why you are interesting in tennis in principle?

without Andre it will be poor to watch final!



if u asked me:

most nice US Open 2005 final would be
Agassi-Blake, or Agassi-Roddick, sorry
for David Nalbandian, he was not ready
I consider Roddick's absence just as a bad luck..

I agree - it is indeed a sad state of affairs when they hide one mistake (Super Saturday) by commiting another (re-scheduling Agassi's match).

2003 anyone?

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: Agassi has become a media darling

Virtually all champions become media darlings as they get older and more vulnerable. There is something endearing about vulnerability.

Re: Agassi has become a media darling

I think Dre deserves massive respect for what he has achieved ( all 4 slams) that and the fact that he can still produce magical nights like Wednesday shows that every true fan of this sport must have a soft spot for him somewhere.I mean when I was growing up when Wimby was on all the kids pretended to be Borg, Mac or Jimbo. Becker captured the imagination as well. Andre in 92 was magic. He made people give a shit about tennis. When he won the French in 99 it was massive news . He puts tennis in the front pages and everyone from Fedex down appreciates that. So I wish him the best of luck this weekend . He is a proper legend.

Re: Agassi has become a media darling

Wow, can't believe they moved Agassi's match to the first one. They are making it even more painfully obvious what they think of his aging body and his chances for Sunday if he were to win a long 5-set match that played after Roge's.

Re: Agassi has become a media darling

His chances on Sunday would obviously be improved if he had a quick match against Robby and if Hewitt did the business. Still take the first set against Fed and we can all get out the popcorn

Re: Agassi has become a media darling

It is very difficult to root against andre this year, in what might be his final open but also because it has all lined up so well for him and he has found himself within a match of the final. I am sure, like Pete, it would be the last match he would play were he to win. He sure deserves to go out with a bang for the physical injuries he has borne and the graciousness with which he applauds his opponents. Of course, Roge/ robby and leyton are not interested in giving him that sendoff.

Thats the thing. I think most of the players and fans will be happy if Andre won one more major before he retires but if that happens, we will never here the end of it from the media

They have already overworked the Blake story (great comeback ) and if Agassi was to win, imagine what we will be enduring for the next two years

Yeah, USO has always been pro-US players in scheduling, but as late as end of Roge's match last night they said that agassi would be the later match. This is the first I hear of the change. Well, hopefully regardless of who wins the first match, it doesn't go to a long 5-setter. I wish they would just do concurrently at Armstrong and one at Ashe to be fair to all.
