Agassi the most unique player ever?

He's a baseliner yet everything he does is one of a kind. There is no player that reminds me of Agassi. Agassi was a tennis player in a sea of robots. His construction of points and ingenius variation may never be seen again. Though Tsonga has shown he likes to vary the pace of his shots which is encouraging:)

Ingenious variation? Come on now. He was a great tennis player without a doubt, but ingenious variation that is like saying Volandri is a grasscourt legend and meaning it.

Varied the speed, spin, angle and depth a lot. Plus he took the ball early which took time away from his opponent. Never seen anything like it:)

Agassi played his game and tactically he was poor. It's just his level was good enough to win most of the game that he didn't need to use his tactical side.

It didn't work against Mecir, Kucera or Sampras did it.

If he was so unique, then he'd have been a great at the net, but this wasn't the case.

Agassi had not too much Variation, angles ,spin , change of peace , volleys,etc except a little at the end of his carrer where he improved his touch and volleys a little and used drop a shot a little but still he was not great in those things, he just had an awesome ball striking, pretty clean,powerful,accurate and consistent plus a great return and was a hell of a competitor.

The 2nd and 3rd last US OPENs of Agassi's career he lost to Federer in 5 sets in the quarters, and then Federer again 4 sets in the Final. In that Final Agassi won the 2nd set 6-2 and went up a break in the 3rd set. For that portion of time Federer had absolutely no control over the match, and this was Agassi in his 2nd last year (and he'd played 3 five-setters to reach the Final). Just imagine what Agassi in his prime would do to Federer. I've said it before and I'll always say it, Federer is in a weak era (the depth is great, but the top 10 is not great compared to previous decades). There is no way Federer would beat Sampras/Agassi in their prime, nor would he beat Connors/MacEnroe/Becker. He would win some but they would win most:)

He was, but not for the 1st set when he struggled to move his feet (after 3 5-setters) and not in the 4th set when his body was clearly wilting under the strain.

I'm talking about if Agassi was 27, it would be his matchup:)

I was about to post about this, but with a different slant. The poor net game is arguably what made caused Agassi to hone such a rigorous and precise baseline game. He seems unique because his particular combination of amazing strengths and considerable weaknesses will probably not happen again.

As far as "most unique", that's a strange expression. There are a number of unique players, as you point out.

Taking this back to the subject of "unique" players...I think McEnroe was a much more unique player in terms of style and ball-striking form. No one has, or will play like John McEnroe.

Yes, I was also going to suggest McEnroe as a truly unique player. Still can't figure out how someone volleys that way. :lol:

In 1999 Agassi only cared about the slams, he paced himself so his best tennis only came out in the slams and maybe the leadup tournament to each slam. See, in 1998 he won a lot of tournaments but lost by the 4th round of each slam. So in 1999 he lost a lot of matches in the lesser tournaments and played flawless tennis for most of the slams, far more flawless than he played in the 2005 US OPEN which was a great effort but quite patchy by comparison. Both in the Final and in the matches preceding the Final he was great for some sets and error prone for others. Compare that to Wimbledon 1999 (he lost in the Final to Sampras, but that was his best ball-striking slam ever) and the 1999 US Open clearly better form than 2005:)

I think one of the unique things which Agassi does have is that two handed BH. It was not unique in that many BH's are comprable in the way they hit the ball but it's weird because most of the similar BH's are actually one handed. He hits the ball off that wing like a one hander I think.

I noticed Tsonga hits the FH a similar way for a modern day example of that wing.

question: is Agassi the most unique player ever?
I think yes :yeah:
at least he never did copy of somebody not in play, nor in behavior (he is using "HEAD" not "WILSON")
he has introduced modern style in to tennis, everybody could easy recognize his play: everything including BH, strongest, quickest & best return in the history of tennis!!!
and also his hair-cut (with and without hairs :D:haha:),
his blue jean, etc clothes ,etc, etc ... and all his "girls"

Agassi played his game and tactically he was poor. It's just his level was good enough to win most of the game that he didn't need to use his tactical side.

It didn't work against Mecir, Kucera or Sampras did it.

If he was so unique, then he'd have been a great at the net, but this wasn't the case.

You will know Sampras - Agassi head to head is 20-14 in favour of Sampras I am sure, how can you say it didn't work, when he won 14 matches against him?

Hell no, Agassi's left hand was completely extended at contact of the ball, in comparison to Hewitt and Safin for example, his left arm was used to full extent, so I don't know how you can say it was like a one hander for that reason.

Unique as a person, I don't think there will ever be another Agassi.

The way he struck the ball was fun to watch because it was so fast, so hard, and so clean. I think if you compare Andre to the best ball strikers in the game now he's probably on par...it's just the modern tennis player can do so much more than Agassi ever could. Agassi was the prototype of the future...he was the Model T, if you will. He's the original baseliner. Strokes are strokes however, and no one will ever have a forehand or backhand like Andre Agassi but that is because strokes are unique to a player, much like hand writing. Many players use the same patterns of play that Agassi did, in fact, they are pretty standard now.

I totally agree.

There really wasn't that much of a variation, he just took the balls really early especially on the return of serve, sometimes he would try to use defense to keep more balls in play and try to rattle his more "aggressive" opponent, but defense was not his greatest asset as a player. Nonetheless, he had that true legend quality and his achievements are unquestionable.

It's not better to watch Federer win slams whether you like Fed or not. When he wins slams it's always with extreme ease and with no drama whatsoever. Whenever Agassi won slams it was always epic. You can say it's fun to watch Federer play tennis when he is in slam-winning form, but you cannot say the two-week process of watching him win a slam is "better" than for anyone else on tour.

When he wins slams it's always with extreme ease and with no drama whatsoever.

:yeah: He even won Wimbledon left-handed last year :hatoff:

It's not better to watch Federer win slams whether you like Fed or not. When he wins slams it's always with extreme ease and with no drama whatsoever. Whenever Agassi won slams it was always epic. You can say it's fun to watch Federer play tennis when he is in slam-winning form, but you cannot say the two-week process of watching him win a slam is "better" than for anyone else on tour.

So you would really describe the Australian Open victories in 2001 and 2003 an epic tournament for Andre?

Don't get me wrong, I respect Andre a lot and have followed his career. Therefore I remember his dramatical matches. I just think it's not fair to make a generalization.
Roger had unforgettable matches in Grand Slam tournaments as well, including two great matches against Andre at the US Open. Beside this I can't acclaim it enough that he was able to beat Nadal twice in the Wimbledon finals only a few weeks after losing in the final of the only GS tournament which is missing in his collection to this guy.

Agassi was a colourfol person for tennis and it was a blessing for the crowd that he was able to have a long career. Unfortunately for him it wasn't meant to be to end it on such a high note as Sampras was able to do when he won the US Open. Andre had his ups and downs. He is the only player in the open era to have won every Grand Slam singles title, to have won the Tennis Masters Cup, to have been part of a winning Davis Cup team and to have won an Olympic gold medal. But he also had sensational losses and went down to No. 141 in the rankings.
I was never really that attached to Andre during his rebel time (can you imagine a player now not playing the Australian Open or Wimbledon?), but I really found my respect for him as he got his stuff together again and started to work hard on his game. He already had enough money at that time and could have easily trifled his talent, but he decided to concentrate on the sport again and you can just :hatoff: him for this.

If he was from certain other parts of the world he would not have been such a media darling for sure. He was promoted as Mr. Charming Charisma when it wasn't the case. He has prescence but he has a nasty side for sure as well as a nice one and exhibited it at times.

Agassi was a fantastic player, and I tried to watch as many matches of his as possible when he was active, but at the same time he was the eternal 2nd best - never really the world's best player - save for 99, when Pete still beat him handily in 2 huge finals.

As a person he was a huge PR machine, but still a good fellow, so it seems. If he had his bad moments, those where not any worse than temporary blips of 99% of the other players.

You are a joke in all seriousness.

I have stated numerous times he was a great player, but there were flaws, you won't see this, which proves you aren't mature enough to have a conversation about it.

When he started Lendl was the best player, then Courier, then Sampras and then Federer, it's that simple. If not, then Agassi would have had a longer run as number 1, like the 4 players that were mentioned before and been dominant as well, he wasn't.

I know what he has achieved, but you are so insecure that not everyone believes the great hype and PR bullshit.

El Magnifico explained it clearly and many others have as well.

Borg filled stadiums and he left a longer lasting effect on tennis than Agassi ever did.

And Roger Federer was once fined for tanking.

C'mon seriously, your arguments are wiizzzeak!

Agassi was a man, not an angel or a saint. He had feelings, emotions, and desires as much if not more than anyone else while on court. Actions like these don't surprise me.

Andre was tremendously skilled, clearly one of the all time best players...that said, he might be the greatest tennis icon ever. For his actions both flamboyant and humanitarian off court.

When fans of Andre talk about him, I think they confuse the player with the man off the court. Ert rather, not confuse, combine, when you talk about Agassi as a "player" you have to remember that's only the way he played the game. The time that the ball was in play. If you look at it that way, Andre wasn't the greatest or the most unique, he simply was great, and a trend setter for his day.

Well you are an Agassi apologist. Federer has zero relevance to this thread.

What so he had feelings, emotions and desires, that makes it OK to catch a serve when playing Davis Cup to mock the opponent into giving him a game? That is fucking bush league.

There is no question Andre was one of the most unique players ever, but he was also one of the greatest ever. To be really great at tennis you have to be able to play and win on all surfaces. Anybody that plays tennis knows that tennis on clay, grass, and on a fast hard court is a different game. Andre was of the very few, unique, players that could play and win everywhere.

To be really great at tennis you have to be able to play and win on all surfaces.

Alot of players that are considered great could only win on certain surfaces.

Contradict much?

That's why I use the word considered great.

So, Sampras isn't great or is his win in Rome enough for you?

What about Boris Becker?

There is no question Andre was one of the most unique players ever, but he was also one of the greatest ever. To be really great at tennis you have to be able to play and win on all surfaces. Anybody that plays tennis knows that tennis on clay, grass, and on a fast hard court is a different game. Andre was of the very few, unique, players that could play and win everywhere. Alot of players that are considered great could only win on certain surfaces.

Andre is the only male tennis player to have won every Grand Slam singles title, Masters title, and Olympic Gold medal in the Open Era. {from Andre's biography)

This is what makes him unique? Sampras is the only player to win 14 Grand Slam titles. By your logic, doesn't that make him unique also? Borg is the only player to win RG and Wimbledon back-to-back three times. This makes him unique, right? How do Agassi's unique achievements make him more unique than these others?

Despite his achievements... I feel Agassi's game was a bit over-rated...

The most "Unique" player was Sampras.

He hawked both the "Tourna Grip" and "Unique vibration dampeners" (those red and black circles).

I really love both products.

Yes and Robert Dee is the owner of an unbelievable streak, that Andre has never even come close to :cool:
That should make him the most unique player ever
