Henman has a great draw here, he has a good record against all the players he's lined up to meet till the final. He's beaten Roddick here before as well.

Horna is nothing on faster surfaces, so Mark can definitely win that one.

It looks good on paper, so I`ll be crossing my fingers for him and hoping that he can find some better form on the hard courts. Realistically, how well do you think he`ll do? Although the head-to-head goes in his favour, I can`t see him beating Roddick, although I`d love it if he did.

Roddick lost to Ginepri last week and Henman's beaten him before in Washington, so why not? Henman has a net game as well and can outwit the Duck.

hmmm, yes... but right now it seems anyone has a chance against mark, so hopefully he restores some cred and actually beats horna convincingly. he should be annoyed with his result last week, so that should motivate him.

This is a good, deep draw, with 8 potential quarterfinals that are simply mouth watering.

I think Roddick will win this one. His loss to Ginepri was a hiccup, and he'll be looking to recover his form here. Henman's chances are dubious at best. I'd love to see him make a good run and while his draw seems good, I don't think his head is there. He might still be feeling his disappointing result at Wimbledon. Agassi's on fire this week, but is he healthy enough to make two good runs at two consecutive tournaments?

I wish the best of luck to Roddick, Agassi, Henman, Blake, Mirnyi, Bjorkman, Grosjean, and Kiefer.

I thought the exact same thing about Mello. He should definitely win his 2nd round match and face Agassi next. An upset there would be extremely unlikely, unless Agassi is really tired from playing Los Angeles.

Henman has indeed a good draw, so I hope he lives up to his potential and makes the final, but beating Roddick isn't gonna be easy, especially the way Henman's been playing most of this year. If Kiefer can make a good run, great as well.

Good luck to Brian Baker and Bobby Reynolds. They played each other yesterday at the SFs in Lexington. Baker got tight at the 11th game of both sets and dropped serve so Bobby won 7-5, 7-5.

Agassi's pulled out. Sebastien de Chaunac takes his place.

08-01-2005, 03:14 PM
Since MD play hasn't started yet, shouldn't someone else have been promoted to a seed and the LL take that person's spot? That's what happened last week in LA when Rusedski withdrew, at about the same time as Andre withdrew from DC.


Edit, never mind, I see they did not do this :eek: De Chaunac goes right into Andre's spot and gets a bye. Why is it so different from what happened last week! Play hasn't started yet, this seems not right. Someone should've been promoted to the 17th seed and gotten that spot and De Chaunac should've been put into that spot. Now the draw is ridiculous on the bottom quarter!

Agassi Pulls Out of Legg Mason

By Liz Clarke
Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, August 1, 2005; 11:33 AM

Andre Agassi has withdrawn from the Legg Mason Tennis Classic, breaking a 16-year streak of consecutive appearances in the hard-court tournament.

Agassi informed tournament officials by fax Sunday night, shortly after defeating Gilles Muller to win his first tournament of the year, the Mercedes-Benz Cup in Los Angeles.

"Over the years I have been privileged to be a part of the Legg Mason," Agassi's letter read. "However, at this point in my career, I have to be extremely selective about the amount of matches that I play in preparation of the U.S. Open. I am sorry that I will not be there this year, but hope to return in 2006."

Agassi, 35, has been struggling with debilitating pain from periodic flare-ups of a sciatic nerve in his lower back. The nagging injury led to his first-round defeat in the French Open in May. After taking two months to recuperate, he returned to competition last week in Los Angeles and looked in dazzling form in Sunday's final, defeating Muller, 6-4, 7-5 for his 60th career title.

With eight Grand Slam titles on his resume, Agassi has his sights set on peaking for this year's U.S. Open. His withdrawal from the Legg Mason leaves top-seeded Andy Roddick as the tournament's main attraction. It also opens up the other half of the draw, where Czechoslavkia's Radek Stepanek is the highest seed remaining (fourth).

Tournament chairman Donald Dell called Agassi's withdrawal unfortunate but understandable. "We are very appreciative of his participation and loyalty to the event every year since 1990," Dell said in a statement. "After winning the Mercedes-Benz tournament in Los Angeles this weekend, Andre feels he needs to rest, and we certainly understand that his health has to be his first priority."

Apparently he didn't withdraw until around 11:00 p.m (so late that De Chaunac had already called for a car on Monday morning to take him to airport since he didn't think he had a chance of getting in).
