    Thanks for the link. First time to see Agassi play volley and overhead so much and well.

    I don't remember Wilander ever getting tired in a match. He probably did I suppose.

    I would ban the grunting on the court.
    What a class difference between wilander and the punk caricature agassi was at early career.

    Andre at a young age already had brutal groundies. Wilander was great at absorbing that power though, must be the coke :D

    Wilander had a real great sliced backhand in 88 and he served very well:)

    Showed that placement can be just as effective as power.

    C'mon. Agassi was young and perhaps a bit undisciplined then. Cut him some slack.

    He seemed to get tired or something in the 1985 U.S. Open semifinal loss to McEnroe. He should have won that.
