Re: Agassi played his last match!

OMG Andres tears really caught me up. The last time I felt so bad for a player was at Maggie Maleevas retirement.

He endured his last match. The last match he actually played was v. Baggy

Becker played it smart - allowing AA to have his moment - not rubbing it in - avoiding boos...doing what he had to do to prevail - nothing more...

Re: Agassi played his last match!

Agree. He could have broken him more times, but there was no need to rub it in really.

Re: Agassi played his last match!

What happened during his speech? I got distracted and then it was already over and he rushed out of the court without signing autograph.

Mmmh I don't think this was intentional to be honest.

Let's not forget that Andre had a set-point and Becker's 2nd serve just clipped the line.

Re: Agassi played his last match!

Too bad Andre couldn't covert on set point, because Ben cramped on match point

BTW, did Andre curse on his way to the locker room? The sound went dead for a moment.

The boos were the best...imo they come in second right after `Roddick gets booed by French crowd because he had to wipe something out of his eye´ two years ago.

I am happy Agassi didn´t play Henin-Hardenne in his last match...drop shots, lobs all over the place Just kidding.

Re: Agassi played his last match!

Damn, i don't know what to do about tennis now that the guy who got me exposed to it in the 90's is gone.

Roddick and Blake are good, but unless Blake gets to and beats Federer, there'll be a tennis void, especially with no opportunity for a pass the torch match
