Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi both gone from the tourny. Andre's match against Patrick Rafter was fun to watch though. Agassi hit the ball at an umpire on purpose after he got a bad call.
WIMBLEDON, England, July 6 — As Patrick Rafter thrust his fist in the air to celebrate his comeback victory Friday in the Wimbledon semifinals, an angry Andre Agassi fired one last shot.Walking toward the net, Agassi pulled a ball from his pocket and belted it at the lineswoman who had infuriated him in the next-to-last game. She dodged out of the way and the ball slammed against the backstop.
The ugliness tainted a marvelous match worthy of tennis’ best rivalry. Rafter was two points from defeat and trailed 5-3 in the final set before rallying for a 2-6, 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 8-6 victory.
“I think he pretty well snapped,” Rafter said.
The 28-year-old Australian, contemplating retirement after this year, will try for his first Wimbledon title in his second consecutive final. Last year he lost to Pete Sampras.
