Hey, don't you know its all the above..

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".
Fixed

He's definitely got a shot at it, he's been the most consistent player on tour since 2011. Still a long, long way to go though...I agree.

Agassi hardly declined he played very smart tennis.

you won't see Nadal, Novak, Andy playing as well as Federer does at 31, if they're still playing. granted none of them were nearly as good in their primes (right now) as Federer was in his. except maybe Nadal on clay and Djokovic in 2011

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Agassi was still much worse than when he was 25

Agassi didn't decline?? Watch his matches from RG 91', AO 95' and USO 95' and compare it to his later years. He was competitive untill he retired, but he clearly declined.

Agassi at 34 had less mileage than Fed at 31.

I've watched 'em. It would help your argument if you could at least pinpoint one or two things from the matches you cite...

Edit: Incidentally, why has this thread turned into a comparison between Federer and Agassi in their later years? I've lost track of how this pertains to the thread topic.

Unless you are a robot, or has the egg, pretty sure mileage is relevant.

More power, better stamina, better reflexes. Basically everything anyone can do better when they're 25 than when they're 35 he did too.

Look at his returns for example, (In the 90's) he could hit winners from +200 km/h serves in surfaces that were a lot faster than the ones he played in the mid 2000's. In the AO 2005 he was aced like 60 times in a match (against Joachim Johansson). In Wimbledon 92' he made Ivanisevic's and Becker's serves look average at times.

You are comparing yourself to Agassi/Federer?



I know that djokertards are adverse to facts and logic, but this one takes the cake.
