Score: Wilander d. Agassi 4-6, 6-2, 7-5, 5-7, 6-0 Wilander had 4 aces and 2 doubles. Agassi had 0 aces and 1 double. Wilander had 37 clean winners apart from serves: 11 FH, 11 BH, 3 FHV, 7 BHV, 5 overheads. Agassi had 65 clean winners apart from serves: 21 FH, 11 BH, 11 FHV, 11 BHV, 11 overheads. Curiously, Agassi had 11 winners from every stroke except the FH, from which he got 20. That’s not quite as many as Lendl’s 22 forehand winners against Borg in the 1981 RG final (which was 7 games shorter), but it’s close. Wilander himself had 11 winners off both his backhand and forehand. Wilander's winners by set: 5, 3, 13, 10, 6 Agassi's winners by set: 16, 7, 23, 16, 3 Agassi barely got more winners from volleys and smashes than from ground strokes: 33 to 32. Wilander got more of his winners from ground strokes, 22 to 15. Wilander had 1 service return winner, a BH; it was not a pass. He did have 15 passing shots (9 FH), including 2 BH lobs. Agassi had 4 service return winners (3 FH). One was a pass (BH). Apart from that, he had another 6 passing shots (3 FH), including 4 lobs (2 FH). My net stats were incompletely recorded, but what I have roughly suggests that Agassi approached the net twice as much as Wilander. And that is already suggested by Agassi's lead over Wilander in smash/volley winners: 33 to 15. Vilas did an interview in 2005 for a TV show called Mar Fondo. The interview is on YouTube. He says that he and Borg really began the era of using topspin on every stroke, but that Agassi added pace. “Agassi le metio velocidad, y quedaba mas lindo.” Agassi was playing the kind of inconsistent, low-percentage tennis that Wilander would criticize in Sampras at the 1989 U.S. Open. However I didn’t come across any criticisms of Agassi. In fact Wilander said, “I didn’t know he was this good.” He said that it was the first time he was seeing a player with Agassi’s attitude (meaning his relationship with the public, including his clowning), adding: “It’s good for tennis. It’s not unprofessional; it’s new.” In any case, Agassi was not yet playing Brad Gilbert tennis. He was not playing the percentages at all; and in many ways it was his most entertaining tennis.
