This is a very interesting question. I think Cyborg has it right though it really depends on the story you want to write. If Pete had chosen to keep playing would you have thought of him at all? I'm not so sure. Agassi comes to mind as an example of continuing and fizzling, if he had retired after the 2005 US Open instead of the 2006 one, he would be looked at as having his last run being a memorable marathon one to a slam final..instead of seemingly limping into retirement throughout a sort of lackluster 2006.
