I think a straight sets victory would have looked much better on paper, but I suppose we can now commend Rafa for his charitable nature as well.

Vamos.
Cos' Agassi dictated the game and was more aggressive. I'd like to know how many kilometers they respectively ran during this match, but I guess Rafa ran much more. Agassi footwork is still incredible....

I'm glad someone started this thread. I felt he did the same thing for Moya and I think it has to do with respecting one's friends(Moya) and elders (Agassi). Which speaks volumes about the type of man Rafa is. His play in the third set proved he could've taken Andre out at any time.

It sounds really nice, doesn't it? But, I don't believe that theory because I really don't think that Rafa would be so generous as to give a set to Agassi just because he was respecting his elders. I mean, he's respectful and humble off the court but he's very eager to win on the court.

The comments Nadal gave were the following:
set 1: Agassi's game plan = backhand to Nadal's forehand + make him run around a lot by distributing the ball all over the court.
Nadal said that he was pretty much allowed to play his own game because Agassi didn't put him under much pressure
Result: set Nadal

set 2: change of game plan by Agassi = backhand to Nadal's backhand + play with more aggressivity.
Nadal said that this surprised him quite a bit. He fought back quite well but still had to give up one of his serve games
Result: set Agassi

set 3: change of game plan by Nadal = reply to the more aggressive play of Agassi by being more aggressive himself in more than one way (attacking more + dictating the pace of the game)
Result: GSM Nadal

NOT A CHANCE!!!!!!!!

Nadal has respect for his elders etc etc!!!!

That must of been an attempt at humour, because Nadal is the most intense guy on the tour, he wouldn't even give his own mother a point for free never mind a set!!!!!!

He has to be the most competitve guy's on the tour!!!
But that did make me laugh!!!!!

Nadal did not gift that set to Andre. Nadal played soo defensive that whole match until the third set. Rafa was just keeping the ball in play and letting Agassi mess up. I think he knew that Agassi was going to hit for the lines and make mistakes because he had never played Rafa before. Truth be told in the second set Agassi started to come in the court much more and just blasting shots to Rafa's backand. After a couple sonic blasts from Agassi, Rafa would cough up a short ball and Agassi would have his way with Rafa. Third set Rafa said I need to step up and played more agressive.

I am afraid this interpretation might be too naive. I just can't imagine any tennis professional giving out sets as presents out of respect or friendship.

Agassi had worked Nadal in the 2nd set. Nadal didn't give Agassi anything. Nadal ran side to side all over the court and Agassi had him out of position enough to win the points. By the 3rd set Agassi was too tired to keep going. He's 35 and he had to play two matches the day before.
