AGASSI defeats BLAKE in an epic: 3-6, 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, 7-6 (6)

Blake was up a break in the 3rd and playing beautiful tennis. He was controlling points with both his FH and BH amazingingly enough since his BH has been weak in the past. He made a few mistakes and then Agassi started playing really well. James weathered the storm, got his 1st serv % back up and served for the match at 5-4 in the fifth only to be broken at 15.

AGassi fell behind early in the TB, had a MP, James saved it and then Agassi won it at 6.

Some really great ball striking in this one. The crowd was a bit ambivalent at first but when Andre got behind, they were solidly in his corner. What a great run by James into the SF. All credit to the old man for such a comeback. Into the semis at the age of 35.

mi amor. te amo tanto. congrats to the original Bald-Master


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)

I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. This is one of the best matches I've seen so far this year. Incredible stuff. Congrats to Andre and I'm really, really proud of James for doing so well after everything he's been through.

I am happy that Agassi pulled through. Unfortunately, he may not have enough in the tank to win against Ginepri. He has to wrap it up in 3 or Ginepri is through to the finals (not something I want).

Need ideas for a new signature...

Rofe he has 2 days off. He should be able to put up some fight. Robby might have the edge though.

Yeah no, Agassi is going to cruise to the final.

Well, barbeque my hamhocks! Your half is gone! Now don't - I say - don't give me no lip, son. You've gotta stick by your bargain. I'd do the same! ....... Well, hog gravy and chitlins! MY half is gone! I-I-I know what you're gonna say son. When two halves is gone there's nuthin' left - and you're right. It's a little ol' worm who wasn't there. Two nuthins is nuthin'. That's mathematics son. You can argue with me but you can't argue with figures. Two half nuthins is a whole nuthin'!
