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

Agassi was a big fighter but in this match wilander had better stamina.

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

No i dont think he ever go tired.

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

This was a great match!

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.
