In tennis, we have seen various talented players lose the plot during their careers and end up underachieving. It is certainly not an easy phase to go through.

Even in modern-day men’s tennis, there are various star players that have immense talent but their performances have not been up to the mark. While there is Carlos Alcaraz, who realized his potential and had a blistering season in 2022, there are the likes of Denis Shapovalov and Alex de Minaur, who are still finding their feet on the ATP circuit.
