Agassi to begin season in San Jose

January 6, 2006 - 10:14AM

Andre Agassi will begin his 2006 season at the San Jose Open in February, tournament organisers announced on Thursday.

The American, who withdrew on Wednesday from this month's Australian Open after failing to recover from a lingering ankle injury, will attempt to win a sixth title at the event which begins on Feb 13.

"We are very excited about Agassi's commitment to start the 2006 season right here in San Jose," tournament director Bill Rapp said in a statement.

"With the addition of this eight-time grand slam champion, the Open now boasts the strongest player field in its recent history - with Andre joining ... Lleyton Hewitt, Andy Roddick, John McEnroe and Jonas Bjorkman."

McEnroe will be making a doubles comeback at the tournament.

Good to know Oz is just a minor set back.

Re: Agassi to begin season in...

Glad to hear that Andre is planning to play here. Hope he will be 100% by then. I'm still sad that he will be missing the AO, though...

Re: Agassi to begin season in...

Well, that press release was out of date as soon as it was released

Late today, Delray Beach gave Andre a wildcard to their tournament which is 2 weeks before San Jose. He needed a wildcard because he did not enter the tournament by the deadline 2 weeks ago. I still think Delray Beach is a backup plan and he might not be ready by then, but more power to the tournament, they can use his name to sell tickets in the meantime.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Thanks for explaining it. I didn't realize you had to register so early for that event. It about a month away, I thought players had more time than that.

Andre makes any tournament more interesting. I'm sure the tourny directors are estatic he is going to play. Wish I could be there to see him, too!

All ATP tournament entries are due 6 weeks in advance, Challengers 3 weeks in advance, and Futures 2 weeks in advance. (The entry lists for San Jose, Marseille, and Buenos Aires are out this week, but we don't have any forums to post them in...).
