    Excellent work.

    *Extremely minor quibble, concerning "He joins players such as Vitas Gerulaitis, Jose Luis Clerc, David Ferrer and all of those that enjoyed tremendous success because of enormous amounts of hard work. Yes, Grand Slam champions they are not, but they retired (or will) with the sound knowledge that there are no "What ifs?" when it comes to effort." Technically, Gerulaitis was a Grand Slam champion. He won the 1977 Aussie, albeit at the time when the Aussie and French championships had considerably diminished fields.

    That is not a minor quibble, specially in view that I am the starter of the GREAT TENNIS JOURNALISM thread. I forgot that Vitas did win a Slam.
    Kirkus, can you edit that VITAS and either delete or replace with, lets say, James Blake?

    It now reads: "He joins players such as Jose Luis Clerc, David Ferrer, James Blake and all of those that enjoyed tremendous success because of enormous amounts of hard work."
