Agassi winning the Cincinnati title is good for several reasons.<br /><br />1 – He knows he beat some big names to win top events (Roddick, Hewitt, Moya)<br />2 – An Agassi firing on all-cylinders gives the US Open a lot more spice<br />3 – Everyone else can shut up about him retiring<br />4 – Despite the emergence of other personalities, the tour still needs Agassi. He still is the most eloquent, popular player around.<br />5 – Everyone goes on about his age (34), but remarkable though it is, I prefer to think of Agassi as a bridge to the past – he played Connors, Lendl, McEnroe and now is mixing it with Roddick and other players of the future. Continuity in sport is a precious thing.<br />6 – It’s great to see a player of his talent end a title-drought.<br />7 – Plus, it was his 17th masters series title – no-one else is close.
