Agassi back in Stockholm
The american super star, Andre Agassi, will return to the capital of Sweden and has signed up for the if... Stockholm Open. Agassi lost against Thomas Johansson in an epic final last year in Stockholm.


- It is nice to welcome Agassi and many other good players back to Stockholm, said Per Hjertquist, the Tournament Director of the if... Stockholm Open.

Many excellent competitors will play in the tournament this year and the cut off is as low as 61. French teen sensations, Richard Gasquet and Gael Monfils, will challenge Agassi as well as the former champion, Paradorn Srichaphan and the Olympic gold medallist, Nicolas Massu.

As I previously confirmed, Andre will play in Sweeden. Steffi is playing Gabriella Sabatini in an exhibition in Germany. Andre is fired up to play the European indoor season!

I think that Andre does intend to play Stockholm, definitely if Steffi is in Europe playing Sabatini too. He didn't automatically get entered into Stockholm, so it must have been out of a desire to play here. If he is fit, he will play. Last year he expressed how beautiful the city was and the people, so he will be back! Maybe even 2006 too, as he now has confirmed he will play next year. I got an e-mail from the tournament director regarding television coverage:

"]"The matches will not be sent on Eurosports. The rights belongs to IEC in sports http://www.iec.se/"

Does anyone know if UK viewers will be able to watch any action from Stockholm?

Back injury rules Agassi out of Stockholm

Fri Sep 30, 9:42 AM ET



STOCKHOLM (AFP) - US Open finalist Andre Agassi has pulled out of next month's Stockholm Open because of an injured back and might be unable to play again this year, organisers said.

"I was looking forward to go even further this year. My family enjoyed the stay last year and Stockholm is a very nice city," the 35-year-old Agassi, beaten by Thomas Johansson in last year's final, said.

The tournament is from October 10 to 16.
