Blow him off the court like in the 2004 USO, you mean? I am sure he was kissing up to the American audience/Hollywood back then, too...
I am sure his serving at near 80% for most of the match was just another way of saying "Here, Andre..."
Agassi was cooked after he fell behind 4-1 in the TB, which included 3 errors, 2 of them unforced. By the time the 4th set had begun, Andre was completely demoralized and Fed could swing out of his shoes if he so desired because the win was in the bag.
