Federer pines for serve and volleying tennis heroes Agassi, Sampras

Posted By: Staff

London, June 30 (ANI): Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer has admitted that he misses the presence on court of legends like Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras.

The Sun quoted the Swiss ace, who faces 12th seed Tomas Berdych in the last eight today, as saying: "Looking back we had more great volley players. Now, everyone is content staying at the baseline. It's unfortunate because I love guys moving in."

"Thank God I played in that era with serve-and-volley players... Sampras and Agassi. Chip 'n charge guys.

"It was a completely different game plan. But you felt pressure the whole match. You don't get that feeling as much anymore." (ANI)
