    Sampras and Agassi (no real comparison)

    I mean Andre Agassi is without a doubt one of the most talented players to play tennis and helped shape the game we see nowdays but, I have read in a few places and some people actually believe that he is more talented then Sampras. Which in my view is nonsense, I mean Sampras had it all and a...

    James Blake ..what else can we say...

    I think a lot of people are very surprised with him. He is now winning on surfaces that he never really did well before. In the clay season he had two good torunaments and only did not go further because he faced an Inspiring Ancic in Hamburg and a home crowd favored Gael Monfils in RG. He has...
