Nadal reminds me of Agassi

I have been thinking about this for a long time, Nadal likes to punish his apponents, just like Agassi, and he is very physical and in great condition. What do you some of you think?

I think Nadal plays much more defense than Agassi ever did... Nadal is much much much more of a counter-puncher than Agassi. Agassi is one of the greatest offensive players ever, Rafa won't ever be (but he will be one of the greatest defensive players).

Re: Nadal reminds me of Agassi

Their game is completely opposite, actually. But you may be right about the mental approach. They are/were both great frontrunners and are both almost always in superior shape as compared to their opponents, allowing them to win some matches by tiring the opponent out. However, they tire their opponents out very differently.

I dont know you, but I saw Nadal attacking in every possible point in the 2nd set

Yeah, I saw it too. I am not saying he can't, and in fact, he must if he wants to beat Federer. But you see Nadal on the run all the time, unlike Agassi. Agassi dictated points all the time. If Nadal ever learns to dictate points like Agassi, he'll get his own Grand Slams.
