    I still can't believe that the singles' match is nowhere to be found: not online or on ttc -- very odd.

    Agassi's behavior was a little intimidating towards Bambri.

    No surprises as Pete serves the crap out of the ball with Agassi's frame, but it was only one serve.

    I suspect that if he served with the frame for a longer period of time, it would probably get to him as an oversize is much more unwieldy. I find myself serving harder with mids and hitting more kickers with 98-107 s.i. frames.

    Andre didn't touch it(Sampras's racquet) only because he has a pretty good relationship and contract with Head, unlike Pete. Smart move for Andre.

    Pete really shouldn't have served so well with a Head racquet. It might just **** Wilson off.

    It can be a bit harder to get pace with an oversize, but with Pete's motion, I doubt their would be any effect. He is just too fundamentally sound, I think if anything, his accuracy might begin to suffer though! On the other hand, it's possible he might get even more pronounced spins on his serve! That would really be something.

    No. Head, nor Wilson care about one or two fooling around points in a meaningless exhibition. What do you think? They'll fire Agassi?? Yell at him?? LOL. Silly!

    Agassi just didn't care to try for whatever reason. Maybe didn't feel like potentially looking bad for a min.....it would probably take him a few minutes to adjust to Pete's frame. It's so much smaller. He wouldn't have that luxury in an exhibition.

    Yeah, I was about to say. I don't know which is more amazing, that some people would actually post these silly things without apparently thinking about it, or that I still can be amazed reading some of these things on this board.

    I heard from inside people that because of that, they are taking Sampras' name off of all KPS' that they make in the future.
