Take a bow to these sporting legends!

This is to: My two favourite sport stars who are definitely sporting legends.

I have been a die-hard fan of Agassi since the time he entered the grass courts of Wimbledon in 1992. Unexpectedly winning the first Grand Slam championship there to then continuing to be the one of only five players to win all four Grand Slam singles events, he is truly an amazing guy.

He is much more than a successful tennis star. His humbleness, style, charisma, philanthropic nature has led him to be the favourite of millions.

On September 3, after playing his final match to Benjamin Becker in the 2006 U.S. Open's third round Agassi said a few words to his fans: "Thanks. The scoreboard said I lost today, but what the scoreboard doesn't say is what it is I have found. Over the last twenty-one years, I have found loyalty: you have pulled for me on the court and also in life. I've found inspiration: you have willed me to succeed sometimes even in my lowest moments. And I've found generosity: you have given me your shoulders to stand on to reach for my dreams, dreams I could have never reached without you. Over the last twenty-one years, I have found you and I will take you and the memory of you with me for the rest of my life. Thank you."

Salute to one of the greatest sporting legends...

Now, from one sporting legend to the fastest man on the circuit - Michael Schumacher

He announces his retirement from Formula1 after finishing this session. After winning the Italian Grand Prix, Ferrari takes the lead from Renault in the 2006 season. With 3 races to go now, Michael Schumacher is 2 pts behind season leader Alonso.

His words while announcing his retirement:
"It has been a really tough decision not to work together at this level but I knew that one day it had to come.
All these years in Formula 1 have been amazing, especially those spent alongside my friends in the Scuderia (Ferrari)," he said. "Soon my future will belong to my family, while I am happy to be still part of Ferrari. But for now, what matters is this world championship," said the German.

A great driver, a great entertainer and a legend!

I am surely going to miss seeing Agassi on the tennis courts.

Not much of a Formula 1 fan though. :)

As a huge F1 fan I am divided about Herr Schumacher! On the one hand I can totally appreciate his achievements! He has broken virtually every record there is but on the other hand...I dunno...there is something missing to make him my champion of champions! Maybe it is the memory of Adelaide...ha! or even Monaco this year...

Yeah, he has controversies behind his back. Well, its always debatable, and probably a lot of people have some of this going behind them since they are always so much 'in focus'. And for me to be a hero, one has to be first a value driven person and then a great driver. Its always so hard to find the 'real' truth! But I hope he finishes his career as a champion for this season and so is Ferrari :) Fingers crossed!

no can do dude! At home in Cork there is an Asturian flag over my bed - Alonso is the only champion I'll be praying for :) must admit though things are beginning to look dodge for him! Having said that, while Brazil will possibly go Herr Schumacher's way, I think the other two are Alonso's :)
