Agassi still hungry for Grand Slam success




ye, they gave us such pic....

Former world number one Andre Agassi says he still has the desire to win Grand Slam titles.

Agassi was on the Gold Coast today for a practice match with Australian Davis Cup representative and Australasian PGA tour cardholder, Scott Draper, at the Women's Hardcourts event.

He is currently preparing for the Australian Open and will use next week's Kooyong Classic as his final tune-up.

Agassi said he felt confident he could win the Grand Slam tournament for a fifth time.

"The second the hunger goes it's impossible, I mean I'm 34-years-old going on 35 this year, and unless I'm working harder and as eager as ever, there's no chance," he said.

"But I'm here with the intention of bringing my best stuff and winning this tournament and that's what I'm shooting for."

Agassi has won eight Grand Slam titles in total, his most recent being the 2003 Australian Open.

Re: Andre wants to win GS 2005!!!

Look what Scud said recently (see other thread),
he just respects Andre!

"You look at Andre Agassi, he won four of his five Grand Slams after the age of 29. That is very inspiring for me. That says a lot right there. Lots of people counted him out and wrote things and he came back to shut people up. By playing, not by anything else. For me that’s how I want try and do things."

i like Scud for it...

Cool Re: Andre wants to win GS 2005!!!

I misunderstand the meaning of that sentence, I thought he won total 8 GSs,and 4 of them after the age of 29.

When you say "after 29," are you including age 29 too, or do you start with 30? It's a little ambiguous...

But he won 5 of his slams after turning 29. awesome!

Forget what I said, but I really don't understand the sentence "he won four of his five Grand Slams after the age of 29. "What does "four" mean?
