I haven't seen anything from Andre that approached the level of play he displayed against, say, Sampras at 2001 USO or Federer at 2004 USO, both QF.
So what makes you think Agassi won't be
subpar tomorrow? Was it his under 50% 1st serve for most of today (except for 3rd set)? Or his mind blowing 9-winners-to-35-UE on the backhand side? Maybe his getting caught flat-footed
by every other decent serve-return and being forced to harmlessly half-volley from the baseline
as a result? Perhaps it's his 35 year old body, complete with a herniated disc, that will propel Andre to the top - coming off back-to-back-to-back
5 setters, no less... and no day off before the final.
Anything is possible; that's why they PLAY the games. That much goes without saying. But whoever is picking Agassi NOT to get blown off the court tomorrow, all things considered, is seriously reaching.
