Agassi vs. Sampras who did you root for?

Mine is Agassi most definitely. He didn’t win as many slams but he won every slam.

I just always got behind him and I still root for him.
Especially when he wears that all black night outfit, that's pretty cool!!

Go Andre!!

Re: Agassi vs. Sampras who did you root for?

I am not a Fan of Andre, but I always cheered for him, most of the people always cheer for the returner, not the big server, because people want to see some tennis, I always wanted Andre to return the big serves to Pete, to see the ball in play.
Otherwise, it was quite boring.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Re: Agassi vs. Sampras who did you root for?

I always rooted for Andre because Pete always seemed to have the best of him and Andre was the underdog in their meetings.

Now I always root for Andre because he's still the underdog!

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

Re: Agassi vs. Sampras who did you root for?

I didn't really cheer for either player, but if I'd have to choose, I would definitely go for Sampras, because his game is way more appealing to me.

Re: Agassi vs. Sampras who did you root for?

Andre; but then I didn't see that many of their matches because I got so bored with tennis when Pete was winning everything.

Neither. It was SO boring watching both of them win all the time... the only time I cheered for Sampras was at the USO02 when he beat AA... then he retired, so that was fine by me!!
