Agassi the fifth player to pull out From TMC (plot by Jim)

It's sad to see him pulling out, he will be replaced by Gonzalez.

any takers on that this might be a plot by Jim McIngvale?

Re: Agassi the fifth player to pull out From TMC

Don't know about that, but I think it's definitely the crucible of a power struggle bet. in the ATP bet. Tournament Directors, who've unfortunately seized control, and the players, to push the length of the season to the Top of the Agenda. Players have two choices. Separate & form their own union immediately, or do something like this. Otherwise Tour. Directors have zero incentive to do much of anything.

I doubt espn will get too pissed off about the ratings being Zero, cuz they've invested no money & are showing the crap no one wants to see in Garbage Time. Highlight of Top 8 Tournament is Injured-Roger. Wow

Re: Agassi the fifth player to pull out From TMC (plot by Jim)

I agree the players need a union...look how baseball has such a powerful union. They still can't implement a tough steroid policy because of the player union in baseball. These players need to stand up for themselves or else this can happen again next year.

'I'd like to be in his shoes for one day,' says Mats Wilander, 'to know what it feels like to play that way.'
