Superlative - De File
Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
I don't watch a lot of tennis. But ever since I was a grade-schooler watching Borg-Connors and Borg-McEnroe, I've had tremendous luck at managing to see the matches that I would regret having missed. That streak continued tonight, even as my other streak faded into the distance. The final set and tiebreaker of Agassi-Blake at the U.S. Open was superlative. I don't know where Agassi came up with the reserves to fight back from two sets down. And I'm even more amazed that he overcame being broken in the fifth set. As color commentator McEnroe pointed out, Blake played the best tennis match of his life. . . and lost.

i wish i had watched it. i knew the second i saw agassi on the "top fold" of espn.com that it must have been great. and then seeing that it ended on a tiebreaker in the fifth set...man. unfortunately i overshot my tv quota this weekend and i had to be diligent.

I've never played tennis but, I love watching it. I wish I could have seen that match. Agassi is so discplined in his playing now. I like to see the way he approaches his game.
