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.

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

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 :p)

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!! :hearts:

Aww... this is very sad. At least he had a very good career.

I hope he plays WTT with Steffi.

He'll be missed, but it's a good thing for him to retire. The longer he continues on the tour sub-par, the more damage to his legacy.
