Agassi calls for tennis 'commissioner'

Andre Agassi has said tennis will suffer unless a single ruling body is brought in to govern the game.

Speaking at the Masters Cup, Agassi said that there are too many people looking after their "own agendas" rather than the good of the game. "The game could stand a commissioner, there's no question about that," said Agassi. "You need someone who can rise above all the petty indifferences and agendas and issues. If I could change tennis in one go it would be organising all the bodies. It's absurd to have so many bodies working separately in some cases against each other for sponsorship dollars, air time and branding."
