Is Agassi done now or can he still win another slam?

Dont accuse me of being a hater cos i love the guy. But to be honest in the 2nd half of the yr i kinda think he has been slowing down a bit. I noticed it at Wimbeldon and the US open esp. So do ya reckon he is finished winning slams or can he get another. I really hope he can get one more to the collection although his legend is already secure.

If he doesnt win Australia next year he is done.

It's going to be tough for Andre. I think at his age everything can go downhill in a big hurry. So much of it depends on how much he wants it.

Obviously he can still win another Grand Slam, although I don't think he will, but not for the reason of his age...

Andre's done enough throughout his career so that I can't say NEVER but I don't think I see it happening, not even in Australia (though if it does, I think that's where it will happen, where he is at his freshest and comfortable)

Andre always seems to go through this cycle. He comes out at the beginning of the year in Australia on fire, better than anyone else. And then he slows down a little in the summer and fall, and the other players pick it up then.

So I guess the question is whether he will go through this cycle again!

In 2002 Hewitt's game inspired Andre to try to get faster and move better, which he seemed to do in Australia. Now after that beating by Federer in the Masters Cup final, I wonder if Andre will be motivated to make any more improvements/adjustments inspired by Roger!

Well he said he would! Yashirobai i dont get my u think he will win another slam if its nothing to with his age :confused: . Tennis ability never goes away. Well i'm hoping he can defend his crown down in oz now but more i wanna see him RG more cos that imo in the scene of his greatest achievement.

Of course he can win another. He's my bet to win the AO next year actually.

At the Masters Cup he showed he was still better than the best, if you put the final match aside, he was as good as anyone there. He could even have beaten Federer in the RR as he had match points. That was all with no match play beforehand.

And dont forget how he wiped out the opposition at last years AO, hardly dropping a game let alone a set. He hasnt declined that much in only one year.

I dont think he played bad at Wimbledon and the US Open. At Wimbledon he lost to the eventual finalist who only slightly outplayed him, it was a very high quality match that either player could have won. At the US Open Ferrero was just on fire, he was too good. I think if Andre had beaten Ferrero that day he would have beaten Roddick too. Last year I think the only Slam where he didnt play well was RG.

I also think Andre can win another one... and obviously his best chances are at the AO... I also think he'll do well at the hardcourt masters series throughout the year!

Don't think anyone can ever write off someone as good as Agassi, - even though I'm not a particular fan myself I think everyone appreciates his talent - but I don't think he has another Slam in him now. Yes, OK, he reached the Final at Houston, but that was a week of 3-set matches, - a Slam is two weeks of potential 5-setters, and no man in their 30's (however fit and strong), will find that easy against people 10 and 12 years younger.

With another great draw, high bouncing hard court, and injured/exhausted opponents, why not?

The one worry i have is that if he plays a couple of 5 set matches how is he gonna respond? Thats the only concern. Or maybe he could just destroy the field like last yr. ;)

With a reasonable draw, especially in AO, I don't see why he can't.

He should have plenty of time to recover between matches, and that should make a big difference. I'd give Agassi at least as good a chance of winning as the three players above him, if not better.

i can see him winning AO. hes always on fire at the beginning of the year. don't think he has any chance at the FO maybe wimbledon and USO if he has a good summer but AO is definitely his best bet. i think the other players may have cottoned on to how much work he puts in in the off season and do the same this year so that may scupper his plans. hopefully if steffi seats in the same seat again he'll win again. well my fingers are crossed anyway!

a fair win is appropriate
i'd rather see a new AO winner

I don't see why Andre can't win another Slam in his career. I think he has a better chance of winning a Grand Slam than one of the 64-player Tennis Masters Series events. I think he has a great chance to win the Aussie again and he could also pull a Pete and win the US Open next year.

What are you hinting at here?

Andre's draw did clear out last year, but that's because players like Ferrero were busy losing to players like Ferreira. And Andre was in spectacular form, and totally "deserved" that win. He only lost one set. In the second round he only lost one game, lol.

On another note, I think it will be interesting if Andre meets Lleyton at the AO. That would be an exciting situation.

I think Heya was hinting at some other player that he/she much prefers to win the AO. ;)

He faced less injured/exhausted players to win Australia than Roddick did the uso. Deatils ;)

With only one title this year, I think this is the worse yearly performance since his comeback. It's unlikely he'll do damages in the slams anymore...unfortunately. So yes, he is done.

i can picture Andre winning a another slam but i don't think so unless Roger is injured

If fed and Nadal are out, who could be a better pick. On hardcourt, that is.

I expect 2006 to be his last year. It must be pretty painful for him just to keep going. One more slam? Possible but not likely. Would be nice.
