American tennis legend Andre Agassi says Roger Federer's incredible victory at the 2017 Australian Open is tougher to understand than Rafael Nadal's nine French Open titles. While Agassi appreciates Nadal’s amazing feat, he also said that Federer’s win at the Australian Open is too hard to quantify.
"This is one of those scenarios where the statistics alone put Nadal's French Open achievements into perspective," Agassi said. “To win the French Open once is a herculean performance - he's trying to win it for a 10th time.
