i'm betting he'll win the LA tournament.. what better than to go out on top?
this is probably about as close to the "top" as he'll get from now on

he will win one of the Masters, and probably on US OPEN he can retire.

Oh hell no. Let Andre decided when he wants to retire. It's his life.

He'll make it to the semifinals/finals of the US Open. It wouldn't do his career any justice to retire prior to the biggest slam of the year.

Why would he do that? If he is healthy, he cab beat anybody on a hardcourt other than Federer. If he is healthy going into the USO, nobody will want to see him on their side of the draw. The chances are that he will never win another big title again but that is the way 99.9% of players leave the game. Sampras was a very unusual exception. Borg was an unusual exception going away after a year in which he made the finals in all 3 Grand Slams that he played in winning RG.

he'll definitely still go on to play the us open... he's still a big threat on hardcourts... he should retire only when he wants to retire...

He keeps demonstrating that he's still hitting the ball great when he's healthy. And if he can keep getting the cortisone shots then I don't see why he should retire now.

Of course no, he's ranked sixth in the world, hits the ball as cleanly as ever and responds well to his injections, so it's all good.

No, I want him to carry on. It'll be so wierd when he retires, like when Sampras retired!

hell no, he has to retire when he feels his time has come, and don't worry only he knows best and he'll make a good decision

if Agassi wins here and then goes far in the USO, he could be a threat for Masters Cup qualification, he would retire after that event if he plays it.

YES, he should have a good dinner and retire about 10pm, because tomorrow he has to get up early for his flight to Washington.

NO and he will make the decision himself.

Well... he said in the after match ceremony that he's going to be back on LA next year:shrug:

sol

NO and he will make the decision himself.

Agreed!

Go Andre! :rocker2:

Exact. IMO, Baldy still has the goods to do great things at the biggest stages, Masters or Slams. Provided he's fit and healthy, he will probably continue to play for a nice period, he knows he can win big titles. Hadn't he been stopped by Federer at the US Open 04, Australian Open, Dubai and Miami this year, I'm sure his title #60 would have come in greater style.

Other than Federer, I can only think of Safin as players who're capable to beat an in-form Agassi on a good day on hardcourts.

No, no, and no.

Unless his body is no longer able to keep him on the court, I just don't see him going away. Maybe that's because I just don't want him to...but I guess that's not really for any of us to decide. :scratch:

Had Andre not had any back problems. Would he even be considering retirement?

Fedex
08-01-2005, 10:05 AM
I would think if Agassi is going to retire at all this year, it would be after the US Open

Experimentee
08-01-2005, 01:08 PM
Yeah because beating Gilles Muller has to be one of his biggest achievements, one that is fitting to cap off his long and illustrious career. Why bother even playing the US Open when he has already tasted glory like this?

Gigan
08-01-2005, 05:17 PM
there is good news 4 you, Andre's friends:
today Andre promissed that will play in Legg Mason
Tennis Classic in August of 2006...

Now you can relax :)

Congrats to Andre for a surprise title. :) And I hope this is the start of a good stretch of tennis from Agassi culminating with a second week appearance at the 2005 U.S. Open.

Well, i like Andre's talent a lot really, and it'll be missed ..but it 'll be happening sooner or later ..so the timing of making such a desicion and announcing it , is an important and yet a difficult thing, i think when a person leaves while he 'll be missed (u can say this gives a better memory of him) than if he takes the desicion the time he won't be able to achieve more ..or even achieve it with lots of difficulty

and in my humble opinion, i think Agassi might be thinking about retirement after this year's US ..

right, i think he still have the drive to play, if his body can withstand the rigours, then we will see more of him.....

those other atp players still need to learn a thing or two...

Andre's talent??the blokes a freak n his talent is more under rated under the naked eye in my opinion!!!!just a very smart thinkin player who was blessed wit a racket in his hand!!!!Andre the great :worship: :worship: :worship:

He'll go another 2 yrs,still got plenty to offer especially what i witness against Joachim Johansson in AUST OPEN!!!only lost to the hottest player the FED!!!!

I believe Agassi is capable of winning one more grand slam n maybe if he does win one more that could be the icing for his retirement!!!who knows whats the odds for the great man in 2005 U.S OPEN n what his odds!!!!if he gets in the final against hopefully no the FED but most likely if they dont meet b4 hand!!!the U.S crowd will go ballistic n may carry him over,like Sampras!!!!

i look to see him playing, he is great sportman, with a good behaviour.
So as long as he is happy in his sport, and he has good results , winning tournements and not just loosing in first rounds, why shouldn't he play????
I see no reason for retirement

noooooo. I still have greater hope and ambitions for Andre to achieve before he puts down his racket. ;):p He's still playing way too well to call it a day. :) I know he wants to pass Pete up in number of titles...:angel:

Connors could still play at 39, Andre has a long ways left yet! :cool:
