And Pete says if he were creating an "ultimate player" from his opponents he'd use Agassi's return, but he'd also take a look at Hewitt and Chang's returns. So I don't think he'd agree with FrisbeeFool's take.
I went to a utube vid and watched Pete and Stich feast on each others 1 hander
with just about any 1st serve they put there. Thought they should have used it
more, but seemed to save it for bigger points.
