Dre lost because nobody in history would've beaten Pistol that day. Not necessarily because the 19-year-old Pete played the best tennis ever - though it's up there - but because his opponent would be so floored and intimidated by the level of all-court genius from this lanky teen the poor bloke would struggle to respond accordingly. Easily one of the all-time greatest performances, regardless of age.
great admirer of Pete's game. I never found anything 'dull' or boring in what he did or who he was. Just classic s/v tennis performed by the kind of athlete that the style richly deserves.
