I went to bad sad last night, as Andre Agassi was down two sets to none in his quarterfinal against James Blake.

I woke up to this.

3-6, 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, 7-6 (6)

I should add that Agassi's opponent was difficult to root against. James Blake is an African American (definitely underepresented in this sport) who has had some pretty harsh life events go down in the past year or so, including breaking his neck (!) and the death of his father. Blake is a rising star, and definitely one to keep on eye on.

Agassi faces an unranked Robby Ginepri in the semis, and it's unclear if that's an easy road or not. The semis in a Grand Slam are never an easy thing, and Ginepri is on a run that so far has knocked off three seeded players, including Guillermo Coria, the sixth-ranked player in the world.

Still, how can you not be psyched for the 35-year old Agassi?

I am sooooo tempted to delete that.
