Professional Tennis Champion; Author, Open: An Autobiography

In conversation with Barry MacKay, Tennis Promoter and Broadcaster

During his exhilarating, epic 21-year professional career, Agassi captured eight Grand Slam championships and is the only man to win a career “Golden Slam” – adding an Olympic gold medal to his four Grand Slams. His new book reflects candidly on his life on and off the court, from pivotal matches with rivals Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras and Roger Federer to his personal relationships with Brooke Shields and wife Stefanie Graf, and his role as an education advocate and philanthropist. As the founder of the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation, he has raised more than $85 million for the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, an acclaimed K-12 charter school for underprivileged children in his hometown, Las Vegas.
