Saw him play doubles (with Mike Leach?, maybe) at Wimbledon against Wilander and Nystrom in 1985.

Becker hit the ball so hard, the Swedes could not believe it. They kept mumbling (in English) "just wait him out, and soon he will be exhausted."

(Wilander and Nystrom won it in 1986.)
In the end, the aggressive all-court player always has the advantage against a power-bashing baseliner.
