    Why is his racket up before he tossed the ball? Was that like just a thing he tried on that point, or did he try changing up his service motion for a bit?

    In 1993 Agassi was trying all kinds of things with his serve and that particular clip I believe is from Wimbledon of that year.

    It sorta kinda worked for a while.

    wrist surgery eventually corrected the problem but it was to alleviate the pain he was being caused by his full action at the time
