Au revoir Agassi

Two tennis posts in a row, I know. :-)

Well, Andre Agassi finally lost. For a while there in the fourth set it looked he might make another miraculous run. His immobility finally caught up with him. The eight-minute standing ovation the crowd gave Agassi after the match was very moving.

If you are interested, SI Magazine published a great feature about Andre Agassi. I always rooted for Sampras over Agassi, so cheering for him has never come naturally. But after watching him at the US Open and being reminded about how he get there from the SI story, I have renewed respect for the guy. He gives a lot back to the community as well. Read all about him online.


I had a good Labor Day weekend. I went to WestFest on Sunday. WestFest is a Czech festival in West, Texas. The city of West is home to a large Czech population. The Czech Stop gas station is also a Czech bakery, and they make yummy kolaches. So in August I went to the Czech Republic, and in September I reminisced at an authentic Czech festival in Texas. And Nadal beat at Czech player today. Everything's coming up Czech.

I played a little doubles tennis over the weekend as well. We lost to old men, but it was still fun to be out there hitting for two hours. I need to find tennis buddies here.

Hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend!
