Proust Questionnaire
Andre Agassi


As a brash young upstart, he stretched the limits of tennis etiquette.
Yet his decade-long rivalry with Pete Sampras and eight Grand Slam
victories would establish him as one of the greatest to ever roam the
baseline. Here, the author of the memoir Open–out this month–muses
on family, Federer, and finding his true calling.

Andre Agassi e Pete Sampras já lideraram o ranking mundial


Dois norte-americanos que já lideraram o ranking da ATP, Andre Agassi e Pete Sampras, participarão de um jogo exibição no Brasil em maio. A turnê de despedida de ambos foi intitulada "Farewell Tour" e também passará por Porto Rico e Colômbia.

Após encerrar a carreira, os dois tenistas trocaram farpas, principalmente quando Agassi lançou uma autobiografia, onde assumiu o uso de drogas e fez críticas a Sampras (entre outras coisas disse que seu adversário era dotado de "espetacular falta de inspiração"), que rebateu e criou alguma polêmica.

Re: More News

Not sure if any of you are following the Agassi twitter feed. (twitter@agassiandre)
At the start there were a few notes from him, but now it's a person in his office posting for sure. Alas. However they are doing a great job of posting and today they posted a link to a short video of SMG and Agassi hitting.
