Andre enters Stockholm!!!!!!!

Andre Agassi has entered the if...Stockholm Open played from the 10th to the 16th October on Indoor Hard. Agassi reached last years final, losing to Thomas Johansson in three sets. It will be Agassi's first tournament loss since losing to Roger Federer in the final of the US Open.

Here is the news from the tournament website:

http://www.stockholmopen.se/t3.asp?p=39340&x=1&a=179294

Agassi back in Stockholm
The american super star, Andre Agassi, will return to the capital of Sweden and has signed up for the if... Stockholm Open. Agassi lost against Thomas Johansson in an epic final last year in Stockholm.


- It is nice to welcome Agassi and many other good players back to Stockholm, said Per Hjertquist, the Tournament Director of the if... Stockholm Open.

Many excellent competitors will play in the tournament this year and the cut off is as low as 61. French teen sensations, Richard Gasquet and Gael Monfils, will challenge Agassi as well as the former champion, Paradorn Srichaphan and the Olympic gold medallist, Nicolas Massu.

Thomas Johansson and Robin Soderling are the only Swedes yet to qualify for the main draw. Johansson is the reigning champion after defeating Agassi in the final set tiebreaker last year. Soderling had his breakthrough in Stockholm two yars ago when the young baseliner reached the final.

However, the in form home favourite, Jonas Bjorkman, did not make the cut. The experienced Swede will have to hope for one of three wildcards to the tournament.

Re: Andre enters Stockholm!!!!!!!

He will win it and also qualify for the Masters Cup. He is playing at a very high level.
Should have beaten Feds at the Open. Got mentally tired after a series of 5 setters.

Andre , enjoy your European holiday.

Re: Andre enters Stockholm!!!!!!!

Andre is evidently very healthy physically. He is just mentally drained after those tough matches at the Open. A few weeks rest will get him mentally charged for the European Indoor Season. He is scheduled to play Stockholm, Madrid and Paris. His cortisone injection which he had after LA is working fine still. Another one is planned in December just before Australia 2006. Gil Raes spoke to BBC Radio Five Live yesterday.
