But Agassi did not have so many matches like Federer has at this age and Agassi did not have 17 GS so who is more hungry,

So you two clowns know exactly how much someone was "hungry", can you tell me also the numbers for the next lottery?

TBH, I think that record is going to stand a very long time. Roger was never really injury-prone but the rest of the guys on the tour are.

the fact Agassi was less hungry as you say means he had less motivation and still took prime Fed to 5 sets.........fuck some people here stupid beyond belief

No. He has had quite a few close calls during his streak, namely against Wawrinka in Australia and Tsonga in Paris last year, at some point he will end up losing one of those sort of matches.

Agassi's longevity is astonishing, I think him being competitive against Federer past-prime is evidence of that a prime version of Roger does not simply blast all past ATG's as some here would suggest.

Novak's chances of equalling this record are similar to Fernando Gonzalez's chances in the 2007 A.O. final, according to Andy Roddick's assessment.

Slim.

Agassi was hungry as much as Fed at that time when they played ,If you compare Fed who played against Murray in SF at AO 13 to Agassi who played vs young Fed then. That is the question . This Fed now has 17 GS and a lot of records but that Agassi had 7 or 8 GS with no records on his name as Fed now. So if Agassi could defeat Fed back then he could be hero but if Fed could take a win against Murray in SF It is just nothing for him another final, Like Wimbledon 2012 almost
everyone felt sorry for Murray and Fed just got his 17 GS, It is just business for Federer,He just broke Murray's heart and his mother and girlfriend as well. All of them cried in public as if someone was dead,So Fed was as a monster in many people 's eyes not as a "hero".

Don't you love the arguments in MTF?

We have posts claiming Djokovic won 6 slams because it's a weak era, not much competition. Federer won his slams in a stronger era. Then turned around saying Djokovic won't make this SF streak as competition is tough, blah, blah, blah.
