Recurring Decimals…..

Everything here is irrelevant

Ageless !!

Last night at the US Opens, Andre Agassi, aged 36, which in lawn-tennis world is like being 60 or something, defeated the rising star of the men’s game, Marcos Baghdatis (aged 21) in a thrilling five setter.

This victory, even if it came in only the second round, was certainly in the same vein as Agassi cranked back the clock against someone 15 years his junior and ultimately proved to be the fresher, fitter man in a three-hour-and-48-minute marathon that ended well after midnight with the cavernous stadium still very well populated.

Hmm – I will have whatever he is having 😉

Agassi is playing his last tournament and looks like he wants to go out with a bang. A nice tribute here.
