Default Re: Did Agassi have more fans than Sampras?

Agassi had a LOT LOT more fans than Sampras. how old are you? not to be rude, but Agassi's popularity was well beyond Sampras's especially in the US for various reasons. A ::: he had a more exciting and daring personality. B ::: ever since he was young the tennis world embraced him and heralded him as great. C ::: he was a tennis fashion icon, and to a degree a fashion icon for athletics in general. D ::: he had a lot of high profile relationships with celebrities. E ::: his life was chronicled and followed closely with all of the drug problems and relapses and he grew a ginormous fanbase when he overcame his problems

Agassi was always more popular

OP accomplishments do not automatically make you the most popular player in your country. Sampras was a great guy but he was rather stale in his persona (probably something that benefited him in the game of tennis). Agassi was the most popular tennis player in America through the 90s and into the 2000s
