    Just finished watching the US Open 2nd round replay on CBS between Agassi and Baghdatis. Got to be one of the greatest matches in tennis history!

    Two great athletes. Agassi, 36 and w/a bad back, playing his heart out in a 4 hr match. Baghdatis, coming back after being down the first 2 sets to win the next 2, then fighting painful leg cramps in the last set, including almost winning one game that went to a 9th deuce! Wowsa!

    Agassi should have called it quits after last years final with Federer - where he played very well. He's the greatest shotmaker ever. I have tickets to the open on Sunday - hopefully I see him play if its not raining. I guess he's looking for the Sampras like fairy tale ending of going out with a grand slam title.
    He's back has been killing him all year and now he's taking dangerous injections.;_y...4v7YF?slug=ap-usopen-agassi&prov=ap&type=lgns
  3. I guess he's looked at the cost benifit, but he's such a health freak it is surprising.
  4. Agassi is great. You could tell in the first set that he was having serious problems, more so than his last two matches. But he still put on a good show.

    Trader-X made a good post about Agassi:
