I think this poll is going to be a little bias. This is one match I'd love to be able to see. No matter who wins. Two great players.

Shooting the Breeze

High school football season is so close you can almost smell it in the mid-summer air, and there are plenty of compelling stories waiting to unfold at area stadiums over the coming months.

But it's a different WNC sporting event altogether that's got my interest level at a peak.
On Aug. 28 at the Asheville Civic Center, Andre Agassi will play his first exhibition against an active ATP player since retiring in 2006. His opponent will be Russia's Marat Safin, who's currently ranked 55th.
I can't help but wonder if Agassi, now 39, might use the match against an upper-tier player to gauge whether he's still got what it takes to compete at a few ATP tour events next season — or sooner.This is the opinion of staff writer Tyler Norris Goode.

Thanks Stephan

I think for Andre it's all about having fun playing tennis again, not about prvoing anything

Andre Agassi to Join Safin in Exhibition

Grand Slam Asheville set for Aug. 28; tickets on sale now
ASHEVILLE, N.C., July 30 /PRNewswire/ --


Tennis legend Andre Agassi has joined the Grand Slam Asheville lineup and will take on Marat Safin at this rare exhibition event, which is now scheduled for August 28 at the Asheville Civic Center. Agassi - who takes the place of the previously announced Novak Djokovic - and Safin, who are both former world #1s, will go head-to-head in a best-of-three-sets match. The date of the event has been moved from August 6 to August 28.


From 1987 until his retirement in 2006, Agassi amassed 60 singles career titles, and he won a gold medal at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. He spent a total of 101 weeks at #1, including 52 consecutive weeks from September 1999 through September 2000. He won eight Grand Slam titles, becoming - in 1999 - only the fifth male player to win all four majors: Wimbledon (1992), the US Open (1994), the Australian Open (1995) and the French Open (1999). He is one of the most celebrated players in the history of tennis.


Safin won his first major title in 2000, beating Pete Sampras at the US Open in three sets. He won his second Grand Slam title in Australia in 2005 and holds a total of 15 career titles. Safin and Agassi have played each other six times and are tied at three matches each. His charisma and on-court antics have made him a fan favorite. The 6'4", big-serving Russian has announced that he will retire at the end of the 2009 season.


Tickets to see Grand Slam Asheville: Agassi vs. Safin are on sale now through Ticketmaster and at the Asheville Civic Center box office. Prices range from $49 to $200. A portion of proceeds will benefit Mission Children's Hospital.


For VIP ticket packages, contact Alicia Kramer at (404) 433-1088.


Tickets purchased for August 6 will be honored on August 28, or refunds can be obtained from the original point of purchase.


"We are honored to have such tennis greats as Andre and Marat play the very first Grand Slam Asheville," said Brian Woods, the event's promoter and a local sports agent. "This will be Andre's first exhibition match against an active player since his retirement and the biggest tennis exhibition of the year."
