Thumbs up Agassi the most unique player ever?

He's a baseliner yet everything he does is one of a kind. There is no player that reminds me of Agassi. Agassi was a tennis player in a sea of robots. His construction of points and ingenius variation may never be seen again. Though Tsonga has shown he likes to vary the pace of his shots which is encouraging

Re: Agassi the most unique player ever?

Ingenious variation? Come on now. He was a great tennis player without a doubt, but ingenious variation that is like saying Volandri is a grasscourt legend and meaning it.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Agassi the most unique player ever?

Varied the speed, spin, angle and depth a lot. Plus he took the ball early which took time away from his opponent. Never seen anything like it

Agassi played his game and tactically he was poor. It's just his level was good enough to win most of the game that he didn't need to use his tactical side.

It didn't work against Mecir, Kucera or Sampras did it.

If he was so unique, then he'd have been a great at the net, but this wasn't the case.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Without a doubt.

Federer is just a distant memory now and funny that Federer on his worst surface is much better than Agassi on his, but he isn't unique enough.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Re: Agassi the most unique player ever?

Karol Kucera was my favorite player when he was around. I remember first seeing him at The Hopman Cup.

Re: Agassi the most unique player ever?

Agassi had not too much Variation, angles ,spin , change of peace , volleys,etc except a little at the end of his carrer where he improved his touch and volleys a little and used drop a shot a little but still he was not great in those things, he just had an awesome ball striking, pretty clean,powerful,accurate and consistent plus a great return and was a hell of a competitor.

Re: Agassi the most unique player ever?

Agassi was boring as ****

I'll probably get bad repped for that but Fed is a much better player to watch win slams.

David Nalbandian /.\ Marcos Baghdatis /.\ Juan Martin Del Potro /.\ Alejandro Falla /.\ Bernard Tomic /.\ Gustavo Kuerton /.\
/.\Roger Federer /.\

At least this pansy took 6 games from Nalby whilst your hero took 3 games in Madrid.
Oct/Nov 2007: There was a time in history when the quality of a tennis player was determined by how many games he won off David Nalbandian.
