Further down the page however, is the headline for the US Open: At 35, Agassi Gives All but Falls to Younger Star Right below the summary is a secondary link with the headline, Roberts: Here's Hoping Agassi Plays On
Well if they refer to Federer solely as a Younger Star
and don't even mention his name you know something is wrong with the NYTimes
. Agassi playing at 35 is not bigger news than Federer winning back to back Wimby/USOpen two years in a row. That hasn't been done in the Open Era. I wonder if they ever mentioned it in 2004 when he won 3 majors?
