Agassi considering Cahill as coach

February 7, 2002

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Tennis star Andre Agassi is considering Australian Darren Cahill as his next coach after parting company with longtime coach Brad Gilbert a week ago.

Cahill split with world No. 1 tennis player Lleyton Hewitt in December.

But Agassi is holding off on selecting a coach until he is completely healthy, a spokesman said.

Agassi, 31, withdrew from last month's Australian Open with a wrist complaint.

``He is not prepared to make a coaching decision until he has been cleared by his doctor to play,'' Agassi spokesman Todd Wilson told The Associated Press on Thursday. ``However, he does appreciate Darren's work as a coach and there is a strong likelihood that Darren will be his coach.''

With Gilbert, Agassi won six Grand Slam titles, a gold medal at the 1996 Olympics and held the No. 1 ranking in the world at the end of 1999. Agassi is the only man to have won all four Grand Slam titles as well as an Olympic gold medal.

Interesting indeed! Good to hear that Cahill might be back to work after being dumped in December though :)
