Clay: Nadal vs. Agassi?

I know (and agree to a certain extent) that its stupid to compare players that are not playing at the same time.

Anyway, I think it would have been an interesting matchup to see Nadal take on agassis style where he hits it early, hard and flat. we know that Nadal has problems with that style on other surfaces and that Andre have killed a couple of claycourt specialists during his prime.

What do you all reckon?

Re: Clay: Nadal vs. Agassi?

Nadal wouldn't lose a set against Agassi on clay.

Agassi's RG win was probably the flukiest RG win ever. What a choke by Andrei!

Re: Clay: Nadal vs. Agassi?

Are you serious?? Nadal would wipe the court with Agassi at least on clay.

Nadal 10 times out of 10.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Rafa would win even playing with his right arm

Re: Clay: Nadal vs. Agassi?

Agassi of the 1990 under gilbert...would be quite a match vs. Nadal. Agassi is just the type of hitter Nadal doesn't like to play.

:retard:


And Andre of 1999, that fit and that fast could clearly give Nadal a great match, but Nadal would win, proably 8/10.

Look at his draws. See who he had to play in the semi final of 1999...

Re: Clay: Nadal vs. Agassi?

What jerk you are.
Just look at their head-to-head. Nadal even kicked ass on grass with Agassi not having a single break point. How do you think he would manage to beat Nadal on clay? He even got beaten easily in 2005 on hard and declared after the match that he didn´t stand a chance against Nadal. Why don´t you think a bit before you open a thread and saying Agassi was so much better in his prime than in 2005 is bullshit also.
Nadal is the one who has improved since 2005.

Re: Clay: Nadal vs. Agassi?

Andre may have been the most under-achieving clay court talent ever.

Rafa in four sets.
