1. He just had a baby! His mind will never be completely on tennis again.

2. He's been in a recent slump this last half of the year. Up until the last half of the year he was on fire. Then after Wimbledon, things started cooling down, he started losing in the first round of TMS events. Then the tough loss to Sampras. His game never looked great following that.

3. He's over thirty!!

So whats the verdict? Success or defeat in 2002?

He is already a part-time player so look to him playing even less.

Semi-retirement.

I think it all depends how he does at the Australian open, if he does well he will be fine but when he doesn`t I would not be suprised if he calls it a day soon after.

I think he will have a pretty consistent year when he plays. With baby makes three he'll be playing even less than his pared down schedule this year.

I feel he may have one last hurrah (and maybe a couple of 'shocks' along the way), but I expect him to finish in the Top 12 this time next year.

Then call it a career.

A little gossip<br />Boris Becker on Andre Agassi about Agassi's relationship with Graf:

"How Steffi and Andre are pulling it through is remarkable," Becker said. "First marriage, then the baby, then they release a picture and now all is quiet. But then Andre was crazy about Steffi for a long time, he was a little in love with her even during other relationships."

I wonder if Brooke knew that.

I think there is no question that Andre still wants to play and compete at the top. I think he still has one or two Grand Slams left in him, I think his Grand Slam next year could be similar to this years, because overall he was the most consistent player in the Grand Slams. I don't think he really cares too much about any of the rest and that includes the Masters Series events.

I think though he'll retire at some point in the year, and it will be just completely out of the blue, I wouldn't be surprised if he calls it a day after the US Open.

If he *cough* is as fit as the beginning of last year and 2, 3 years ago he can probably win Aussie Open, since EVERYONE will be rusty. But for the other grand slams, don't count on it.

clocker Brooke should have known, In one of Steffi`s newsletters from her fanclub they said that Andre was asked who the 3 most beautiful tennisplayers are and he said Steffi,Steffi, Steffi. The letter is from june 95 so it`s not something that was made up after they came officially together.

Agassi is just too talented to drop out of the top20 if he's not injured. He will play not too many tournaments, but topplayers like him can concentrate on those tournis. He'll do well...

Agassi will always be a threat for major titles wherever he is ranked.

I completely agree with whoever said that his performance next year depends on how well he starts out.

He once said: "I'll finish my career with a great win, I will not just fade out."

If Andre says such things, he means it.

I'll think he'll win the four GS next year and end his career as number 1. <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
