Today Agassi looks like a 36-year old

Only his serve is keeping him in the match right now.

"Normally" Becker should win this.

Yes, he's really showing his age today.

Re: Today Agassi looks like a 36-year old

It's not his age, it is his sciatic nerve problem, which has nothing to do with age.

It's tough to watch.
Good that he pulled off the second set just now.

Becker is a jerk. He can still win, but probably won't.

He's 3/3 in challenges though.

He still looks like he's 36, regardless of his sciatic nerve problem.

Because he lost the second set, and is now playing tactically dumb.

Re: Today Agassi looks like a 36-year old

Agassi is feeling the pain, you can see it. He would have an easier time otherwise, but Becker is playing very well also I must say.

Oh. Well, this match is pretty horrible. For a second I thought you meant he is a jerk for hitting dropshots! He is smart.

Realistically, with how Agassi is moving, Becker should not have a 1:1 ratio of winners:unforced, but he keeps spraying forehands out all over the place.

And Agassi can't play with any strategy at this point because he is physically limited.

Re: Today Agassi looks like a 36-year old

Anyone else thinks it´s funny to hear the crowd boo whenever Becker drop-shots Agassi?

How the hell can you do that to him? haha
