Quite the opposite, Becker was often forced to stay back, pretty hard to dominate somebody with your big serve and aggression when it keeps coming straight back at you with interest, he had to rally because he was being pinned to the baseline.One reason for this was tactical, as Becker, in a misguided attempt to show his variety, often attempted to rally with the American from the backcourt.
This was just AA's little joke at BB's expense. Somebody thinks it was meant seriously?Agassi also recognized a subconscious tic of Becker’s – sticking out his tongue in the direction opposite of where he planned to serve – that made his massive serving easier to handle.
agassi was a nightmare for many of these players (ask stich !) but some of them (in addition to pete) still had a decent record against him : ivanisevic, krajicek, rafter...AA was pretty much the anti serve volleyer, he owned all the serve volleyers (except Pete), loved the target they gave him, crushing big serves back at big servers was his specialty.
