But Agassi did not have so many matches like Federer has at this age and Agassi did not have 17 GS so who is more hungry,

So you two clowns know exactly how much someone was "hungry", can you tell me also the numbers for the next lottery?

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

TBH, I think that record is going to stand a very long time. Roger was never really injury-prone but the rest of the guys on the tour are.

the fact Agassi was less hungry as you say means he had less motivation and still took prime Fed to 5 sets.........fuck some people here stupid beyond belief

Re: Will Novak make a run for Feds 23 consecutive slam semi record? (11 and counting!

No. He has had quite a few close calls during his streak, namely against Wawrinka in Australia and Tsonga in Paris last year, at some point he will end up losing one of those sort of matches.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers

Agassi's longevity is astonishing, I think him being competitive against Federer past-prime is evidence of that a prime version of Roger does not simply blast all past ATG's as some here would suggest.

Novak's chances of equalling this record are similar to Fernando Gonzalez's chances in the 2007 A.O. final, according to Andy Roddick's assessment.

Re: Will Novak make a run for Feds 23 consecutive slam semi record? (11 and counting!

Agassi was hungry as much as Fed at that time when they played ,If you compare Fed who played against Murray in SF at AO 13 to Agassi who played vs young Fed then. That is the question . This Fed now has 17 GS and a lot of records but that Agassi had 7 or 8 GS with no records on his name as Fed now. So if Agassi could defeat Fed back then he could be hero but if Fed could take a win against Murray in SF It is just nothing for him another final, Like Wimbledon 2012 almost
everyone felt sorry for Murray and Fed just got his 17 GS, It is just business for Federer,He just broke Murray's heart and his mother and girlfriend as well. All of them cried in public as if someone was dead,So Fed was as a monster in many people 's eyes not as a "hero".

Don't you love the arguments in MTF?

We have posts claiming Djokovic won 6 slams because it's a weak era, not much competition. Federer won his slams in a stronger era. Then turned around saying Djokovic won't make this SF streak as competition is tough, blah, blah, blah.
