Agassi forever

07Sep06

There never be another tennis player, or even possibly sportsperson, that will come close to exuding the charisma and dynamic personality that Agassi did in our generation. Goodbye, Agassi, we will all miss you dearly.

The American legend fought back tears as the Arthur Ashe crowd, along with Becker, rose to applaud him

Still crying, Agassi paid a sentimental tribute to his fans.

“The scoreboard shows that I lost today, but what it doesn’t show is what I found,” he said.

“Over the last 20 years I have found loyalty, you have pulled me through on court and also in life.

“I have found inspiration – you have willed me to succeed – and I have found generosity.

“I thank you and I will take you and the memory with me for the rest of my life.”
