    I thought Andre looked positively embarrased; he doesn't know what to say to Youzhny, nor has any answer to what needs to be done to beat Roger I guess :(

    Facing a 14-0 h2h, Youzhny would have been embarrassed to even walk on to the court..

    Tell that to Soderling, Melzer, Baghdatis, and all the others who got their first win over Federer in the past 3 years. Youhnzy would have won if ******** appeared( been on vacation since 2012 RG)

    LOL at theGreatNeb comment at youtube. "I think it was hard to hear, but I think Andre said: Try some Crystal Meth!". :lol:

    Youzhny sure wasn't getting any enlightenment from Agassi.

    It's a bad idea asking Agassi for advice because he also had no answer for Roger, he once said there's no place to get to with Roger.

    Agassi was in his 30s when he started playing peak Fed so it's not surprising he felt that way.

    If anything, it's a good attempt from Youzhny. Federer may wish to consult someone in the crowd for advice on how to beat Nadal (or, more importantly at this stage in his career, Djokovic, as he faces him tomorrow). With Djokovic and Federer at a 5-5 slam H2H, a Djokovic victory would mean that Federer has lost to him at all four slams.

    Agassi was too old to contest his matches with Federer properly. I was impressed to see him hit that well against prime Federer, at his age.
