Transmission Shifting slow

When I start from a complete stop, my transmission takes forever to shift out of first gear. It just started happening today. The engine revs up to about 6K before it shifts. The other shifts are fine but going from a complete stop is a pain in the you know what. I have a 2001 A4 coupe. Any ever deal with this before?

Thanks in advance.
