Becker made his first serve on 9 of 14 break points (64%). He was broken twice on first serve and twice on second.

Agassi made his first serve on 13 of 16 break points (81%), not having to go to a second until early in the third set). Each time he was broken it was on first serve.

So Agassi actually served better than Becker on break points. But in the tiebreaks it was a different story.


Becker made 8 of 8 first serves in the tiebreaks. By tiebreak:

4 of 4 (no mini-breaks)
4 of 4 (no mini-breaks)

Agassi made 6 of 8 first serves in the tiebreaks. By tiebreak:

3 of 4 (he lost 2 of the 3)
3 of 4 (he lost 2 of the 3)

I can't recall seeing a stat like that over the course of two tiebreaks, though McEnroe came close in the 1981 Wimbledon final over Borg (made 9 of 10 first serves in the two tiebreaks played).
