Just one more slam, says Andre

Just one more slam, says Agassi

GOLD COAST, Australia (AFP) - Andre Agassi says he wants one more grand slam title before he ends his glittering tennis career.

The 34-year-old American, who is only the fifth player to win all four grand slam titles, is here to have a crack at his fifth Australian Open (news - web sites) title and a ninth grand slam win later this month.

Agassi made a surprise centre court appearance at the Gold Coast WTA event here Thursday where he played Australian Scott Draper in an exhibition match.

The match came about after Russian top seed Nadia Petrova withdrew from her quarter-final with an injury against Italy's Silvia Farina Elia.

Agassi looked sharp and fit as he unveiled a more muscular physique much to the delight of the crowd.

"The second the hunger goes it's impossible (to compete)," he told the crowd.

"I'm 34 years old, going on 35 this year, and unless I'm working harder and am as eager as ever there's no chance.

"But I'm here with the intention of bringing my best and winning (the Australian Open) and that's what I'm shooting for."

Agassi has a tough task on the current men's tour against much younger rivals, Roger Federer, Andy Roddick and Lleyton Hewitt.

The Australian Open gets underway in Melbourne on January 17.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
