Tennis: September 2006 Archives



Andre Agassi concluded his career with a four-set loss on Sunday.

The Fynal Cut has his emotional parting words.

Deadspin has a picture of fellow American James Blake's tribute to Andre: he wore Agassi's old pink get-up from the mullet days (though if you check out the original, fuller-length picture here, you'll see that he wimped out on sporting the pink biker shorts).

Speaking of Blake, he's pretty much The American to Root For now. He's ranked 9th in the world, fifth in this year's Open, and he played a memorable match against Andre in this same even last year. Actually, Blake's role wasn't so memorable, as he choked, but it was Agassi's last truly great match, and Blake has been on the rise since.
