Agassi pulls out of Toronto tournament!!!

from bbc.co.uk:

Andre Agassi has pulled out of the ATP Canadian Masters due to a lower back and right hip injury.

Agassi made the announcement just hours after his 6-2 6-4 win over Jan- Michael Gambill at the Mercedes-Benz Cup - his fourth title of the season.

Agassi said: "I have had success at the events in Canada before and I regret not being able to take part this year."

Younes El Ayanoui should become the 17th seed

Andre would have played if this was Cincinatti you can be assured off

Feel sorry for Andre ....... never in a million years
he has Steffi

Andre keeps doing that. He pulled out of Hamburg as well, after winning Rome. I guess he doesn't feel the need to play many tournaments, because he keeps winning those he does enter. Whatever, Andre.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

i agree Layla except that i think that it's bec he's won Toronto before (as he had won Hamburg before but not Rome),so he's less motivated to go thru the grind of playing there when he can just rest up for the week and stay with his wife and son. i think too that Andre is trying to be smart about his age and his schedule. at 32, it's time to be honest about the fact that he's no youngster and he has to cut back on the playing and shoot for a more intelligent schedule. there's a lot of Brad's influence left in him. i can live with that.

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'm not making excuses for him Magnus. i'm just saying that the guy is getting old and this may be why he did it. he could have done like the Potato and called in a strange virus or a stomach ailment or an diagnosed respiratory problem...or...but he didn't. he just said he's not playing. that's what he said after Rome too. i like the honesty myself.

what this means as a fan as is that's hard to rely on Agassi's appearance at a tourny. that is what sucks.

hey Egg, why do you think he would have shown up in Cincy?

Yeah, I agree with you tennischick. He does need to be smart about it and protect his health. But this is his second Masters, and they're compulsory. Wouldn't he rather cut down on regular tourneys? Masters bring more points and more attention.

p.s. His fans should be happy he's still playing and winning at 32.

This is so unfair, I am really annoyed at him, I wanted to see him play live, and I really hope Safin doesn't play the night session now tomorrow, cos I was guessing at Roddick and Agassi, and no way am I sitting watching Roddick.

What tennischick says makes sense. But he had won LA before too, so... Maybe he should play the big ones and sit for the small ones... Oh well.

wooden jesus, can i be saved? i spent all my money on a future grave.. ill cut you in on 20% of my future sins..
