Retiring Agassi has plenty of fans in NYC but...
Andre Agassi has plenty of fans but, according to many members of the jet set making their way to the renaming of the USTA Tennis Center last night, the U.S Open belongs to Roger Federer.
"He (Roger) is one of the greatest tennis players ever," said New York City dealmaker and "Apprentice" star Donald Trump, who was with his wife, Melania Knauss. "I'm a good friend of Pete Sampras," he added, referring to the former No. 1 tennis player. "And even he said that."
Anna Wintour, the diminutive editor of Vogue magazine, agreed. Wintour, sporting her trademark bob and dark glasses, shouted out Federer's name as her favorite and then implied no others were worthy of consideration by giving a dismissive flick of her hand. The comments came as members of the exclusive group headed into the tennis center, which was renamed for Billie Jean King, who spearheaded the women's movement in the game. King would not name her favorite - "You shouldn't ask me that," she chided - and later remarked that she was "humble and grateful" about the tribute.
