Thank you for all the games…

Is this a season of goodbyes or what??

Tennis says goodbye to one of its greatest player when Andre Agassi played his last match at the US Open on the 3rd of September 2006. It was an emotional match. Well, after 1144 matches, 60 titles and 21 years on tour, it was indeed an emotional one.

Andre Agassi is one of the tennis icons during my younger years, with players like Pete Sampras, Michael Chang, Jim Courier, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Boris Becker and few more.

My favourite player back then was Michael Chang, but I have always supported Andre too. It’s always nice to watch him play. A player with a rather flamboyant style. At least not as dull as Pistol Pete or Michael Chang. Lol…  

 A final bow, a fixed routine of his after every match.

Good bye, Andre! Thanks for all the amazing matches… you are indeed one of tennis greatest player…

And oh yeah, I still have a picture of you tagged to my tennis bag since long ago…
