Question In Their Primes : Agassi or Sampras?

Alright, every wta board has its Steffi/Monica or Steffi/Martina N arguement, and every atp board require an Agassi-Sampras debate

Its just the laws of the land, I don't make them, I just abide by them

So in their primes, who wins?

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I suppose I should answer this myself...

Grass, Pete wins hands down. In 1999 when Agassi was perhaps in the best form of his life, he lost to Pete in three tight sets.

On harcourts of Clay, I pick Agassi. Clay is a given, and IMO he just edges out Pete on hard thanks to his better return of serve, and better groundstrokes.

Indoors, I,m not sure

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Sampras always seemed to have the slight edge over agassi in their primes.

A guy named Pete

Sampras GOAT

FC Porto. Arsenal.

Del Potro. Murray. Nalbandian. Soderling. Useless Gil.

I hadn't really considered the mental aspect - for both...

Agassi doesn't like to play Pete I suppose as much as if it was anyone not named Pete , and Pete uses 200% of his energy to whip Agassi as well as he can, because for some reason he had to put it all out for Agassi. hmmmm?

Agassi still takes him on clay, I don't change that.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Sampras.

Has Agassi won any slam more times than Sampras? (Except the French)?

You should know this: Aus Open



But the initial question: Sampras.

Yes, to elaborate on what christina pointed out, Agassi has won Aus 3 or 4 times?

And Sampras won it twice.

The Lawn Lizard wins on grass, hands-down, everytime.

Agassi wins on clay and rebound ace, hand-down, most times.

They are equal on carpet and hardcourts

but the Lizard has a mental edge in that he can lure Agassi into playing his game and that is always a mistake.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)
