I was watching the biography of these two great champions and their stories are so inspiring that it starts to give you goosebumps! Since I enjoyed it so much, wanted to share these videos with everyone...

Just makes you appreciate how much they have sacrificed to achieve greatness and pity the fools who try to argue about their achievements and belittle them to make their favorite look good! I request all of you to just discuss about the videos and NOT make stupid hypothetical H2H & weak era arguments!

Here are the links to the videos,

Pete's best shot was the two-handed backhand, and his coach changed it to one-handed backhand, lol. If he had stick to two-handed backhand, he would probably win 20 majors by now, lol.

It's true. When Pete was using two-handed backhand, he beat Micheal Chang pretty easily, but when his coach changed it toone-handed backhand, Chang started beating him consistently. Andre even said Pete was so good with two-handed backhand, and he just laughed when he knew that Pete changed it to one-handed backhand.

Funny. Maybe two . . . at Roland Garros.

Agree...Pete may have been better off with 2BH, If not Roland Garros he would have certainly won the 2 US opens he lost to Hewitt and Safin when they pinned him on the backhand side and he couldn't be aggressive
