Definitive Jest is a vocabulary-building and SNOOT-approved word-of-the-day blog centered around David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest.
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.
Great interpretation(s) Anonymous. Very much appreciated!

di - twoagnate - descendant from'Descended equally from the two players, "self and opponent.' puts it beautifully
