Although it's great to see Andre coming back, don't expect him to do much initially. He rides on rhythm and momentum and never seems to play well after long lay offs. Also, grass isn't really a rhythm surface--if you've got a big serve it is, but if you're a baseliner like Andre, nope.

Good luck to him!

Hopefully we'll see him and Federer play before the year ends. They're matchups are so fun to watch--great hitting and tactical. What more can you ask for?

I actually think Agassi is one of those guys who doesn't need that much match play. He came back last year after months of not playing and ended up blazing through the hardcourt season. 1 title and 2 finals, both losses to Fed/Nadal. As long as he doesn't have any nagging pains while he's on court, he'll do great things.

Good luck, but too old. Can beat anyone for one day. Can't sustain it over 7 matches over the course of 2 weeks. Age is a terrible thing.
