Also please STOP talking about how he fared in the 90's. He turned pro in 1998 and you have to give him at least 2-3 years to find his feet. Not everyone is a Boris Becker.
Ummm. I remember watching that tennis match agaisnt sampras and I remember the commentators calling him "fed express" and specifically saying that people in the tennis world viewed him as a player with alot of potential who could win a slam someday.
