thanks for bringing up this match. i am a great becker fan and i love the way he turned it around in this match.
also, i doubt how many people on this board have seen their 1989 davis cup match. it was a match of the highest quality.
sometimes i wonder what would've happened to the agassi-becker rivalry if agassi had not got the idea to read becker's serve based on becker's tongue (as agassi had told in his commentary during the USO QF between fed and roddick). i think it would have been more even. becker had a great serve, though not at sampras' level.
also, i still believe that becker would've given sampras a better fight than agassi in the 1995 USO F if he had got through, simply bcos he would've held serve much more consistently. we would've had at least 2-3 tie-breaks.
