He won the Final against Agassi. I was impressed with him. We can all agreed that no one will respect him in the game of tennis and I don't think he cares. Lets leave it at that.
I think that was 98. Finals of the Oz Open, won Indian Wells and Key Biscayne. So quick. Powerful, takes it early. Has great feel for the ball and even better feel for the court. Totally out Agassi-ed the Agassi out of Agassi.
Saw him on an outside court at Roland Garros three years later. Spotty five setter against Ferreira.
