Agassi wants one more year

[B]Agassi wants one more year

Evergreen tennis star Andre Agassi says his US Open final defeat to Roger Federer has motivated him to play at least one more year on the circuit.

Agassi, 35, who has not played since the loss in September but is making his comeback at the Masters Cup in Shanghai, said he wanted another crack at glory next year.

"I want another chance, that's the way it is. It brings out my motivation to do things I don't even think I'm capable of doing," said the third seed, who will open his campaign against Russia's Nikolay Davydenko on Monday.

I've been that way for a long time."

Agassi, the oldest player in China by eight years, said his two-month lay-off had been designed to keep him fit for the $US4.45 million Masters Cup, and for another season of professional tennis.

"I want to keep doing this so I have to choose my poison. Not playing is not always easy and it's not always a great decision in the short-term but my intention is to do this for another year," he said.

He said he did not know if he would retire after next season.

Agassi is the oldest player at the season finale since Jimmy Connors in 1987. He has made a record 13 appearances and beat Stefan Edberg for his only title in 1990.
