Modern physiologies - B. Becker

What a story. B. Becker and A. Agassi. Some historicals matches between these both outstanding players. And now the final curtain: B. Becker wins and A. Agassi leaves the stage.
The only thing that's wrong in this story: B. does not stand for Boris but for Benjamin! But both are from Germany.
Benjamin Becker, the world number 112 who is playing just his second grand slam event, sent the 36-year-old Agassi into retirement with a 7-5 6-7 6-4 7-5 victory at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Agassi cried afterwards. "You have given me your shoulders to stand on to reach for my dreams, dreams I could never have reached without you," the American told the crowd after sobbing for several minutes.
John McEnroe had joked with Agassi about playing against B. Becker before the game. Agassi said that he has a lot of experience in playing this player. A misjudgement.
Bye bye Andre and say hello to Steffi. The will always be the one with 12 more grand slam titles in your family. But 28 titles together this will be hard to overcome.
