    Anybody else watching Agassi and Pavel go blow for blow? Could be a classic in the making, especially if it ends up being Agassi's swan song. First two sets have both gone to a tie breakwith both of them splitting.

    A great match so far, but Agassi is getting run over in the fourth set. This might be it.

    Pretty sure this is only the third set, but nevertheless he is getting run over in it.

    Agassi is in serious trouble. So much for the long goodbye.

    If he loses, at least that will be a quick end to the video montages and syrupy columns.

    A loss today doesn't mean it's over. He'll get a mention tomorrow and god help us if it rains during the tournament at all because we'll get another big dose of it.

    You were saying? ... Agassi just broke serve for 4-4 in the third.

    Geez, I'm beginning to think Pavel will wind up forfeiting this match because of the shits his upset stomach.

    This is beautiful, great drama. Poor Pavel is playing against a NY crowd that won't shut up. No wonder he's popping antacid during changeovers.
    And Agassi is one athlete who deserves all those syrupy columns. His legacy and growth as a person deserves to be praised. It's just a pity the ceremony for Billie Jean King will get buried.

    Is anyone else concerned about the terrorist looking guy sitting behind what I think is Agassi's coach?
