Correct, there were a few that had 1st serves that could hang with Pete, but day in and day out, no one could hang with his 2nd serve. Pete had the only 2nd serve that could frustrate Agassi. Pete would pick up his 2nd serve up quality against Agassi and it was almost as effective as his 1st serve.
Pete had the best serve overall that I have seen since I started paying attention in the mid-70s.
