    man, those are some poor choices. TTC needs to get the rights to better old matches(madrid? mercedes benz cup? who cares?)

    show more agassi circa '95, that's when he was at his most exciting.

    agassi's biggest moment as a pro was his french open finals win vs. medvedev in '99. i don't understand why TTC didn't show this match during the week leading up to the french open (when they were showing french open classic matches).

    TTC doesn't own the rights to show US Open matches.

    What happened to the Roland Garros classic against Courier?

    I set my dvr to record it, only to come back and see ATP Legg Mason and WTA Acura Classic recorded on it.

    Did TTC air the Agassi vs. Courier at all?

    anyone watch Agassi-Wilander? pretty good stuff, can't believe Wilander was picked for the team in '95.

    Interesting that 3 of the 4 matches they are showing are matches that Agassi lost. Couldn't they find ones he won for an appropriate tribute?

    The Becker match was really nice. The loss to Courier is an extremely interesting viewing as well.

    I'm not sure what Robredo did to warrant this.

    I would really like to see Agassi v Mancini in Rome in 89 and Agassi-Edberg at the Masters in '90 (both of them).

    I really enjoyed the Documentary, I hope one day they might sell it as a DVD. Would be nice if they had an extra too, like a Complete Match.
