Aggasi: Nadal better than Federer

Hall of Famer Andre Agassi voiced his opinion in Singapore on who he thinks is the better of two of the 21st century's greatest tennis players.

Agassi told the Singapore newspaper "Straits Times" that Rafael Nadal should be considered the greatest tennis player ever, not Roger Federer.

Agassi is quoted as saying that "I'd put Nadal No. 1, Federer No. 2," adding that "it's just remarkable to me what he has done, and he has done it all during Federer's prime."

"Nadal had to deal with Federer, [Novak] Djokovic, [Andy] Murray in the golden age of tennis," said Agassi. "He has done what he has done, and he's not done yet."

Federer has 17 career Grand Slam titles. Nadal has 13, and leads the all-time head-to-head meetings series at 23-10.
