The more Agassi wins the longer he will play

Q. Considering the three five‑setters, considering where you were ten weeks ago, the opportunity to go out there and play in this final, what does it mean to you?
ANDRE AGASSI: How do you find words for what this means? This has been some of the greatest memories I've ever had on a tennis court. I'll have these memories with me the rest of my life. I mean, you know, to be in the finals at age 35 just means you're going to have to put up with me a lot longer (smiling).

I've heard comments like this frequently this year from Agassi. Its pretty obvious he's not looking to go out on top like a Pete Sampras. Agassi wants to play for as long as he can compete for slams. According to doctors his sciatic nerve can be treated with cortisone injections 4 times per year with no health risk involved. So retirement will only be relevant if Agassi's standard of tennis drops off. He has 8 slams, so a motivation would be to get 10. 10 slams, career grand slam, Olympic gold medal, Davis Cup, number one ranking, a very complete career.
