Nadal is just an inherently much better player on natural surfaces than Andre ever was.
yeah, only thing is agassi's RoS is clearly better than nadal's and that in itself is a huge thing on grass ....agassi handled low bounces at wimbledon fairly well ....he'd find it much easier to get into a rhythm on today's grass ....
