    I'm an aggasi fan myself, and at his age he is still playing amazing tennis, but my question is this, do you think he has any more grand slams in him? Can he get past the likes of Federer, Roddick, Safin, and other top players? Let me hear your thoughts!

    Yes, I think he's quite capable of winning another slam. His best chance will be at US Open.

    I doubt he will get more than one or two for the remainder of his career. If he catches on fire like Federer, then maybe more, but I seriously doubt it. I think at this point he will win one major for every seven or eight that he enters. This just my opinion, I could easily be wrong.

    The draw and some upsets have to happen before he can win a major.
    BTW---Phil must be awesome to say that Agassi sucks!

    Agassi will always be a contender at the AO and USO for the next few years, depending on how long he decides to play.

    Agassi is hurt by the draws. He no longer gets the setup matches, they now go to Rodneck, so it is unlikely he will ever win another major.

    I think tennis would improve, if seeding were based on ranking not stacking. Ever notice how Rodneck never plays a top 10 player until the semi or final. Before he came into favor, Agassi or Sampras got the easy draw.

    Agassi / Fedder was a great match, but at the NASDAQ Agassi looked slow, probably his last year, still a top 20 player.

    Sheesh... they don't stack draws, Barry. There's luck of the draw and there's bad luck of the draw.

    I think Agassi has 1 more Slam left in him. But no more than 1.

    I hope so.. but realistically I don't think so. Maybe the US open this year is his best chance now (after missing out on the AO).

    A minor miracle then if he wins one more. It would be a major miracle if he wins two more and gets into double figures. Then I'd rate him the second best player after Sampras :). At present I'd have him fourth behind Sampras/Laver/Borg.

    I don't think he has another GS in him, but if he does his best shot is the AO. He shows up in great shape every year and catches some players a little out of shape trying to play themself into shape. If he can talk his wife into playing mixed doubles with him, i think he has severa more GS (Mixed doubles) titles in him.

    Huh, he can't volley and I don't think he's ever won a doubles title and you project him to win a ton of mixed slams?

    I'd put him at below Connors at the moment. If Andre can win just one more though, he'd elevate himself above the Connors/Lendl/McEnroe level, IMO.
