I think the best period for tennis was 1988-1992. You had incredible players like Becker, Edberg, Lendl, Wilander at their finest, an exciting new generation in Agassi and Sampras and the old generation like McEnroe still able to competitively play the odd grandslam. You got to see serve volley tennis, baseline tennis, baseline vs serve volley, touch tennis, power tennis you name it. At the same time, the pace of play was not as slow as in the late 1970s nor as serve dominated as the late 1990s. I just saw Becker Agassi Davis Cup 1989. The match was awesome. Agassi's service returns and ground-strokes were amazing and so was Becker's volleying and ground-strokes. Both players hit out of the world winners. Although Becker won the match, seeing some of the service returns Agassi hit you just knew that he was going to end up being the nightmare of serve-volleyers which he ended up being!
