I do agree a bit on Federer, but I prefer the early years Federer for watching purposes.Of course, there have been some very spectacular players to watch who mainly played from the baseline.Agassi was very bright at times...and of course Jimmy Connors, who also attacked the net but was mainly a baseliner.
