I probably would not have thought of him, no, but the reality is why I thought of him. Agassi is for sure an interesting choice, Nadal at Wimbledon was hyped and I think the first set was decent/USO vs Baghdatis was classic.
However the Connors example is precisely why I raise the question, playing less and less until you disappear seems ...."anti-climactic" to me.
I like Agassi though. Any other memorable last matches? What was Connors last match, exactly?
