Re: What is Andre's upcoming schedule?

He'll go to Houston (April 18-24), take a week off and then play the back-to-back Masters Series events at Rome (May 2-8) and Hamburg (May 9-15). That gives him three tournaments, which should be adequate match play, while still giving himself at least seven days of rest before the start of the French.

Re: What is Andre's upcoming schedule?

I don't think he will play Hamburg depends on the results in Rome.

Agassi learns to keep busy

Ten months after one of the worst scheduling decisions of his 18-year career, Andre Agassi has rethought his attack on the clay-court season and will go after the French Open this year more aggressively than he has since 2001.

He'll go to Houston (April 18-24), take a week off and then play the back-to-back Masters Series events at Rome (May 2-8) and Hamburg (May 9-15). That gives him three tournaments, which should be adequate match play, while still giving himself at least seven days of rest before the start of the French.

This will be one more event than he played in 2002 and 2003 and a major departure from the crazy plan he put together in 2004, when he decided to take off almost the entire spring and play the smaller tournament at St. Poelten, Austria, one week before Roland Garros.

The idea was to work hard off court, get some matches in Austria and arrive in Paris with fresh legs and grooved strokes.

It was a lesson in humility that clay has a way of visiting on every player.

Agassi lost in the first round at St. Poelten to doubles specialist Nenad Zimonjic and walked into the French almost cold turkey, where he was beaten in straight sets by a French qualifier, Jerome Haehnel, who was ranked No. 271 and playing his first ATP level match.

Lesson learned.

"It was a terrible call I made. I mean, I was beside myself," Agassi said. "I'm not the kind of player that does well without matches. I can do well without practice. I can't do well without matches. I need to get relaxed out there and remind myself how hard I work to make it seem easy at times.

"It's not easy for me to remember that when I've been away for six weeks."


Twenty-four days before his 35th birthday, Agassi remains one of the phenomena of sport. There is no more grueling Grand Slam than the French, which is, as much as anything, a test of endurance.

But Agassi isn't worried about the effect a stepped-up clay schedule will have on his legs.

"My legs are treating me well right now," he said. "I don't have an issue with that. My back is better. My hip, as a result of that nerve they found, is better.

"I got it treated. I'm able to lunge, to sprint to balls and recover and force myself to play to my standard. That's a good sign. So I'm not worried about my legs. I'd be more worried about what I need mentally right now just to feel prepared."


The clay court season began in Valencia, Spain, on Monday, and Rafael Nadal, who lost a five-set, 3-hour and 47-minute final to Roger Federer at Key Biscayne, is not looking for time off. He'll play Juan Carlos Ferrero, the 2003 French winner, in the first round.

What Nadal has shown this year, and especially at Key Biscayne (even though it's a hardcourt tournament), is that he rates the early favorite's role to win the French.

This is going to be an extremely competitive clay court season with a dozen key players looking for the mental edge that comes with a title in a lead-up tournament, and all of them trying to make sure they play enough but not too much.

If I had to line up the five top clay court players right now, it would be, in order, Nadal, Agassi, Federer, Guillermo Coria and Juan Carlos Ferrero.

Why is Coria, last year's runner-up, fourth on the list? Maybe he'll magically transform himself now that he's on clay, but he hasn't played at an elite level since June.

Why is Federer third, when he's gone out in the first round twice and third round once in the last three seasons? Because we all know he has the game to win on clay and he couldn't possibly have a higher confidence level than he does now.

Why is Ferrero on that list? His game is coming. He showed at Key Biscayne that he's not far off in his return for injury. The speed is there, but he needs the consistency that he will get with match play.

And where is Gaston Gaudio, last year's accidental French Open winner, and Carlos Moya, David Nalbandian and Lleyton Hewitt? Close behind but not top five.

Nadal will turn 19 on June 3, the day of the men's semifinals in Paris. I think his celebration, and another one on June 5, will take place on the red clay at Roland Garros.

Re: What is Andre's upcoming schedule?

No word on Agassi, Roddick for RCA

By Mark Ambrogi
mark.ambrogi@indystar.com
April 11, 2005


RCA Championships tournament director Rob MacGill is still awaiting decisions from his two top targets, two-time defending event champion Andy Roddick and Andre Agassi.

Yet MacGill figures the Indianapolis tourney's early commitments give it a nice blend.

Among the nine announced commitments are four top U.S. players, Taylor Dent, James Blake, Robby Ginepri and Vince Spadea. Dent is having the best season of the group, currently ranked No. 11 in the ATP points race.

Other players entering the July 18-24 tournament are 2002 RCA champ Greg Rusedski and the past two RCA runners-up, Paradorn Srichaphan (2003) and Nicolas Kiefer (2004).

Also headed for Indianapolis are Tommy Haas and Xavier Malisse. Haas has the highest entry ranking of the committed players at No. 16. Third-ranked Roddick had planned to play in the Davis Cup quarterfinals July 15-17. But Croatia upset the Americans in early March.

"That (loss) gives us the opportunity to continue our dialogue with him, and we're doing everything we can to get him to review his scheduling," MacGill said.

The entry deadline is in June. Agassi committed to Indianapolis last summer but withdrew because of a hip injury.

"Andre has made it clear to everyone that he's going to let things settle for the first clay court season and then he'll make some decisions in mid- to late May as far as his schedule in the hardcourt season," MacGill said.

MacGill said the Davis Cup quarterfinals have hampered his ability to secure commitments from several players, including Croatia's Ivan Ljubicic and Mario Ancic.

Clay court tournaments in Stuttgart, Germany, and The Netherlands will be held the same week as the RCAs.

Top-ranked Roger Federer is a long shot for Indianapolis because he will play in a tournament in his native Switzerland right after Wimbledon.

MacGill is hopeful promising 15-year-old American Donald Young will accept a wild card.

Call Star reporter Mark Ambrogi at (317) 444-2806.
