Their first encounter which was thoroughly controlled by Agassi [13]. “Honestly, I think he didn’t play his best and I certainly know I didn’t,” said the tournament champion. “The first time you’re playing somebody you’re always feeling them out, and much of the execution comes from having a certain feel of your opponent.” It was Agassi’s 11th consecutive win. “He’s playing the most spectacular tennis of his career,” Henman [12] said after the final. “I don’t think it’s a surprise to anyone that he was going to come on strong.” In both sets the deciding breaks came in games when Henman missed relatively easy overheads.
