I know that many forum members here are not tennis fans. I am not a huge tennis fan but I watch the occasional match. Andre Agassi played his last game today as a professional athlete. He won 8 grand slam events. Thats like winning 8 six or seven star events in badminton. During his career he won 17 titles over a 14 year period (his career even longer!)! His longevity and dedication to the sport is admirable any way you look at it. His final speech to the crowd was touching telling the crowd that they let him stand on their shoulders to reach his dreams. Andre Agassi grew into one of the class acts in modern sports.

andre A. is an amazing player. He is shorter than almost all of his opponents, less muscular too and yet he whip out power shots and can retrieve shots like a tall player. A consistent player too.

thats why i love andre, he got to old and couldnt reach the ball as fast as he used to, so he gave the opponent more trouble by hitting harder, taking more chances, punching the serve right back, going for a big serve, his serve and service retern were one of the best in the tour b4 he retired

Agassi has my respect, he worked so hard for those grand slams. Playing at the age of 17, that's really crazy >.<
I wish I had a career at that age. Too bad I am too old to start anything.

are you sure?
i thought it was 60 titles in total ...
i can't believe that someone who won 8 grand slams only won 17 titles ...
