Agassi denies imminent retirement
Last season had been seen by many as Agassi's last
Andre Agassi has ruled out speculation he was set for imminent retirement after revealing he will compete at next month's Kooyong Classic in Australia.
The 2005 season had been seen by many as the 35-year-old's last in the sport.
But he will instead make his ninth appearance at the invitational tournament from January 11-14 - his usual build-up to the Australian Open.
"We at Kooyong will be thrilled to see him in action again," said Kooyong tournament director Colin Stubbs.
"It will be business as usual for him."
Agassi, who turns 36 in April, will line up at the event with world number one Roger Federer, Andy Roddick and Masters Cup winner David Nalbandian among others.
