According to Andre Agassi, the former number one in the world, Roger Federer is above any tennis player in history.

In the final of the 2005 US Open, Federer lost to Agassi in four sets – the sixth grand slam of his career, now at 20.

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic closed the gap to the Swiss Great with their 19th and 17th names.

The ongoing gap in tennis between the Carnavirus epidemics could compromise Federer’s chances, now 38, after adding to his overall praise, the latest slam glory at the 2018 Australian Open.

Six years ago, Agassi declared Nadal the best of all time, but in an interview with Bild he returned to the position he held after Federer lost his hand in a flashing Maddox.

“No doubt Federer,” he said. “No one else stood up from their opponents in court, just like him.

“I do not think so [I would have had a chance against him at my best]. I played against him in the final of the 2005 US Open. I won a set – nothing more was possible. “

Nowadays, Agassi admits he is fighting to free his wife and tennis great Steffi Graf.

“He always wins,” he added. “He has this healthy ambition.

“It’s easier for Steffi to be in shape than I am

“Everything seems so easy to him.”
