isn't there a story in Becker's autobiography where he attempts to explain his record against Agassi?...apparently, in late 1998 or 99, the two of them were at some event in Germany (I think it was something to do with Oktoberfest)...each of them had a few drinks, and Boris asked Andre why he always played so well against him...according to Boris, Agassi said that after their first few matches he figured out that whenever Becker was serving, during his toss, he would stick his tongue out in the direction that he was about to hit the serve...from then on, Agassi would watch for the whether his tongue was pointing to the right or the left, and lean that way for the return

not sure if I totally believe that, but it's a good story
