As long as Agassihole continues to feel inadequate compared to Sampras, I think he will continue to play. 40 more matches is just another year for him anyway, so . . .

I think Pete & Kafel will retire soon, and Chang is definitely retiring this year (last I heard). I don't think Goran will play 85 more matches before Agassi plays 40.

Agassi will play 40 next year alone if he doesn't retire.

Pete should go out a winner IMO, and won't make it because he'll retire.

Same with Kafel (though he'll hopefully go out a winner by winning the Davis Cup. Otherwise, anything is possible).

If Russia wins DC Finals, Zhenya might retire so I'm checking him off. Pete (although he is only 20 matches short)I think, will be retiring very soon. So I would have to say it's Andre.

Andre is 19 matches short.. Sampras is still 16 matches short. Chang - 37. Goran - 85. Kafelnikov - 130..

The race is on between Pete and Andre. From now on they play pretty much similar schedule, and by French Open time we will likely have the winner. Odds are it will be Andre.. But you never know..

this guy...


and that's absolutely fine with me...:kiss: :kiss:

having beaten Andre at the USO last year -- the sweetest victory he could have asked for outside of winning yet another Wimby -- i don't think the 'Droid really wants to ever touch a racket again.

Agassi. It seems that he is more willing to play lesser tournaments than Sampras.

what lesser tournies is Andre playing?? :confused:

and do you want me to remind you of the string of basement tournies that the 'Droid desperately chased down all over Europe just so that he could get the points to end as #1 for the 6th year in a row? puh-lease...:rolleyes: :rolleyes:
