What adapting to the surface when all courts are the same slow ,slower. That is why when they needed to play on blue clay they disappeared because you need skills there.

I see what you're getting at, as far as contrasting styles but Agassi/Sampras were the same generations and truly opposites. Djokovic is not really Federer's opposite nor is he the same generation

as far as comparing the players Fed/Samp Djok/Agassi there just aren't really that many similarities besides the first set had great serves/good on grass and the second set were good returners

the comparison doesn't work. also Federer is not boring like Sampras was
I don't think this comparison has any grounds to be honest

Djokovic and Agassi are not similar, Djokovic is agressive off the return like Andre was but Agassi was not a player who did the whole defensive, run around all the time thing. Agassi was an offensive player. he attacked often, Novak does not

there are some obvious connections but there are many differences. Djokovic will never be to Federer what Agassi was to Sampras because Novak does not share the same generation as Federer. and the players just are not that similar despite what some of you are claiming. the biggest significances are that Samp/Fed both are/were good on grass and that Agassi/Novak both are great returners. beyond that there are stark contrasting styles and careers
These are very sensible posts and factual.

Agassi was the cleanest ball-striker in the open era.

You seem very confident with this assertion.

Prove it.

That's true as that's the only way to get results, especially Slams these days, and Slams number are the only thing keeping Fedtards breathing

Everyone has an opinion OK . Can you ask Djokovic how he can recover for 24 hours or less after playing 5 hours match and went to play another one for six hours,I do not say he is from Mars.
