However, if he can get out in front he has a chance.

I haven't seen anything from Andre that approached the level of play he displayed against, say, Sampras at 2001 USO or Federer at 2004 USO, both QF.R.Federer said:So all in all the stars have lined up for Roge to pick up his 6th slam, but he cannot do it on the quality he brought today unless andre is also subpar
No, I dont know this is why i say "unless agassi is also subpar". but for tomorrow, I will say again: andre is in a very special situation. he knows that his chances of returning to slam finals with the physical injury, and with age and such is not getting better. i believe he is going to play with a vengeance, pull out all stops, until he might literally collapse on the court.AgassiFan said:So what makes you think Agassi won't be subpar tomorrow? Was it his under 50% 1st serve for most of today (except for 3rd set)? Or his mind blowing 9-winners-to-35-UE on the backhand side? Maybe his getting caught flat-foot by every other decent serve-return and being forced to harmlessly half-volley from the baseline as a result?
But whoever is picking Agassi NOT to get blown off the court tomorrow, all things considered, is seriously reaching.
The problem is Roger still had BETTER stats than Andre did today... against a better opponent in Hewitt. And his young & healthy body will recover much faster.R.Federer said:The statistics you show are not good, but Roge's level today everyone will agree was not good either
IMMORTALCHAMP said:Q. Do you know what it takes to beat him? Is it a matter of executing it? Or are you still looking for answers?>
ANDRE AGASSI: You hit it in that corner and that corner and that corner and that corner over and over again, and you beat him. But you got to do it.
