upon his retirement as "perhaps the biggest worldwide star in the sport's history", Agassi's performances, along with his unorthodox apparel and attitude, have seen him cited as one of the most charismatic players in the history of the game, and credited for helping revive the popularity of tennis during the 1990s.
Agassi is an eight-time Grand Slam
singles champion who competed in fifteen Grand Slam finals, and an Olympic gold medalist.
Being number two sucks.
Everybody here is taking the day out of their lives to come watch me, and I thank you for that.
He was too good. I would suggest to his next opponent that he doesn't look to me for advice.
I feel old when I see mousse in my opponent's hair.
I got a hundred bucks says my baby beats Pete's baby. I just think genetics are in my favour.
I love you too man!
I question myself every day. That's what I still find motivating about this. I don't have the answers, I don't pretend that I do just because I won the match. Just keep fighting and maybe something good happens.
I think I've always had the shots. But in the past, I've suffered too many mental lapses. Now, I'm starting to get away from that and my mental discipline and commitment to the game are much better. I think I'm really taking a good look at the big picture. That's the difference between being around for the final or watching the final from my sofa at home.
I'm going to go down swinging. ... I'm sure as heck not going to go home and say I had a bad tournament.
I've been motivated by overcoming challenge and overcoming the hurdles and obstacles that face me. There still is plenty out there to get motivated by.
