Agassi accepts wild card into Queens...

Its about time Andre starts realizing how much lack of match play can affect ones game. I am glad he is going to Queens. There aren't many threats there. So hopefully if all goes well he will make it far and get match tough...

He doesn't stand a chance of doing that well...even Ivo Karlovic could beat him. He can expect to get as far as the quarters but no further. Hopefully he'll think about taking a wilcard into the Nottingham too.

Re: Agassi accepts wild card into Queens...

Arthurs is no joke though - he could beat the very best on grass and hard courts. I have never understood why he has underachieved all the time. He should have appeared in more than 1 ATP tournament final in his career.

Go Andre...get those warm-ups even though you are one of the best to ever play doesn't mean you don't need to get some match play....

and, oh yea, Andre win it!

Re: Agassi accepts wild card into Queens...

Why does he need a wildcard to enter Queen's Club?

The official player list has already been released and he wasn't included. Therefore he could only play if the tournament gave him a wildcard or forced him to qualify - the latter might favour his need for match practice!

If I was Andre I wouldn't take that risk... better to lose in first round than to qualifiers..

Re: Agassi accepts wild card into Queens...

He entered too late. Why he didn't plan on playing Queens from the beginning is a mystery to me

and "There aren't many threats there"? hm... I disagree.

Several players in the draw can (and have, for that matter) beat him on grass. IMO he could easily go out early. Or he could win. Andre is sort of an unknown quantity right now I think lol

I back you on that once Bunk - there are many threats there - Karlovic, Ljubicic, Rusedski, Henman, Roddick, Coria, Hewitt....the list is endless! Agassi won't win it - the title is likely to go to either Roddick, Henman or Hewitt i think. Agassi hasn't got what it takes to win on grass nowadays. He'll just have to settle for being second best this year.

Re: Agassi accepts wild card into Queens...

I would love to see Andre play against Roger on grass. Don't think they have played on this surface before. Counterpuncher vs All court/Serve and volley

The only one of those I'm not so sure about is Coria... I think Agassi would beat him on grass, but the others - definitely. But also don't forget Srichaphan, Philippoussis, Grosjean... they all play well on grass and haven't both Mark and Paradorn beaten Andre at Wimby? Granted he wouldn't meet those guys til later on, but there are still people, as you said, who he could meet earlier on who could certainly trouble him especially if he's still way off his game.

LCeh, I think Roger would embarrass Andre on grass.

Good idea, Andre.
