The Head-to-Head Records They'd Rather Forget

All the great players have some surprising records against certain lesser opponents, usually from the early days of their career when their games were not fully developed, or when they were going through bad patches of form and minor slumps. I thought this would be an interesting topic to start a thread on. I'll start things off with some of Agassi's most surprising defeats:

The records of Sampras, Kafelnikov, Rafter, Kuerten, Federer et al will I'm sure yield similarly interesting results...

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

I dont think andre loses much sleep over 1-0 h-h. Real H-H records are already compiled in GWH's thread.

Re: The Head-to-Head Records They'd Rather Forget

Andre has an even head-to-head with both Brad Gilbert (4-4) and Darren Cahill (1-1). interesting...

Re: The Head-to-Head Records They'd Rather Forget

Gilbert has a 2-0 record over Lundgren - a ratio not transferred to Roddick and Federer, however.

Re: The Head-to-Head Records They'd Rather Forget

Well looking at Agassi's losses on clay and so early on his career is really no surprise, its rarely considered a good surface for him anyways. His flat groundies arent nearly as effective on clay. Nonetheless surprising, anyways Agassi wasnt as committed a player early on his career, so losing to lesser players early on his career especially on his perhaps weakest surface (dont know if grass is his weaker surface, yet it still rewards his return of serve and flat strokes) so perhaps clay is his weakest surface, however his volleys are anything but special to say the least.

Most of those Sampras losses also came early on so not too big of a surprise, what is funny is that his former coach has a wining record over him lol.
