    Without even saying a word (that we could hear) he bought such presence to the occasion. Amazing when you look at his early years, how nicely he has matured into this wise old sage of tennis.

    A class act, just like Federer. They had a nice moment there.

    I agree. It was great, especially since I'm a fan of both.

    I agree. Also, idk why people were saying a few weeks ago that Agassi looks old. He looked fine to me.

    I detest Agassi. He's a pathetic consumerist whore. He and his Swiss watch.

    unfortunately you my son... are alone in that opinion, where Agassi is one of the most charismatic players of all time... :evil:

    I think he looks like a man that has recently retired from the sport and doesn't train/compete obsessively day in/day out. He's gained a little weight but he looks good! Give him 10 more years off tour and then comment about how "old" he looks. If you want to see someone that looks "old", check out Ilie Nastase.

    Though we couldn't hear him you could read Agassi's lips when he presented the trophy to Roger. He said "I'm so happy for you man."

    Two of the GOAT candidates on the same podium, both class guys. Great moment.

    Lol agassi doesn't look old. He looks pretty pro imo, like he's a james bond kind of guy.

    Ilie Nastase is like what, 85 years old? Yup, he's old.

    He said " I am so happy for you Roger" That was the only thing me and my girlfriend could decipher

    ( that's right, I actually did the impossible, get my girl to watch a whole match with me!!)

    Act is the keyword here. He would do the same thing for another sponsor pusher, say somebody who wears adidas. Oh, i have no doubt he was happy, but what do you want to bet he got paid a nice, fat "appearance fee"? ... it looked too much like a commercial for my taste!

    It was great to see him again. And I thought it was especially appropriate that the last man to win the career Grand Slam presented the trophy to the latest man to accomplish it. By the way, it was also nice seeing Steffi yesterday.

    Nope. Just saw hit in person recently and he's still in great condition and hits a real nice ball. He'll be playing some on the Outback Tour, WTT and a few other events this summer. Also if you didn't see it - TTC is rerunning the Wimbledon thing with Andre, Steffi, Kim and Tim later in the week and you can see how "fat" he is.

    Yes. I thought that was especially cool, that Agassi presented the trophy to Federer.

    Neat moment....
