    Agassi dropped the first set 5-7. Now worked out the slightest edge to 6-4 in the second. But he plays so poorly it hurts to watch!! Sets up the point beautifully and then misses the easiest put away. And twice the exact same shot in a row. I am still rooting for him though!

    I think this might be it for Andre.Probably his last year with the U.S Open paying tribute.

    That's it. Agassi is out. Bjorn Phau (Ger) took it 7-5, 7-5. Hope this is not the end of the line for AA.

    Did anybody have money on Phau? That would have been a nice payday...maybe better than Safin to beat Davydenko.

    How weak of Agassi, another dissapointment.
    It's not that Agassi lost to a top player, no to Bjorn Phau.

    Agassi is finished there is no way he will play another year. He should just play the Masters tourneys and the Grand Slams and then call it quits.

    Phau has been playing well lately. He's a tough guy to play if you are rusty. He's quick, consistent and doesn't beat himself.

    No big deal, Wimby and the U.S. are right around the corner. We all know Andre's record in slams. He's just not hungry enough in the smaller tourneys, when you've been doing this for the past 20 years it takes a toll not only on the body but the mind. Although it would have been nice for him to go further if not win this, his mind just wasn't right and I for one understand. Go ANDRE!!!

    That's a shame. Don't write him off though, people have been doing that for a decade. He just needs more match practice. It does make me nervous, but he'll always do better in bigger tourneys.

    agassi is hanging on because all of his sponsors give major $$ to his foundation. he's otherwise retired. the last REAL tennis moment of his life was last year's US Open: he split sets with FED, was up a break BUT failed to consolidate because of Fed's mis-hit winneR.

    I was standing at the court-exit tunnel and I saw his eyes as he walked off.

    Very sad . . . because the entire stadium was ready to get behind him if he held serve. New York was ready to go crazy; they were ready to tear the building down > they just needed him to consolidate the break... but it was not to be... and that my friend was Andre's last stand.

    It's all over now > he's just honoring sponsor obligations and trying to appear like he's still on tour...

    No, I don't believe that at all. He wouldn't be playing if he knew he couldn't compete with the best, including Federer. The year's just begun and he's just come off of injury, so give the guy a break.
