Andre Agassi forced out of Wimbledon

Just read on the back page of the Daily Mail that Agassi is pulling out of Wimbledon due to a very bad recurrence of a hip injury. He has been told to rest.

Also said that the US Open is going to be more than likely his last ever tournement. He plans on making a come back at the RCA championships in Indiana in preparation for the Open.

He is reported to of phoned the All England Club this morning to tell them that he will not be playing at SW19.

Very disapointing news...

Re: Andre Agassi forced out of Wimbledon

He was really looking forward to playing Wimbledon. He's never been fave of mine, but this is sad.

SINCE THERE'S NO TENNIS ACTION I WENT FOR TONGUE ACTION

Re: Andre Agassi forced out of Wimbledon

Shame if that's true. Especially since it's probably the last chance I will have to see him live.

I agree - I have never been a fan of his, but if this is true it's a sad way to end such an illustrious career. Has it been confirmed anywhere else though? I'm at work at the moment so it's difficult to check everywhere.

this is sad..

Q. As the older player, you don't feel like it's your role to go up to the younger players and talk to them first?

Re: Andre Agassi forced out of Wimbledon

That is so dissapointing, he deserved chance to play one last wimbledon and get an ovation and bow out to the acknowledgment of a centre court crowd

Re: Andre Agassi forced out of Wimbledon

Oh no, I so wanted him to play. But it's a wise decision for him to end his career after this season.

Re: Andre Agassi forced out of Wimbledon

What a bad news . I've never been a fan of his but this just sucks that he has to skip his possibly last Wimbly. Get better soon Andre.

Re: Andre Agassi forced out of Wimbledon

Win #800 has proven extremely elusive.

Sorry for all the Agassi fans, but this truly does look more and more like the end for Andre.
