Re: Did Agassi announce his retirement in 2004 or not?

Not that I've read anywhere. In fact, a few places have published interviews with his coach that say he's been working hard and is ready to go!

I havent seen anything about it. You'd think if he did it would be all over the news, so I doubt it.

Re: Did Agassi announce his retirement in 2004 or not?

I think that Agassi made some comment about being tired of all the running around that he has to do for tennis and some reporter took it the wrong way and wrote that Agassi was retiring.
As far as I know (which isn't saying a whole lot ) Agassi has not made any offical comment about retiring

IMO i think he will retire probably after winning another major...i think he will retain his AO title n will annouce his retirement....

Q. As the older player, you don't feel like it's your role to go up to the younger players and talk to them first?

Re: Did Agassi announce his retirement in 2004 or not?

Well it's been around in the press (german speaking that is) that he thinks loud about retiremend as he's sick of travelling around with the whole family. Like nor for the AO he takes Steffi and the tow kids with him (special mention no nanny...). He sais he likes to spend more time with his family. But also says he's in good shape for the AO - so I wouldn't be surprised if he calls it quit sometime this year too. Maybe after AO if he wins it or at the UO like Pete did who knows we will see.

He said in an interview that his tired of travelling around and that he is going to retire but he doesn't know when yet.He says he'll defenitly play the AO but after that he doesn't know what's going to happen.

I haven't heard or read anything of the sort.

Re: Did Agassi announce his retirement in 2004 or not?

I don't think there was a formal announcement of his retirement. That would be extremely sad for his fans.

He has been a great player for more than a decade!

Re: Did Agassi announce his retirement in 2004 or not?

From the Agassi matches that I have watched I don't think that he annonced his retirement after any of them.

I'm not afraid of anyone, but sometimes I'm afraid of myself.

Life it's a great game.

He was too good. I would suggest to his next opponent that he doesn't look to me for advice.
