Re: Andre Agassi vs Joachim Johansson AO 2005

My favorite sequence from that match was from either the first or second set. Pim-Pim starts with hitting a doublefault. Then an ace, another ace, and yet another ace to go up 40-15 looking like he doesn't have a care in the world. Agassi hasn't even been allowed to touch the ball or do anything but walk from side to side between points in the game, and decides to sneak up deep inside the baseline for the next serve, reads it perfectly, and cracks a return at Pim-Pim's feet to make a point and vent out a good deal of frustration. Great moment.

And for the record, Pim-Pim was anything but brainless. He was a player who always did his homework prior to a match to opt for the best possible strategy. Very underrated tactician.
