He keeps using the same responses to different things showing no reading comprehension at all. Very frustrating. Usually we have solid discussions but this one has been a total joke. Probably time to cut bait. Not worth the investment at this point.
I actually wanted to know what people rated this match it wasn’t just created for the sake of you and mike danny and a few others.

Sure, Agassi was beatable, but the fact that he put on a strong performance does not matter at all? If Fed actually trashed him, you'd be saying "hurr durr Fedr trashed a useless old man, weak", but when he actually did put up a fight, you're still not ok with it.

2011 Nadal had no chance of winning either, yet I'm sure you're propping him up as a great opponent. The guy got breadsticked by an injured Djokovic in the 4th and even ran out of gas at only 25. :-D But I'm sure you'll still say Nadal had GOAT stamina.

Fed fired 69 winners, served at 76% and had his peak movement and FH. By any standards he was very good.

He trashed Nalbandian in the QF, so his level was clearly good enough to trash players who weren't playing well, which wasn't the case with Agassi.


But did Fed beat anyone on the level of 2005 Blake? No. Agassi also beat a young Berdych who'd go on to win a masters title later that same year. Fed literally beat only mugs.


So Agassi winning a set is the same as Fed not winning it? LMAO. You either win or you don't. And that applies to 2019 Wimb too cause I don't remember seeing Fed with the Wimb trophy in his hand LMAO.

Then there's Agassi nearly winning another set, while Fed pretty much became a non entity afterwards, but don't let that ruin your narrative.


Still did much better than Fed who literally amounted to jack sh*t.


I just find it funny how Djokovic looked great against his old man, but Fed didn't. Awfully convenient, considering Fed had better stats than Djokovic too.

Exactly, 2020 AO was Djokovic's worst AO, while 2005 USO wasn't Fed's worst USO. So, once again, a difference in quality of the winners between 2020 Djoko and 2005 Fed, so once again Agassi had the tougher opponent.

Even discounting the 3rd set, Thiem was the tougher opponent so of course Djokovic was going to look less good.


Different players and match-ups, man. Agassi takes the ball early inside the baseline, while Thiem stands 5 m behind it. Thiem is a lousy returner, while Agassi is an elite one.

Fed sure as heck wouldn't be going 5 vs Thiem, who'd be useless at returning the Fed serve probably and Fed would just rush him and would not allow him to get into a rhythm.


I just found it hilarious how Agassi's performance didn't matter at all just because to you Fed looked better in 2 areas, while also ignoring the areas where he looked worse than Agassi.
At least some Djokovic fans of them rate Agassi from the year before even if it is odd they don’t give any credit to Agassi here.

Pretty sure Agassi here is the sort of match that gets massively inflated by highlights. He gets aced 18% by Federer way before the latters serving peak. Lol draw, all top 10 wins that year were Argie mudballers.
Federer amped up his serving vs AGassi usually. And he served at 76% in this match. Agassi broke him 3 times even with that.

At least most people had the common sense to rate Agassi here as a good rating while admitting he was not at his best (which is true)

Some seem to think Federer was not still a great server back then just because he improved it in later years and Agassi is a nobody.

5-6/10 which is being VERY generous given the guy was struggling to move in the last 2 sets
