Andre Agassi pulled out of his Kooyong Classic match against Andy Roddick on Thursday because of a hip injury. ``My hip was cramping, and I just could not continue,'' said Agassi, down 6-5 in the first set when he walked to the net and shook hands with his fellow American. The four-time Australian Open champion appeared to favor his hip while serving in the 10th game, and called a trainer.
