Should Agassi call it a day?

Agassi is now really struggling, should he call it a day? Is it too late now for him to get anything out of this season? Is age catching up with him or is he just too committed to family to train properly now?

Does anybody think he can do one last surge like Pete at the US Open 2002?

Never count out a true champion, he is just short of match practice...

Why the hell do you call him "Homo Agassi?" Are you trying to say he's gay?

If he retires at the end of the year I don't think it will surprise anyone. I hope he will play through the US Open at least.

agassi is playing so bad that I think Wayne Ferreira could beat him.

Nah I dont think he should call it a day yet - best to wait until the end of the season to decide. I dont think there is any disgrace in losing to Andreev anyway - he is a star in the making!

:lol:

No that could never happen. Wayne would break his leg or something while serving for the match. ;)

I thought he'd decided to go for 1600 tour wins? :)

Please no!!!!!!! :lol:

I hope he does

So if they ever bring out tennis action figures in the future and Agassi is still around, the Agassi figure would come complete with 'cantankerous fist shaking' action and voice chip soundbytes such as "back in my day", and "you kids thesedays"

No, he should make a come back. He has already did that once.

Jimmy Connors played till he was nearing 40 or so - I'm not sure, any one knows??

Dear Mr. Baldy

I don't think you know me, which is fine considering we never met. I have been following your career for a long time, ups and downs included. I too remember that emotional win in RG against Medvedev and the great games against Pete and in the AO and you becoming the oldest ever #1.

Those were good days, but they now seem long gone. The past 6 months you seem to have lost your motivation and love for the game. This is very understandble, especially coming from someone who also has recently became a proud father. Family comes before everything and I presume that spending more time with your wife and kid are much more important to you than checking out Igor Andreev's career.

So isn't it time to call it a day? Or are you looking to do a "one final Pete move" in Wimbledon this year? I know, I know, it's not fair to reach any far-fetched conclusions based on the past 217 games that you lost (when was the last time you won a game? March was it?). Maybe it is just another one of any player's slumps. But in this day and age this could be quite a long slump, don't you think?

Still AA, I want you to know that although I never was the greatest fan of you ever, I always admired your spirit and love for the game. But if all this has now dissapeared... well you know what I mean.

Sincerely

Another aging father

Not now but he might retire maybe after the US Open - to end it in a favourite tournament of his and the slam of the united states. Very appropriate if he does, but even if he'll turn things around and have his normally good results, he's still going to retire after the US Open.

When Sampras went through the same rough patch everyone was saying he should retire & he went on to win the US. Hopefully Agassi will do the same:)
