nice stats krosero

I remeber this being a classic semi-final match - a great performance by Becker agaisnt a very strong Agassi at the time.

The way I remember it (though it is a long time ago now) Agassi was running away with this match playing "in the zone" but apparently within himself - beating Boris's serve and volley tactics very effectively. It looked like Becker had no chance.
Then Boris had what i like to call an "episode" (much screaming at himself in german) before completely changing tactics and playing Andre from the baseline - at his own game - so to speak...and started beating him at it too!

This complete change seemed to really phase Andre while Boris's confidence grew and he went on to win from there. Both played really well at times but mentally Boris "the tank" got the edge in the 2nd set ...and didnt loose it.

Didn't work against Sampras in the final though...
