What a tennis match I saw last night. I stayed glued to the tv for the whole 3+ hours that the match lasted. Oh, how I admire Andre Agassi. you know, I was never really a big fan of his in previous years, mostly in part because my favorite player in the nineties was Pete Sampras, I really loved the guy’s game, so I grew to “dislike” Agassi’s style compared to Sampras’. Nevertheless, I’ve always thought Andre is a good player, without being the biggest fan of his.

All this changed over the lat two days. The day before yesterday I saw a replay on TV of last year’s match between Agassi, and James Blake for the 2005 US open. What a classic. I got all exited watching that game even though it happened a year ago. And then, last night, I could hardly believe I was watching a match that was just as good, but this time it was live. Agassi is awesome! It is not a cliché to say that he truly is a living Legend, like Baghdatis himself called his opponent right after he lost the game.

Last night’s game was truly inspiring, I was glad I watched the whole thing, and I saw the “legend” prolong his story for at least one more game. I now love Agassi, and declare myself a big fan of his for life.
