Being 17 and only having played tennis for 5years, I never got the chance to watch Andre on clay.

Could anyone kindly explain to me what Andre did on clay to be able to win it once?

thanks in advancee :]
Vince.

Not only did Agassi win RG he made 3 Roland Garros Finals, he was the favorite in the first one and really just choked, should have won it twice at least, so it wasn't just tactics, he was a true clay player, his game suited it very well. Just watch some of his matches on DVD and you can see his tactics. He was using vicious angles to get his man outside the tramlines and then going for the open court, basically the same tactics as he uses on every other surface but maybe more angles than usual.
