Hats off to this old warrior. He's beating guys 10, 12, 15 years younger than him!! In this era of athletic and "power" tennis, it's nothing short of amazing. People talk about Sampras as though he's at a whole level above Agassi--bullcrap!! Yes, he gets the nod--but a very slightl nod. From age 28 years, 11 months to just having turned 31--Sampras won one event. He got to three US Open finals which is very impressive, having won the last one. In the final 26 months of his career, he won about 57% of his matches and just the one title. Then he was finished. Borg was done at 26, 27. Edberg and Becker were done by 30-31. McEnroe's best days were over at 25. Countless other great players of the last 20-25 years were on the downside by their late 20's and out of the game by 30. Here's Andre, two months shy of 35--35!!! and he's beating top 10 players 75% of the time. Beating guys like Joachim J. and Davydenko and Roddick last year, and many others--it's incredible. He may not beat Federer in the Dubai semis--but he could, and he's there. He's still getting to quarters and semis of major hardcourt events. Usually, when he loses, it's by a very slim margin (Federer at '04 Open, Safin at last year's semis). The fact is that he's still winning 75-85% of his matches against elite players in elite events. What he's done in his early to mid 30's, combined with his 60 professional wins, a ton of Master's series victories, 8 Slams, winning all four slams, tremendous Davis Cup record, Olympic Gold, 25 PLUS quarterfinal or better showings in majors (15 finals appearances) and on and on--ANDRE AGASSI IS ONE OF THE TOP 5 PLAYERS OF ALL TIME!! IF YOU DON'T AGREE WITH THAT, GO BACK AND LOOK AT WHAT HE'S ACCOMPLISHED AND TAKE YOUR HEAD OUT OF THE SAND!!! The guy has the greatest groundstrokes in the history of the game!! And nobody has done what he has done at his age in the last 30 years--NOBODY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
