    Who was more talented Agassi or Safin?

    i don't disagree that agassi was a better returner than safin. but safin was right up there. and returning roddick's serve is not the only barometer of being a good returner. federer returned roddick better than djokvoic. that doesn't mean he was overall a better returner than djokovic. and...

    Who was more talented Agassi or Safin?

    i agree with most of what you said except the bolded parts. Safin when he's redlining showed us what he was truly capable of. he shows that he wasn't just a ballbasher. he had variety. he could dropshot well, slide well, much better naturally gifted athlete than agassi, was a smoother mover. he...

    Who was more talented Agassi or Safin?

    safin is a much more naturally gifted shotmaker than agassi. safin at his peak could hit more precise and deep and angled offensive groundstrokes than agassi. had a much better serve. had better hands and reflexes at net than agassi. agassi was a better returner of serve than safin. but the gap...

    Could Sampras have won another slam if he hadn‘t retired after USO win?

    this might be counterintuitive but i think the revival of serve and volley will come from a player like monfils (like monfils, not monfils himself to be clear). monfils had the speed and athleticism and reflexes to be a good serve and volleyer. all he lacked was a good serve. and a one handed...

    Could Sampras have won another slam if he hadn‘t retired after USO win?

    But the same pete sampras in 2014 said: ''People say it's harder to do [serve and volley], the technology. But I think technology would have helped me out. If I used these racquets that Rafa is using, it's easier to serve, easier to volley. I could serve harder, longer. It would have been...

    "Pete Sampras Is Doing Just Fine, Thanks"

    and the US Open being made into a slow court. lets face it these last 4 years of big 3 winning slams don't mean that much, its easy to vulture a weak field. and this next gen/lost gen field is the weakest in the open era, much much weaker than fed's generation the so called weak era

    2021 Wimbledon SF - [1] Novak Djokovic - Denis Shapovalov [10]

    you keep telling yourself that. the next gen is the worst tennis generation in the open era history. even fed's weak era is multiple times stronger than the nextgen and lostgen

    2021 Wimbledon SF - [1] Novak Djokovic - Denis Shapovalov [10]

    It is weak when you are boosting berretini like some world beater, compare shapo, berretini, tsistipas, zverev to fed's generation Safin, Hewitt, Roddick, Nalbandian, Haas, Ferrero. fed's generation is levels better.

    Just how high was the level of tennis in the Laver/Rosewall era?

    that's the most BS cliche that tennis fans and journalists keep trotting out. tennis has evolved. TENNIS HAS EVOLVED!! how has it evolved? I can't comment on the wood racquet era. I started watching tennis in the late 80s. As far as I can tell, tennis has DEVOLVED not evolved. today's next gen...
