I have hip problem myself and running/moving on hard surface hurt a lot more than on grass or dirt. I use dirt instead of clay since I haven't run on a clay court but on dirt road.

The hardcourts have always been more painful for Guga's hip than the clay. I think that after his surgery, he was not allowed to play on hardcourts for sometime. He began his rehabilitative play on clay courts.

A fully-fit Agassi against a fully-fit Roddick at the US Open, in the semis. I would have liked to have seen that. Unlikely now...

Having hip problems is bad enough when you're a young player. For someone Agassi's age, it really begs retirement.

AGASSI MISSING THE US OPEN....?

The AP surprisingly reported that Andre Agassi could miss the US Open. But he'll begin playing World Team Tennis next week for the Sacramento Capitals, so how that was deduced it beyond me. Andre on his hip injury: "The jury is still out on my hip and it's something I've struggled with on and off for a while now. Not playing the clay season and then going straight out to the grass compromised how it's feeling. I knew I wasn't physically in a position to be anywhere near my best. I'm hoping this time off, combined with being back on the hard courts, will be a good opportunity for me to feel a lot better. It's one step at a time." Hard courts being good for a bad hip? Not in anyone's lifetime.

Now here's a piece of info that slipped out during the Agassi conference call: His son, Jaden Gil almost sustained an injury worse than his dad's. "I try to allow my children to distract me as much as possible when I'm not training. Nothing can take your mind off Wimbledon more than seeing your boy fall down and almost break his nose." Ouch.
