35 year old Agassi competed with Fed for three sets in the 2005 USO final but yeah he sucks, innit.

Federer benefitted from a weaker clay era to get to the finals every year- once Guga, Costa, Coria, Gaudio, Corretja, Moya and the rest disappeared the competition got weaker and only Nadal could stop him. Still I was glad for him he got his career slam- as an all-court player he was the most suitable candidate of this era to get it.

He is a spaming tard, don't even bother.

the achievment that sets Fed apart from Agassi/Nadal's career slams is the fact Fed has reached all 4 slams finals in one calender year - THREE times

no other man has done that since Rod Laver in 1969

you could argue Fed's 4 slam finals, 3 times in 4 years, is better than Rod's 2 grand slams.

I agree that this is very impressive, regardless of the ear. It´s especially impressive that he managed this in 2009, when most would agree he was no longer at the peak of his powers...

But this is a different achievement than a career slam, which Federer shares with both Nadal and Agassi.

there are many things that set Fed apart from Agassi/Nadal, but yeah reaching all 4 slam finals 3 time is a big deal.

We are derailing this thread btw.
