    This link goes to a highlight clip that I created from my copy of the match back in November. Are you calling it your work?

    I thought there might be some misunderstanding like that, since anyone who picks out the best points of a match will end up with similar highlight clips. I am glad it was a misunderstanding, because your post essentially says that I stole your work -- when in fact I have never even seen your work.

    Relax folks, ...
    I would love to all of both of your work! I love watching Lendl play and I would love to see more of him. I love his groundstrokes and general style and he is definitely my favourite player to watch from the 1980's.

    Krosero work there is truly great. I've spent a lot of time watching his tennis videos.

    Why did Becker bother coming to the net? Lendl seemed to pick him off at will. Haven't seen too many matches but was this the way Lendl beat him in the matches he won?

    BTW, great work on the vid.

    Becker still benefited from going to the net (it was better than staying back), and he has some pretty decent volleys in the video; but Lendl had an extraordinary number of spectacular passes in the match.

    Cliff Drsydale said that the surface was "medium-paced" and not an easy surface on which to hit winners. So Becker couldn't overpower Lendl; and Lendl neutralized Becker's serve further with chipped returns. So Lendl got a ton of good looks at the pass.

    It just makes you wonder how their rivalry would have looked if they'd played on slower surfaces. Their biggest matches were at Wimbledon, made to order for Becker's game (and even there Lendl finally pushed him to five sets in '89 and beat him at Queens in '90).
