They also didn\'t show his underhand slice serve that caught Lendl off guard.

Chang’s tactics to stop himself cramping up consequently caused the breaking of Lendl’s concentration and rhythm. The last things Lendl would have expected were moon balls and underhand serves. Nobody would have thought any the less of Chang if he forfeited. It’s amazing how resourceful people can be when they have nothing to lose.

For anyone saying it wouldnt work now since guys can take the ball on the rise. No one was better at hitting on the rise than Agassi. Both players hit quite a few loopy balls. Agassi frequently utilized the moonball even on hardcourt.

This would still be effective on the pro level if mixed in. Amazing that college and club players dont use it more.

Felt sorry 4 lendl that day , he was in a lose lose situation . I\'ve got my suspicions bout Chang\'s cramps , he was running just fine when he had to .

Lendl has a huge forehand and would have killed it later in the match.

Chang never had cramps ! Just couldn\'t go head to head with Lendl. Ivan crunched him the few times they met.

What people don\'t realize is that Chang was struggling with severe cramps after the 4th set and even considered retiring in the 5th. This was one of his numerous tactics to 1. Throw off Lendl\'s concentration and 2. Alleviate his cramps. He would never sit down on change overs, he would always pace back and forth because he\'d risk not being able to get up if he sat down. He moonballed to gain extra time in recovery because he was slowing down, back then taking a ball on the rise was rare. He tried to do as little running as possible and also distracted Lendl and got the crowd fired up. He stood near the service line on his match point to distract Lendl, and it worked!

Crazy how many people missremember this being the final, when it was just the 4th round and so Chang won 3 more matches after this match.
