Can't believe people think half the crap in Druggassi's book is true
Maybe if he was on meth while writing it he would have actually been somewhat truthful and even a bit helpful with uncovering some of the current drug problems in tennis today. Instead he says tennis is "relativey clean" despite knowing first hand about the coverup with regards to his own career (and we only know what he has chosen to tell us while he remains involved with the ATP and promoting the game).
Drugassi was not a very good player, let's be honest here people. In today's era of great athletes, do you really think a duck-walking, wig wearing clown who picked up slams in the weakest fields and spent half of his career avoiding his so called "rival" would compete? There are a lot of rose tinted glasses when it comes to Clownpras and Drugassi, but to claim that his career grand slam was superior to Roger's takes the cake
Agassi played in far more diverse conditions- he had to beat serve-bots and net rushers on low bouncing grass, had to compete with dirtballers on clay and a variety of guys on the hard courts. One thing you could say about Agassi's Wimbledon was he was lucky to grab it just before Sampras went on a roll, same way Roddick managed to snatch his only GS title just before Federer went on his rampage.
35 year old Agassi competed with Fed for three sets in the 2005 USO final but yeah he sucks, innit.
Federer benefitted from a weaker clay era to get to the finals every year- once Guga, Costa, Coria, Gaudio, Corretja, Moya and the rest disappeared the competition got weaker and only Nadal could stop him. Still I was glad for him he got his career slam- as an all-court player he was the most suitable candidate of this era to get it.
