    • @nenad on peter sampras era with a lot faster courts which it was easier as an underdog to make an upset he wouldn't do shiet against so many serve and volley players...The slow courts meta since 2002 are protecting the "big" 3's baseline pushing grinders for decades now.

    • @TheSupineSmokey13 Indeed, a much better all court game, hence the better overall record against Agassi. You can't be the better player if your only option is to stand back all day and hope to hit all of your returns and passing shots in without any mistakes. Nothing to do with drugs and other excuses.

  • I just realized: one shot Sampras never really used, despite having virtually all shots in his arsenal, is the drop shot.

    Antoine LAntoine LIl y a 15 jours
    • In the nineties, you didn't need the drop shot in your arsenal if you were an offensive player: the drop shot is most effective when played inside the court, but when you were inside the court back then, the better option was to go to the net if you were good at it. Nowadays, going to the net has become much more dangerous because of the new strings. Most offensive players play mostly from the baseline, so the drop shot has become a good option for them to shorten the rallies and win the points, especially since good passing shots or lobs are easier to play now (in case the drop shot is not a winner). They need the drop shot to be at the top of the game.

      AlecAlecIl y a 10 jours
    • he did use it, but not very often. When he did use it, it was with quite mixed results. I'm guessing he wasn't too confident at it and thus didn't go for it often. As was pointed out already, though, his drop volley was very good.

      Hehehehe hahahahaHehehehe hahahahaIl y a 11 jours
    • I remember he would do it from time to time on hardcourts but not often. I remember a forehand drop shot winner against Moya at the 1997 Aussie Open final.

    • @Paul Davey I started thinking about his speed mid way through the video and it amazes me to my very core ,and his passes from backhand cannot be hit without a stable base and his speed enabled him to reach to the ball a fraction faster .

    • All the opponents he beat apart from Pioline were Slam winners and appears in another Slam finals. Pioline himself appeared in two Slam finals. Even the Big 3 does not have this claim. They all beat a one slam finalist. Every era is different . The surfaces and balls used were so distinct back then. The games were big contrasts. Every one stays back now and grinds from baseline

  • Pete Sampras: at his peak, he was devastating on both the first and second serves. Sampras serve was arguably his best weapon (perhaps second only to his attacking style of play), Sampras had such a fluid and relaxed motion that allowed him to hit such a heavy ball with huge amounts of spin which made it both difficult to read and even harder to return with any purchase on it. It was also so good in the clutch moments.

    • @nakluv and if I recall right, they are using faster balls on (at least some) clay tournaments. All of this leads to a "homogenization" of the surfaces. Either way, I'm not sure what your problem with Sampras is. His game was about as powerful as could be during his era, among all his contemporaries who played under the same conditions. I watched the exhibitions he played vs Federer in 2007/2008 and he was still serving & hitting hard, his serves were still faster than a lot of the players on tour these days, and those matches were played with the heavier balls as far as I know. Sports science has advanced a lot however, training regimens, diet, etc etc all is improved so it's not surprising if modern players can hit harder.

      Hehehehe hahahahaHehehehe hahahahaIl y a 5 jours
    • @nakluv it's both. It's the balls AND the surface. Wimbledon is not the "same grass". If I recall right, they changed it to perennial rye grass in 2001 which both commentators and players have remarked as playing slower.

    • @Hehehehe hahahaha "Wimbledon when it was reported a few years ago that cans were opened before the tournament to reduce the pressure of the balls, and counteract the effectiveness of big serving. Tim Henman made comments about that. Serves seem faster than ever but as we know, that’s timed straight off the racquet but will slow through the flight, as it reaches the returner, the returner has more time to get into the point, especially as guys are not coming in to put away volleys anyway." it's the balls

    • i worked as a coach at the 93 US Open - Sampras bt Pioline - he was next on the practice crt after I had finished working with my player - I asked his group if they were ok if i stretched court side, yes fine. What was scary was the pace and weight of his slice b-hand. We all knew about the serve & f-hand but his slice b-hand was a joke - 6 inches over the net, 6 inches from the sideline like a bullet - ball after ball & this was his defence!

Andre Agassi winning few slams till mid 90's then late 90's by winning 4 majors out of 5 between 1999 and 2000, Todd Martin played Sampras in Australian Open final, if no top American reached finals of a slam then Mal Washington came out of no where and reached Wimbledon final. Last time American won a slam is 2003 and last time American reached a grand slam final is 2009.
