Nalbandian upsets Agassi in Australian Open tuneup

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Andre Agassi lost his final Australian Open tuneup match, falling 6-2, 6-3 Saturday to Argentina's David Nalbandian in the Commonwealth Bank International.

Nalbandian, who knocked off top-ranked Andy Roddick a day earlier, broke Agassi's serve four times and constantly pressured the American in the championship match.

Roddick withdrew from a consolation match against second-ranked Roger Federer, saying he had blisters.

The 33-year-old Agassi is seeking his ninth Grand Slam title and fifth Australian Open crown.

``I was sort of pressing in a lot of parts of my game today. I was pretty lucky to get the five games I got,'' Agassi said. ``Today was a tough day, no question. I felt I played well. He played well on the big shots. I found myself admiring some.''

Agassi is a real champion and always gracious in defeat. As for David - guess I don't need to say any more than I AM SO HAPPY for him

i think david could go far in ausopen....lets just hope he does not get another sore wrist!!!

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?
