Well I haven't read the full context of the statement, however, I will say that it's more than possible to excel in a field you detest. History is littered with examples of this. Further, we are never fully privy to the circumstance surrounding a persons life, and there is always the possibility of unknowns involved, and the very personal interpretation of the cost of success and the battles involved.

BTW, thanks for the update re your tennis, Always good to hear, and my apologies for missing that post earlier.
