    Do you mean jealousy??


    No, its got nothing to do with that.

    I just never liked his game.

    Sampras was the perfect combination of power and grace, while Agassi, for the most part, depended on playing the ball baseline-to-baseline.

    i've seen an interview with him where he said he's gonna come back when he gets well? is that possible?
    I was under the impression that he could never play again. Hopefully I'm wrong.
