  1. I was wondering the same myself. Possibly meant as diーagnate, possibly refering to the joining of his and Incadenza's tennis philosophies? Or merely the allied nature of all the possible responses spiralling out toward infimity in his head. Though I lean toward referencing the relationship between him and Incadenza given that agnate refers to male limeage, specifically father and son.

    1. An infinity fathered by the two infinities of choice and execution contained in the two players.
