In the early part of his career, he was considered a prima donna.
But he developed into a real champion. One of the few players to win a career grand slam - Sampras never did it; Federer hasn't done it. 60 singles titles. Also he won the Olympic gold in 1996.
He developed into one of the most respected players in the game, beloved by fans and his peers alike. He is considered to be one of the charitable players in all of sports.
He leaves as an elder statesmen of his sport, and one of the all time greats.
