This partly explains why Agassi's gonna play tomorrow

According to the latest NY Times article i found online on Agassi

"According to Reyes, Agassi has had four cortisone shots this year, most recently after reaching the final in Montreal last month, and will have no more this season. "We're not crazy about the cortisone, but it allows us to work," Reyes said."

I thought he could only take 3 shots a year. So much for my assumption.

'How many cortisone injections are needed?

In spite of surrounding folklore, there is no specific limit to the number of cortisone shots that can be given. Practical concerns are, if the shot does not work, then why repeat it? If it does work, cortisone is extremely effective and not too many shots are needed. There is a limit to the amount of cortisone given in one dose, even if injected in several areas of the body; this varies depending on the size and physical condition of the person.'

I can only pray that we don't get a repeat of the French Open situation in the next two days
