The American has named the current period of tennis a ‘golden age’ which includes ‘the three best ever.’ Andre Agassi, was interviewed by ThePostGame where he analysed the modern game of tennis and he shared his thoughts about the dominance of the top guys on Tour.

The former world No.1 said:

“I feel very sorry for all the best tennis players of this period, which are in competition with the three best players of all time.”

“Of course,” continued Agassi, “from my point of view, one of them is the greatest ever. In many ways you can get to the conclusion that this period is the golden era of tennis. Andy Roddick has had a lot pressure on his shoulders, trying to keep alive the hope of the American fans to see him triumph in a Grand Slam. I understand why I feel his anxiety, arriving in tennis after McEnroe and Connors,” said the American.
