Agassi Out

September 4th, 2006 · No Comments · Tennis

Andre Agassi’s long and very successful career is now over. He played his final match on Sunday, September 3, 2006, losing to Benjamin Becker in four sets in the third round of the U.S. Open. He is 36 years old, having turned professional at aged 16. I must say that I was not too impressed with him early in his career – he seemed like a spoilt brat. This may have been a result of his missed childhood as he was drilled as a tennis player from an early age. He is reaping the rewards now, and over time he has mellowed to be a very respected player around the world. His bald head will be sadly missed on the tennis court. Now we wait for the day the super player children that he and his wife Steffi Graf have produced to make it to the court.
