Its no wonder Fed dominated to such degree. It was a perfect time to dominate. We see when there are legimitate talents on top now though. Fed can't nor would he ever have dominated the slams to such a degree. .. Unlike during that mug era
mug era is when your principal opponent was out of tennis for 2 years and his mind was not 100% totally in tennis , agassi interested 100% in tennis when he was more old , in sampras`s peak years he faced mug competition too without agassi out of top 100.

baby nadal won titles in indoor and outdoor hard too......maybe the opposition in hard courts were more stronger than the patetic opposition now ( with the expetion of nole and federer)

Yes, my kid will be the next GOAT like Roger Federer!

Still waiting for the right man and his genetic material, though.


EDIT: what an epic 4000th post.

An Even MUGGIER era is when your main rival is still a baby and can only do anything on clay for mostly 4 years.. That is better then another instance where Andre was only MIA for 2 or 21/2 years. Andre could play on every surface and he and Pete met at every slam.

From 04-07, Nadal couldnt even reach a slam semis during Fed's domination period. Baby Nadal had to pick up the pace for Fed's true trash contemporaries since mugs like Roddick, Davydenko, Blake and the rest of the clowns could do nada. Geriatric Agassi has to pick up the pace for those clowns too. When its THEM who should have been standing up to Roger. So who had to take the responsibility? Pre Puberty Nadal, Hospice Andre.

So whats Muggier again?

You clearly have no answer to fed4ever's total demolition of your case. Federer had to go through stiffer competition to win his slams than Sampras did. End of.

I'll be waiting to hear who thinks for the first 4 years ( where Fed amassed his most slams 03-07) where this "stiffer" competition came from outside of Nadal on clay. Fedmug4ever's post is very biased, and not taken into very good context.

If you are impying that Federer didnt have much competition who exactly did Sampras had?

Agassi,Courier were busy sorting themselves out. Krajicek was inconsistent. Edberg,becker were in their twilight. All he had was Goran,Cedric Pioline,Malavai Washington,Todd Martin and co.

Federer's competition >>>> Sampras's Competition .

Federer's competition >>>> Sampras's Competition .


And Agassi wasn't in his twilight? ROFL. Pure double standard federphile thinking. In fact, he was more older and broken down in the early 00's then Edberg was in the 90s ( who was number 2 in 1993) and Becker. Goran is the equivalent of Roddick.. Not as good on hardcourts, but much better on grass. Kraicjek was injjured most of his career, but when could beat anyone on grass as shown in 96. Id like to see WHO in the 00's reached that level on grass, Richard did in 96.. I'll be waiting.

Agassi sorting himself out.. But at least he could get beyond a hardcourt slam QF unlike Nadal. Courier>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Roddick all day every day

Yes you did. You say fed4ever is biased, then so are you. Truth is no one can objectively quantify the quality of an era. You can always put your own spin on things the way you want them to look like. You can say Sampras faced tougher competition and Federer fans can say he had tougher competition. But you're shit out of luck because you don't have any substantial way to prove your weak era business but 16 > 14 is pretty hard to disprove. Good luck with that.

Sampras's competition looks good on paper because of the names, but in fact he beat fewer notable players to win slams when they were in the Top 10 (&, ergo, playing well) than Federer did. Check his post again.

I'm not biased.. I say it the way it is... Agassi from 92 or 93 on a threat EVERYWHERES. Nadal, either not around, just a pup on grass, and 0 SF hardcourt slam APPEARANCES as the main rival.. Agassi even though up and down was still more of a threat then that Nadal during that time period.. You can't dispute that at all.

Roddick>>> Goran on grass?? Don't make me laugh? Safin who shows up only in 2000 and 2005 to play slam tennis? Hewitt broken down after 2005.. Agassi geratric with a bad back showing how muggish the 00's is. Rafter in his prime more of a threat then A-MUG


People trying to say Pete plays old Edberg past his peak ( yet hes still #2 in the wold in the early 90s? Becker>>> ANY Roddick on grass. Baghaditis, Phillipousis, First time slam finals Gonzales are the equivalent of Pioline and others etc. I could go on.

No, you say it the way it is for you. You don't even bother to read fed4ever's posts. You keep throwing around names but as fed4ever has stated in his post, Sampras rarely beat those big names when they are in the top 10. As Sophocles said, it only looks good on paper. Just as I believed, no substantial proof that Sampras faced tougher competition except for your own self belief that he did.
