If he's a noshow at 2006 AO, put him on my list of players that will "vanish in 2006."

He did two of them! Both included best 2-of-3 matches plus hit-and-giggle doubles

Anyway, hopefully his ankle will improve enough for him to be able to play.

Bet the ankle heals in time for Dubai so he can pick up that big check and all the swag.

Re: Agassi might miss Aussie Open with injured ankle, won't play on clay anymore

His ankle will be fine. It just takes longer for 30-somethings to recover from injuries.

But I am very happy to hear that he's going to forgo the clay season. Clay is no good for his body anymore. I'd rather see him healthy at Wimbledon.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Oh no, this is terrible
Add to the hip problem, sciatic nerves, and now this. I guess its going to be very difficult for him to play even half schedule next year
I hope he can play Australia Open, and do well

If he can't even play half a schedule, then he should retire. I didn't know players could choose to skip an entire season...

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.
