    zomg how did federer get owned so bad by nadal? I mean, using the "greatest racquet ever" against the no-feel, no-control, elbow-killing, 11oz stick? Oh right, the APD is just a paintjob over nadal's PS85 or POG.

    The midsize elitists never cease to crack me up. Especially since there's so many of them here!

    LOL I was gonna close the video until I heard the background music. It's from a hindi movie named Gupt, I believe. Interesting choice of BG music by the person who made the video.

    Nice clip. The two greatest players of all time (tied, IMO). Sampras must be the toughest guy you can play against. You return the serve and immediately you are sprinting to the other side of the court.

    Watching that reminded me of how great Sampras was. His S & V game was brilliant to watch compared to the baseline bashers.

    That was a nice clip and it was fairly long too. Sampras is a great player but Agassi has accomplished a little bit more because he has won every grand slam at least once while Sampras only major that has alluded him has been the French. So from looking at both these great players, Agassi is the better player. Not just that but Sampras retired too early.

    WHAT THE... haha How does Federer beat Roddick??? with a tour 90 basically the same sized racket. Although its not outdated its not that powerful compared to Roddick's PD.



    No he retired when he knew he no longer had it in him. Smart decision. Although i was saddened to find out.Same with Chang when he retired after losing to Gonzo in that US Open.
