What did you say?
Over the past two weeks I've been hitting the ball better than I ever have. I feel stronger and better. It's a great feeling to work hard and have it pay off.
At the age of 32 Australian Open champion Andre Agassi is still getting better.

I think I played a great tournament. I played two great weeks. For me it was a dream. It's great to play a final in a Grand Slam
Beaten finalist Rainer Schuettler looks on the bright side despite winning just five games in the final.

She's not too pleased about that, but hopefully I'll have 50 years with her to be mad at me about more things. Count on me to work on it
Agassi admits that he may struggle to persuade wife Steffi Graf to fulfil their pact of competing in the French Open mixed doubles if he won the title.

I certainly didn't think that I would still be playing at this age. When I was growing up I wanted to be the youngest to win something, not the oldest
Martina Navratilova celebrates becoming the oldest player to win a Grand Slam title, at the age of 46. She and partner Leander Paes won the mixed doubles title.

Martina said earlier today that she won her first Grand Slam in 1973. I was born in that year
Leander Paes reminds Navratilova just how old she is.
