Thanks for getting this. So Becker served better on the break points than Agassi did, but he ended up losing. The key is that Agassi served much better in the tiebreaks and won them both.

Score was 7-6 (4), 7-6 (2), 4-6, 6-4

Agassi made 7 of 9 first serves in the tiebreaks (78%). By tiebreak:

4 of 5 (he won 3 of the 4)
3 of 4 (he won all 3)

Becker made only 4 of 11 first serves in the tiebreaks (36%). By tiebreak:

1 of 6 (his sole first serve was an ace)
3 of 5

Becker made 2 double-faults in the second tiebreak, one when Cyclops went off as he was going into his motion for his second serve and the next one on set point.
