Agassi was never one of my favorites, but...

I'm crying when they're showing all this footage. I think when he plays his last match I'll be bawling, and he was never even one of my favorites. I'm so emotional!

That's how I feel, too. I was never a fan, but I realize that when Andre walks off the court after his final match, it'll be the end of an era.

Re: Agassi was never one of my favorites, but...

Well its normal. Even though I am not a huge fan of Nadal or Murray, I'll be sad once they end their careers. You're getting used to them, so it saddens you (at least me) when they're not around anymore on the ATP Tour.

It's going to be something sad but a little bit special.

Andre will be missed when he finally plays his last match - tonight or whenever this two weeks.

Re: Agassi was never one of my favorites, but...

very very sad this is andres last tournement, tennis wont be the same hope he wins tonight and not go out in the first round. I have liked Andre since 1992 every match he won at wimbledon that year I liked him more and when he got to the final I really really wanted him to win. From then on I have been his fan in all his ups and downs. So I will cry when he plays his last match

Re: Agassi was never one of my favorites, but...

Crying, well someone has to do that.

Agassi has a loving family, has had an impact on tennis and got his outstanding career achivements. He has had his time and now he moves onto his next phase, it's natural.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Agassi was never one of my favorites, but...

He fascinated tennis fans and the whole tennis world from the 80s on, he was one of the (if not for a long period the) most interesting personalit(y)ies since he arrived at the circuit and won except two Masters Tournaments (and the Grand Slam Cup is missing, too, but it did not count for the ranking) every big title that mattered in his sport.

What else is there to say? Pretty self-explanatory that this retirement is HUGE...

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

So incredibly emotional!

I can't even imagine what it will be like when players that I look up to like Ai and Andy retire

I hope Andre has a run here this week

Re: Agassi was never one of my favorites, but...

Andre has always been my favorite player. I started watching when I was 15 years old. I watched because of Andre. I've loved him for 18 years. It is unbelievable that it's been that long. My eyes teared up too. I'll be crying like a baby when he plays his last match. I'm tearing right now. I can't believe I'm never going to get to see him play again. I've been trying not to think about it, but it's going to be hard for me.

We'll miss you, Andre.

Re: Agassi was never one of my favorites, but...

My earliest tennis memory was of watching Agassi play and I can't imagine him not being around.

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro
