wow Federer has more fans than I thought around here.

anyway I prefer Sampras as I admire true attacking tennis and S&V styles very much, we see much of Agassi's baseline game these days (except for taking the ball that early which only Federer and Davydenko are doing).

on a more personal level I liked neither of them

Hey, Andy is playing pretty well right now! LOL And how about Jimmy Connors and Johnny Mac? And how about the Williams' sisters? So we have had our fair share of great tennis players.

And don't a lot of players from all over the world still train in the US? I know it's true in other sports.

Default Re: Question for federer fans, who did you like more Agassi or Sampras?

As a huge federer fan, Agassi is one of my favorite players, which sounds wierd because both have contrasting styles. I can't really pinpoint why I love Agassi. I just enjoyed seeing him play, I loved his personality, and I think he was a decent player. Pete was definitely the better player and in general I enjoy serve and volley tennis, but I just liked Agassi more.

I prefered Sampras, he was my first big Idol in tennis. Agassi was too much in your face and I've never been a fan of grandioseness. Besides Sampras' smooth serve technique just bedazzled me I guess.

Later on I could not avoid the fact that Agassi was a great champion and had the best tennis hand eye coordination for sure, certainly of the modern era.

Andre is the king of all types of tennis courts & surfaces along 20 years!
He won all possible Grand Slames (including French Open ).
Andre is just very nice person.
He is well known in all parts of the world
I never was Feda-fan...

That is a good point, I was hoping that this thread showed exactly what you said, because most people assume Federer's fans were Sampras fans, but this is not always true, it seems to be about even with Agassi fans becoming Federer fans. I guess Federer takes the ball on the rise a bit which is an Agassi trait (though Agassi takes it a lot earlier, but still)
