thanks for the article, batz


Andre will snort a line of chalk right off his award and than offer up a sex tape of him and Graf to spectators.

A no brainer. Well deserved. One of the top 5 players of all time without a doubt.

Sampras is already in. Hope he gives Agassi some "tips."

Sorry but top 15 is more realistic.

Well deserved, it was a matter of time before he got inducted.

Yeah, that's more in the realm of Agassi's true position. Moreover, his "longevity" (which some use to support claims of AA being great) was only due to his ******* away the first half of his career, so he did not go full-on through the physical ringer like his former opponents.

Apart from 1993 and 1997, Agassi finished every year between 1988-2005 as a top 10 player.

I think in 94-95 was when he got really totally serious about his tennis for the first time. Then after losing the U.S Open final to Sampras that year he had a hard time recovering from that and it set him back awhile longer.

One of my 3 alltime favourites, the other 2 being Edberg and Federer.

Why would a drug user who intentionally lied to the ATP be in the International Hall of Fame? What message does this send to the kids at "Agassi Prep" academy?

Wow, what a surprise! I never in my wildest dreams thought Agassi would ever come remotely close to being inducted into the Hall of Fame. I mean his career really fell short compared to the real all-time greats like Michael Chang's. :shock: :lol: LOL j/k

It is not about someone who went through bad times like poverty or bad health. It is about someone who took drugs and lied to the governing body of his profession.

In any case, his tennis achievements are sufficient for entry and far surpass others. Federer, for example, does not have a Golden Career Slam.

Every athlete lies about drugs. Look at Nadal.
