If I would have to classify one group of fans as hurt, Fed fans would be fighting for last position in that list along with Murray fans.

Edit: You mention Agassi, pretty much every time people are talking about him and for example comparing him to Agassi, they talk about the career slam. I don't think I've ever in these debates hear anyone mention Golden career slam specifically, that tells you something on the value of it.

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.
