Agassi, a former world No. 1, is not a stranger to Adelaide.
The American and fan-favorite Lleyton Hewitt played a great semi-final match in Adelaide in 1998.
Adelaide had an ATP event for more than three decades -- 1974-2008.
Hewitt, who went on to win his maiden ATP title that year in the city where he was born, edged Agassi in tight two sets 7-6 (5) 7-6 (4).
The World Tennis Challenge features three teams -- each consisting of four players.
Each team gets a current player and former player for singles -- and two players to play doubles.
Local Mark Philippoussis, Frenchman Fabrice Santoro, and Croatia's Goran Ivanisevic were the three legends who took part in this year's Adelaide exhibition.
