Agassi says Federer, Nadal are the best

His own rivalry with Pete Sampras was intense, but Andre Agassi feels nothing matches the current battle for tennis supremacy between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

"Federer and Nadal has been even more compelling, with the standard of their play and that they are the antithesis of one another," Agassi said Thursday on a conference call. "Having someone dominate the game like no one else like Federer, and then Nadal to have a two-to-one record over him in his prime.… that speaks to the complexity of our sport."

The Las Vegas native known as master returner of serves said the level of tennis played on the ATP Tour is continually rising and that Federer, a record 16-time grand slam champ, has "an entirely different skill set than I ever encountered. Roger have pushed the game further than Pete or I ever did."
