Re: Agassi might miss Aussie Open with injured ankle, won't play on clay anymore
Andre should be able to leave on his own terms, last I checked, he was capable of beating everyone at their best, with the exception of Roger and is a 2005 USO Finalist. Not bad for an "old" man that's proven all he has and ever needs to on clay.
Why risk ruining what chances you have left of winning a GS by playing 30 ball rallies with dirtballers? It's simply uncalled for.
Clay is just a necessary evil, if you ever want to be considered great, all of the greats have skipped Roland Garros at some point or another, if you look in the past, it was the red-headed step child of them all. The only slam that received less attention was the Australian Open and even that would be a bit of a reach.
