First of all it was very difficult year for him, because of Tim Gullikson cancer, but you are right, he reached final in Australian Open and won Wimbledon and U.S. Open in this year.

he should have won the 95 Ao final

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Re: Pete`s photos (1995)

Well i think that was in all fairness, agassi's time, I mean Agassi Owns pete at the Aus Open, he has never lost to pete there and he got his first GS victory against him there. Andre is one of the greatest players ever, and Sorry to say it but without pete he would have accomplished even greater things than pete did. He would have won the Calendar GS possibly in 99, he would NOT have had such a HUGE slump in 97-98, because at least he woulda known he was the best tennis player in the world if pete werent there, although the marriage was gonna take its toll anyway. He would have won 3 or 4 Wimbledon titles, I think he may have won 5 consecutive if he got the momentum going there. He would also have about 5 maybe 7 USO titles also. And with all the wins at all the majors he could have focussed even more at the French and possibly have won 2 or 3 if he had nothing to focus on winning but that.

With Pete he had to focus on beating Pete as well as being the best he can be. I also Believe Andre Would have been able to gain greater winning streaks on Hard Courts than Pete because his style was to make the opponent work as much as possible and to conserve energy.

And anyway, if pete never beat him in a GS final then people would really say "He had no rivals" (unless Pete won in 5 really close sets, then it wouldnt hurt the legacy as much haha)

Re: Pete`s photos (1995)

Natural,
You are crazy my friend, Andre could never walk in Pete's shoes, never, he is too strong for him, Andre is too mentally weak also.

Pete should have won that slam, but the match with Courier, plus his coach getting sick, takes all out of him that year in Melbourne.

Re: Pete`s photos (1995)

Well Pete believes in destiny as do i, i think it was Agassis destiny for Pete to get worn out so that he couldnt crush him which is what would have definatley happened. Agassi is quite a special player, hes the best baseliner in history, solid on both sides and can also hit winners of each side, plus he was the las vegas show machine, he could hit many trick shots to back it up. Pete was better, but Pete would have become the greatest baseliner who ever lived if pete fischer didnt want him to become the greatest all court player which lead to becoming the greatest Serve Volleyer of all time.

But my point is Andre is one of the greatest talents ever, and he had to win that Aussie open against Pete because If pete never lost a Grandslam final to Andre then it would make Andre less of a rival to him, which woulda been worse on Petes reputation too, and Andre has won 4 Aus Opens too, Pete would have 5 were it not for Andre and Edberg.

Re: Pete`s photos (1995)

I am glad he did not became a baseliner, I love to see serve & volley tennis, that is the artists of the game - do you realize that Pete did not train that hard for his matches, like Andre does - every season Andre would train like crazy just to stay in shape and be match fit, Pete didn't have to do that at all, look how many times Pete break down and still manages to win a slam, Andre could not do that.

Only sorry Pete couldn't won the French Open, that why I have this vision that he could come back and do so, maybe I am just dreaming?

Re: Pete`s photos (1995)

Re: Pete`s photos (1995)

Angiel i think u are dreaming sadly I wish dreams could come true sometimes. Serve and volleyers ARE the true artists and YES even in 2001 i remeber an interview with pete, he said his Conditioning training was "Some light jogging and lots of stretching" Thats NOTHING compared to Lendl or Agassi lol, they used the most scientific approaches possible. You know he was even not that great on court with practice, he had a reputation of not trying too hard on court when he practiced hitting with people, and it was all seen as work for him, so he took it seriously and only did it out of necessity not for fun (i wish he had more fun doin it though, he may have stayed interested in the game longer). He gave his all to get what he wanted but in practice he is not near the top ten, but he was very business like in practice so it was effective.

I think pete shoulda won the 2000 Aus Open, and the 93 Aus Open, I know the it was more fitting for him to start at Wimbledon but still It would have been 3 GS wins that year and he woulda defended in 94, also he could have defended the Aus Open and Wimbledon in 94, that would have been amazing, and he woulda had enough points to not worry about number 1 ranking. If u remeber, after Wimbledon 94 he got foot problems and was out for a few months then a few weeks before the USO he had to rush back and play as many tournaments as possible to protect his ranking, and by the USO he ran outta steam at Korda ... You know he has a perfect night match record at the USO

BTW I do wish pete had trained harder with his conditioning like andre, cos then his thalessemia wouldnt have effected him as badly and I think he would have won the french because he would have better endurance

He could have had 18 slams in all, he only lost 4 finals in slams, that would have made him perfect.

Re: Pete`s photos (1995)

He could still come back and won it, teasing aside - the sport would love that, tennis is not fun these days, it needs a shot in the arms, natural, everybody is playing the same style or way.

Re: Pete`s photos (1995)

Really Angiel?? I wouldnt have guessed it, i mean theres nobody completley dominating right now is there ... hehe, I mean to be fair hes very very talented but when Hewitt can also beat any player in the world I think it says alot. Its also funny that the players considered to be the most talented, or just plain TOUGH, are the ones who can actually come into the net every so often and do something useful.

You know the tennis world would LOVE IT. But I THINK ITS IMPOSSIBLE, at least 99.99% impossible because remeber Pete Burnt out from tennis, he got frustrated lots around 97/98 and onwards and found the tour too boring and repetitive, and yet he kept pushing, the number 1 ranking was what burnt him out the most and yes he was burnt out trust me Angiel, but he just kept goin so he could break the all time GS record, and he kept on going just because he wanted to find a reason to keep playing.

I dont think he would ever be motivated enough to come back and play, plus clay is extremley tough on the body and gives a severe disadvantage to serve volleyers, so Pete would have to play the All court game of the young pete. He would have to play baseline on return and serve volley on serve like the very very young pete did at uso 90, and even up till 96 I believe he was like that somewhat, but his backhand was a strength in his very early days and was starting to be exposed in 95/96. I dont know if he has to stamina either, so he would have to do "conditioning training" to build great endurance, plus his sickness, so he has to work even harder. He will need more motivation than it took to remain year end number 1 for those final few years, and tougher than when he won the USO in 96, if u combine all that determination then he will come back and win the french. Because he had the perfect ending in his eyes, at the 02 USO, Laver threw the coin for the finals and he beat his old rival after such a dry spell and being counted down and out.

Re: Pete`s photos (1995)

Of course Roger is dominating, but where are the rivals and fun in tennis these days - we are all seeing everyone hitting the ball the same way, in every matches,


And no my friend, he wasn't burn-out in 2000, that was when he breaks the record, remember, after wimbledon 2000, He find other important things to do, like having a life away from tennis, that is what happen, after - he move to California, find himself a woman he loves, and start spending more time with his family - tell me, what did he have to achieve after wimbledon 2000?


I must say well done to Blake, he will get it done one day.
