Re: Peak Sampras vs. peak Federer on mid-90s Wimbledon grass

Neither was Federer at his best in that match, which is why I think it's a much better barometer than it's generally given credit for. Furthermore, Sampras played much better during the match...

Re: Why is Agassi more famous than Sampras despite only achieving half as much?

Sampras wore plain white shorts and was in bed every night by 10pm. He didn't and still doesn't speak very much. He dedicated his life strictly to the pursuit of tennis and his attempt at being the...

Re: US Open R1: Federer def Young 6-3, 6-2, 6-4

Found it rather funny that the McEnroe brothers put the sum total of Young's problems on leg strength. :lol:

Re: Who has the better career: Massu or Berdych?

Slams (or, to a much lesser extent, olympic gold) are of course a huge important measure for any tennis player and a crowning achievement, but the blatant lack of context for some in this thread is...

Re: Best single hand backhand of the Open Era?

At least Federer isn't leading the poll anymore, he was for a long time.

Re: Olympics Final: Murray destroys Federer 6-2 6-1 6-4

Sweet Jesus Christ did the trolls come out to play here. I guess it's expected, they had all that pent up energy after Federer's record 7th Wimbledon, 17th major, and return to world #1 at 31 years...

Re: Would Sampras have won the 2002 US Open if Hewitt beat Agassi

Rusedski is not the one he played the most of the list so why are you harping on him? Your best argument is someone who has yet another losing record to Hewitt? Last I checked, Ivanisevic qualifies...

Re: Where does Federer go from here?

Oh absolutely Murray was on fire and just about every ball was dropping in as well. He's underrated because well look at his slam performances prior to Wimbledon, playing well in smaller events then...

Re: Would Sampras have won the 2002 US Open if Hewitt beat Agassi

Yeah I mean what in the world would give us that idea:

Forgetting the fact that he had great passing shots, great defense, incredible return and arguably the greatest lob ever. You're right...

Re: Where does Federer go from here?

Overreacting here a bit I think, duong. Don't really think Johnny's post was mean-spirited.

The conditions were really preventing Fed from playing his aggressive game, and he simply just wasn't...

Re: Would Sampras have won the 2002 US Open if Hewitt beat Agassi

This is a pretty gross oversimplification. Agassi is an offensive baseliner, Hewitt a counterpuncher that thrives on the pace Sampras would give. Furthermore defensively and athletically Hewitt is...

Re: Roger Federer : The Quest For 20 Slams and 100 Titles

So basically the right draw is simply avoiding Nadal? Regardless of your assertions to the contrary you are cheapening Federer's slam win with statements such as "the stars aligned" and "kind draw"...

Ali is a top 3 heavyweight and a top 5 boxer, all time. It's hardly a sin to mention arguably the greatest tennis player ever, or the greatest of any respective sport along with him. Amazing how...

Sound, thoughtful, competent post. Hear hear. The "average ranking lost to" is quite telling.

Re: Coach Annacone Compares Federer and Sampras

This is one of the larger misconceptions on this forum, that Sampras was all serve and/or S/V. Even in the Edberg highlights, you can see Sampras chooses to stay back on some of his serves, and...

Re: Wimbledon R2: Rosol def. Nadal 6-7(9) 6-4 6-4 2-6 6-4

Kept waiting for the letdown. Kept waiting for the letdown... and then Rosol serves three aces and a forehand winner to close out the last game to love.

Absolutely unbelievable, and well...

Re: Gilles SImon steps into the equal prize money debate

This is an old and tired debate, yes WTA is for the most part garbage but it's done and over and here to stay.

Best of three is already too many.

Re: So which semifinal will be the first one on Friday?

That'd shock the hell out of me but I'd rather it be first as well so I guess we'll see when it becomes official.

Re: Why is David Ferrer so bad in Roland Garros?

Look at his last 6 years, Sexybeast made a good point.

Glad to finally see a breakthrough here and hopefully he gives Nadal a serious fight (he has beaten him before) but he probably lacks the...
