Nuggets from Andre Agassi's swansong
Andre Agassi, when it all began. After 21 years of thrills and trophies, its so long!
"The scoreboard says I have lost but what it doesn't say is what I have found... you have given me your shoulders to stand on to reach for my dreams. In my last 21 years I have found you and will take the memory of you for the rest of my life."
In his final match in the US Open against B. Becker of Germany, not Boris but Benjamin, Agassi played an agonising match with back pain.
A tearful Agassi thanked everydody afterwards, giving an oncourt retirement speech that won him more hearts and fans.
Adios Andre Agassi.
