2. Andre Agassi

DOB: 29.04.1970
Nationality: American
World Ranking: 2
Australian Open record: 
2002 :: n/a

1997 :: n/a

Agassi may now be 32 years old but he is still among the leading candidates to take the title - and an eighth Grand Slam crown.

He remains one of the quickest and most agile players on the tour, and his legendary fitness is a major factor in the fiercely hot conditions at Melbourne Park.

The American was hugely disappointed to finish last year without a major title, and defeat to arch rival Pete Sampras in the US Open final was especially hard.

But while Sampras saw that victory as the perfect moment to take an extended break, the loss has spurred Agassi on.

And after successive wins in 2000 and 2001, he will be keen to improve on last year when he was forced to retire with an injury before playing his first match.
