Agassi leave a legacy through three different generations, and won the 4 slams. So Andre has the advantage.

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:

Seriously though, how long till Madrid?

Agassi for me, but I don't claim to be objective in this case.

Re: Are you ready folks? Lendl vs. Agassi, who's greater?!?

Agassi almost always played second fiddle to someone else, be it Sampras, Kuerten or Hewitt.
He only managed to finish one year at the top, and won the YEC once, before he even won his first Slam.

Lendl was clearly the most dominant player of the 80's, finished 4 years at the top and won numerous YEC's, where you're measured against the top.

Agassi with the career slam has an edge I would say.

In charisma terms, Lendl of course

Re: Are you ready folks? Lendl vs. Agassi, who's greater?!?

agassi will be remembered as greater..but this was more due to his off-court soap operas and his relationship with the fans etc.

but lendl was a greater player...thats what the results say

Comfortably Lendl. He is in the top 5 open era players for sure.

Easily Lendl, 8 US opens in a row, YEC plenty of times, and the 8 slams he did lose were all to great players, borg,connors,mcenroe,wilander,becker.

Re: Are you ready folks? Lendl vs. Agassi, who's greater?!?

Lendl was clearly more dominant than Agassi. Agassi was slightly more versatile than Lendl. In my opinion, Lendl is much closer to Agassi in the versatility department, than Agassi is to Lendl in the dominance department.
Therefore I would choose Lendl.

Hmmm... I wouldn't like to sound too pedantic but those were "merely" 8 USO finals in row, and he actually lost 11 Slam finals...

Achievements wise Lendl is superior to Connors, yes. Lendl would certainly be my pick for the next player after the usual Laver, Sampras, Borg, Federer group. Obviously with Laver it is difficult because his acheivements are not solely in the open era.
