Will Agassi play in his 40's ?

Having a look at this answer in a recent interview, you wonder if his new goal is not to play that long...

Three athletes anywhere you most respect?

``Wow. That's not an easy one. Alonzo Mourning has impressed me a lot through his foundation and what he cares about. His heart and commitment, pretty amazing. And seeing what people can do when they are 40 is pretty darned inspiring. Jerry Rice or Karl Malone. That hits the spot for me.''

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

The best thing about this thread is that it isnt about Federer.

Re: Will Agassi play in his 40's ?

He still play well, why should he stop??
I think when he won't be able to reach a 1/4 in a GS, he'll stop ....
I would say at 35 ... he'll stop
Let's see

Rafa Australian open Champion
YESSSSSS

Was Connors the last pro to play in his 40's in singles in GS ?

Yes syd I agree.

I don't know why people get obsessed with when one of the top 10 players, reaching QF, winning tournaments will retire? Why is age that important? Agassi, Moya, Henman are top ten players. As long as they feel fit to play and are maintaining a high competitive level I don't think their retirement should be an issue for discussion.

Roger:
Rafa:
Roddick ~ Baggy ~ Blake ~ Chucho ~ Coria ~ Dima ~ Gask ~ Gaston ~ Guga ~ Haas ~ Juanqui ~ Marat ~ Delpy ~ Tsonga ~ Murray ~ Moya:
Most ATP players:

~ Passenger on the Federer Express #111 ~ Resident of Denaon's Den of Misfits ~
~ Member of Mohamed Lahyani Appreciation Society ~

No, just after he said that in this interview. Clément will be beaten at any stage of Agassi's career, even in his 50's ! Mathieu on clay, not sure...
