    Hello everyone,

    From a text about tennis players:

    "They were teen superstars, stealing hearts, setting trends and bucking convention.
    With their loud, aggressive baseline games, flamboyant fashion sense and long hair they gave tennis a rockstar culture.
    One a pretty boy ... the other a pretty weird boy. It’s Rafael Nadal and Andre Agassi."

    Does "baseline games" refer to their postion at the end of the tennis court, i.e. that they played standing at the end of the court?

    Thank you.

    Yes, it means that they generally played from the baseline of the court.
