Well, Joyce also practiced a lot with Rios. I would say Agassi, Sampras and Rios all thought they were superior to Joyce and each beat him with their B games and B level intensity. I don't see why any of them would be ultra motivated to play Joyce, with all due respect to Joyce. Clearly, the talent of Rios impressed Joyce distinctly more.

Sampras had his troubles with certain players, like Bruguera, Ferreira, Korda, Santoro, Roddick, Haas. A lot of the top players have lesser players who for whatever reasons seem to play them much tougher than one would expect.
