MADRID, OCT. 20. Andre Agassi is a bit sceptical about fashion models in skimpy outfits replacing ball boys at the Madrid Masters.
``I suppose I need some time to let it absorb,'' Agassi said on Tuesday. ``I think it's important for our sport to understand its product clearly. And I'm not quite convinced it's part of our product.''
Women in black tank tops and white, knee-length skirts chased errant shots and handed towels to the players. Reportedly paid $1,100 for the week, the women are appearing in one televised match each day.
``It was difficult, to say the least, to concentrate on the ball,'' Agassi said. ``But I suppose I had an advantage. I'm used to playing with my wife'' Steffi Graf.``The skirts look like they're a little difficult to run in,'' Agassi said. ``I think they need to be shorter, maybe.'' AP
