular in his home country. I think he would be ever more successful if he had grown up in a more tennis friendly country, where he was the #1 player and had the added support and benefits of that position.
