Can Agassi realistically win another Slam?

Agassi is a legend of the game but in today's game he seems like a much weaker version of Nadal (without all the crazy spin)...I don't see him really even coming close to winning another grand slam. He hits the ball way too flat, doesn't have a powerful serve, and is getting up there in age/back injuries ...he's already 36. What do you all think? Is he overdue for retirement?

Of course he won't win another slam.
I hope his body allows him to keep playing for a while, though!

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

No.

If not for Fed he may have won another within the past couple years, though.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Can Agassi realistically win another Slam?

No, he is too injury prone now to play enough to be in good enough form to win a major.

Re: Can Agassi realistically win another Slam?

No, But i'd love to see him try 1 or 2 last times this year. He's still as good as anyone not named Roger if he can find his form and health

Re: Can Agassi realistically win another Slam?

its funny how when Sampras wasn't as dominant people in the tennis world were all saying that he needs to retire but when its Agassi its okay if he keeps playing and not winning slams...

Re: Can Agassi realistically win another Slam?

I don't think so but if Andre is still going on sure he thinks he can.

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

Re: Can Agassi realistically win another Slam?

He came one match short only a year ago. It's possible, but difficult. I hope he has a nice final run before he leaves the Tour
