I sat there and thought no wonder Andre attacked serve coming from the other baseline , His hand-eye was built and I witnessed how it was done.
Sorry, but who is DB? I assume it was earlier in the thread, but I couldn't find it.
Mike Agassi also trained his daughter, isn't it? The one who married Pancho Gonzalez? Why did she not rise to the top?
I saw Andre hit back a Roddick serve in a WTT exo. Sitting in the first row, it was an incredible experience - a humongous serve returned at the same speed by a small swing of the racquet, leaving Roddick speechless. There has to be genes behind it.
Remember that Mike was a boxer in his country. Genetics is definitely at play here.
