I agree with this guy in thinking it will be his last year. For real.
The end for Agassi?
June 20, 2005
Andre Agassi's decision to forgo Wimbledon was no surprise. It's fairly clear that he has balanced the other things in his life (wife, two children, charities) against the pain of playing and the fact that he has won all four Slams and has nothing left to prove, and arrived at a decision.
That would be to take a final cortisone injection after Wimbledon (the injection 's effect lasts about three months), and that will allow him to play one or two lead-up tournaments to the U.S. Open, where he will play his final event.
It's instructive to repeat Agassi's emotional words about tennis following his first-round loss at the French Open:
"It's what I do until I don't do it anymore. And it's given me a lot. I'll assess the necessary components at the end of the year, but I can't afford to pollute the potential of my winning matches or tournaments with sitting on the fence, with where I am, what I'm doing, why I'm doing it. You know, some things you have to question. Other things you have to not question. You have to just put your head down and work."
