Sampras v Agassi footage a great reminder

The rainout today was unfortunate, but getting to watch the 2001 USO quarterfinal between Sampras and Agassi was a real treat. Honestly, I was getting a little bit of recent-itis, but watching Pete's second serve and attacking style reminded me why he is arguably the GOAT. I'd really forgotten how massive his baseline game was, and the fluidity of his court coverage. But that 2nd seve still gives me the chills; can anyone remember any players whose 2nd serve had that consistent level of effectiveness?

I'm pretty fired up after watching that, I think I'm going to head out and hit a few buckets of serves today! (you better believe I'm going to take the old PS85 out of storage for this session)
