US Open quotes
Roger Federer and Andre Agassi

"Pete was great, no question, but there was a place to get to with Pete. It could be on your terms. There's no such place with Roger. I think he's the best I've played against"
Andre Agassi places Federer above Sampras.

"Him saying that, I'm a little surprised, but I don't think he would be lying in here"
Federer readily accepts the compliment.

"That's fantastic. Tying your idols - isn't that great? It's every boy's dream and I made it come true today in a memorable final"
Federer realises he has tied Boris Becker and Stefan Edberg on six Grand Slam titles.

"The best player of this generation, yes. But nowhere close to ever, because, just look at the records that some guys have and I'm a little kooky"
Federer has to call a halt when it is suggested he might be the best player ever.

"If we didn't have a tear in our eye and a lump in our throat, we don't have a right to be one of the two finalists. It hurts real bad because it matters so much but that doesn't mean that from here on it's doom and gloom"
Agassi's trainer and friend Gil Reyes says his man can play on.

"He's lost three times this year. Yeah, he's definitely beatable. I just don't like those odds"
Agassi has the final word on the 'how good is Federer' debate.
