|I was up til 12:15am last night watching the greatest tennis player ever win one of the best matches ever to advance to the semi-finals of the US Open.|
Andre Agassi won in 5 sets over James Blake (up and coming US tennis star). It was an amazing match and the 35 yr old Andre pulled it out. After he dropped the first 2 sets... I thought he was done. After he was down a break in the 3rd set... I thought he was done. Even after he came back and won the 3rd and 4th set, he got down a break in the 5th set. I thought he was done... When James Blake was serving for the match in the 5th set up 5-4... I thought he was done. Even after he came all the way back and forced a tie breaker in the 5th set, he got down 3-0 in the tiebreaker... I thought he was done.
But the Greatest Tennis Player to ever live, Andre Agassi, stepped up and roared back to win! He was the oldest player since 1991 to make a US Open quarter final, he is now the 5th oldest person ever to make a US Open semi final.
We Love You Andre!
