Will Agassi win another slam?!

With Agassi's 35th birthday approaching later this month, and many saying this will be his last season, does he have that one last slam in him and go out as Pete did?

Playing Andrea Agassi on WTAtour,

Seroiusly, only a huge opening on any slam draw this year could give him a chance

Re: Will Agassi win another slam?!

Yeah he could do it. If there´s a freak slam and top seeds go out early, he could hold it together and get a win. And he may be inspired in a final against a top player. You can never count this man out can you? He´s one of the all time greats, still very fit and I expect that when he gets close to retiring, he´ll motivate himself, using Graf and sampras´examples and say goodbye with style.

No.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Will Agassi win another slam?!

I would say "no". But then again I think he won't lose sleep over the fact that he probably won't win another Slam because he already has a few, coming from all four Grand Slam Tournaments

Not very likely, but he's playing well enough that it can't be ruled out entirely.

Re: Will Agassi win another slam?!

Every Slam win requires some luck somewhere in the seven matches. Except some of Pete's Wimby slams where he obliterated fields without any tough spots.

Re: Will Agassi win another slam?!

yes, as long as someone else takes out JesusFed in the semi's

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: Will Agassi win another slam?!

If this is his last season I would have to say no way, with clay-courters like Coria, Gaudio, and Nadal at the French, Fed and Roddick and Wimbledon, and Roddick, Fed, and Hewitt at the USO, it just doesn't look good. But...If he does continue to play next year I think if there are a few upsets at the AO, its his.
