This is an amazing story shared by Andre Agassi about how he deciphered Boris Becker’s service based on his tongue movement. Not only he did that but he was smart enough to understand that he should use that information sparingly so that he didn’t come to know that Agassi had figured out that peculiar thing about his service.
As Agassi put it: “The hardest part wasn’t returning his serve [once he figured out how he was going to serve]. The hardest part was not letting him know that I knew this.”
So the strategy is also about using your information advantage at right time! Really insightful…
