A hip injury kept Andre Agassi out of Wimbledon and might also keep him from going for his ninth Grand Slam title at the U.S. Open.
 

"I've been a little fatigued on guessing. The jury is still out on my hip," he said Tuesday when asked how long it will take him to recover from the injury. "It's something I've struggled with on and off for a while now."

"Not playing the clay season and then going straight out to the grass compromised how it's feeling," Agassi said. "I knew I wasn't physically in a position to be anywhere near my best. I'm hoping this time off, combined with being back on the hard courts, will be a good opportunity for me to feel a lot better."

"I still have a tremendous belief that if I'm feeling good, I can play some of my best tennis," he said. "At this stage in my career, I can only think of the ultimate prize. If I don't think I'm in the hunt for that, I won't play."

I'm glad to see that he doesn't even mention reitrement in this article. He's still got a couple years in him.

Well i heard a rumor he was going to call it a day. The injury could take a very long time to recover from, don't be surprised if he never play's again.

Well, he has had quite the career. He got the career grand slam, wasn't it only 1 other person who has that?
