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.)
The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are cocksure, while the intelligent are full of doubt.
