Agassi out of Paris :( :( :(

Roger Federer and Andre Agassi have pulled out of the Paris Masters, starting on Monday. Federer injured ligaments in his right foot earlier in October and is expected to start to train next week, while 1994 and 1999 champion Agassi continues to nurse a back injury.

Agassi hasn't played since reaching the U.S. Open final on 9 September.

Oh no! I have been away in London for almost two weeks and come back to this news! How unfortunate! But Andre is right to get his health back, and to come back
stronger ....

Just my opinion, but if AA doesn't play Paris...or Shanghai...and we still haven't heard an affirmative answer for Kooyong...it may very well be, "Say Good Night Gracie...the fat lady just sang."

Oh my gosh, are you guys retarded. Do you actually think he was practicing for paris and happened to injure himself just like he happened to before madrid, just like he happened to before stockholm, and the same for federer. He pulled out of paris because Lub lost and is out of reach for the championship, and because Safin probably won't play anyways (if he doesn't play in russia, he's out for the season), thus he has a spot pretty much assured.

Federer is out with injury cause he wants a break
Andre is out with injury cause he wants a break
Nadal is 19, so he still loves play as much as he can, and he wants to catch federer.
HEwitt is out with injury cause he wants a break.

Lets get real, injury withdrawls at the end of the season are cause people want a break.

The only reason roddick is playing is get his confidence back after losing at the US open. He's trying to get so momentum going.

I do agree if he qualifies and skips the Masters Champ, he very well could be calling it a year, but I don't think he will, given this years performance (US open final) etc.

I dont think it is his back the reason he is giving is personal reasons and the whole of the family was here and the kids so something I hope not too bad has happed at home in vegas. he might not make the marsters now. I just hope he dose not do a pete on us and keep us waiting.

just consider the fact that Andre withdrawls after lub loses. He knows safin is hurt, coria and davydenko qualifying, doubtful. He HAS his spot.

Andre withdrew because of "personal reasons" No injury here...

I guess we know what AA's "personal reasons" are...he and Steffi are doing a benefit in Vegas just a day before the start of the Paris Masters (article following). Emeril ALWAYS does the Agassi benefit...

You have no idea what you're talking about. Andre has already agreed to play Kooyong, he'd be insane if he stops now after a run to the final or a GS... please think before you post :rolleyes: :o

i do think before i post, please dont assume to know me... we are all andre's fan here...
i know he agreed to play in kooyong, but his recent pull outs of tournaments surely means something is not right either in his body or personal life...

but i do wish to see him play again, i know he got a lot more to offer and it's insane to stop now....

I'm sure he will play again. This time of year recently Andre has a tradition of pulling out of the indoor season to rest for the following year. In 2003 he didn't play a tournament between US Open and TMC and still reached the final at Houston! Last year he only played Madrid and Stockholm after US Open. His body can play but he needs to pick the right places. Does he really want to throw his body around in an International Series event in Sweeden?? I think he's saving himself fot TMC Shanghai (maybe it will be like Roland Garros 2004 when he had no Match Practice). Lets wait and see!!!
