Agassi Comments on
Agassi and Lance Armstrong used to sit happily together on the board of
Athletes For Hope, a body designed to inspire, empower, commit to a
better life for those less fortunate by the use of sport. Now Armstrong
stands a disgraced figure after admitting guilt to doping allegations
and Agassi admitted he was as dismayed as anyone to hear the admission
of the multiple Tour de France champion.
Suggests Five-Set Matches Are Too Long
man who took five sets and two days - London rain intervened - to win
his career-highlight Wimbledon title a dozen years ago says now that
five sets are too many for today's tennis. Croatian Goran Ivanisevic,
playing in the Legends event at the Australian Open, believes that
tiebreakers are the key to keeping match times under control.
Need Leader to ‘Galvanize Merits of What They are Looking For
Agassi was never a leader on the ATP Players Council during his 19-year
career, but the eight-time Grand Slam champion was usually outspoken on
the issues. While at the Australian Open to promote Jacob’s Creek wine,
Agassi said that if the current male players want to make headway with
the Grand Slams over prize money that they need to be reasonable and
find someone who can properly communicate their demands.
