Agassi goes into the US Open very much the veteran of the field, but still in with a great chance of lifting the trophy.
World ranking: 1
US Open best:
Winner (1994, 1999)
2000: 2nd round
The 33-year-old started the year in sensational form, winning the Australian Open and going unbeaten until early March.
He has collected four titles this year and returned to the top of the world rankings, but there have been signs that Agassi may just be falling short at the highest level.
Going out of the French Open in the last eight for the second successive year was a disappointment, and losing in the fourth round at Wimbledon more so.
He has failed to reach a final since winning in Houston in April and, while his form has been solid of late, Agassi will need to raise his game for the US Open.
But few players in the history of the game have been as adept on hardcourts as the Las Vegan and his motivation for another Grand Slam title has never been greater.
With nemesis Pete Sampras finally out of the way, Agassi may fancy his chances of a third title at Flushing Meadows.
