agassi said he "felt" he was better at 33, i.e in 2003, 04 around that time ... than at 25, around 95, when he had arguably his best year level wise ....
according to him, he was better during the start of fed's domination period than during the 90s, go figure
Again, what does Agassi get out of it?
Hewitt is saying the same thing. Why would these guys just talk up tennis now as if it needed any further promoting, the AO had record attendences this year.
Agassi and Hewitt gain NOTHING out of promoting the game, especially by admitting that they weren't as much of a challenge for Federer.
