Graf's husband to retire after U.S. Open

Graf s Husband to retire after U.S. Open
By HOWARD FENDRICH, AP Sports Writer
June 24, 2006

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Andre Agassi will retire after this year's U.S. Open, leaving tennis after two decades during which he collected a career Grand Slam and morphed from "Image Is Everything" brashness to elder statesman.

The 36-year-old American announced his plans Saturday during a news conference at the All England Club, where Wimbledon starts Monday.

"This Wimbledon will be my last Wimbledon, and this U.S. Open will be my last tournament," Agassi said.

Andre has had a great career. I'm happy for both of them.

Andre

Although I must admit I just like him after he got married to Steffi and after Pete retired

Smile... When you do, it may change someone's day


=Good luck to my favourite players: Mirjana Lucic, Elena Dementieva, Li Na, Maria Kirilenko, Daniela Hantuchova, Vera Zvonareva, Zheng Jie, Venus Williams =

It'll be a very sad day indeed for tennis... I'd love for him to go out in style.

(btw, nice spin on the news by the thread starter, very WTA related )

I'm sure he'll enjoy life after retirement........a wife and two beautiful kids puts the icing on the retirement cake. Maybe he might take up coaching...to Jaden and Jazz!!

Venus and Serena.....2012 Grand Slam Champions!
The Greatest Ever Grand Slam Team, Does It Again!!!!

And It's Not Over Yet...Just Wait....Wait.

At least we have the benefit of knowing ahead of time, so that we can enjoy even more the talent and flare he brought to the game.

RIDE OR DIE! Down for Venus Williams

I GOT 5 ON IT!!!!! VENUS WILLIAMS 5 TIME WIMBLEDON CHAMPION!!!!!

Andre. My no. 1 favorite mens player of all time. I will miss you so much, but it's for the best, and I wish him luck in whatever he decides to do next.
