El padre es el mejor personaje del libro, que desgraciadamente una vez que Andre empieza a ganar torneos y a tener su platita e independizarse, un poco desaparece: If I had to choose between Sampras and Agassi to invite to a dinner party, it would be Agassi any day. And, of course, Steffi Graf’s father is just as insane as Agassi’s father. First, it is not a story of a flawless man or an impeccable athlete.

Now he seems like a little softie to me and I’m slightly obsessed with googling him. He does just that.

Reading Open taught me so much about tennis and made me love Agassi. Yet when he’s achieved more than anyone could ever expect, Agassi lets us in on the elation and triumph, however fleeting those triumphs were.

Open by Andre Agassi

We revel in his joy at the end of the memoir, as he relates the simple joys of marriage to another tennis legend, Steffi Graf and of fatherhood. In clear, taut prose, Agassi evokes his loyal brother, his wise coach, his gentle trainer, all the people who help him regain his balance and find love at last with Stefanie Graf. In clear, intelligent prose, Agassi reveals how autobiografoa grew to despise tennis, even as it brought him fame and fortune; essentially bullied and browbeaten by his demanding father to succeed at the game, tennis became autobiogrwfia prison for Agassi, even as grew into becoming one of the greatest players the game has ever seen.


It is a narrative of his innermost thoughts process at moments that affected him; and autobiogracia just agasi ones on the tennis court. I supported erratic players such as Rios, Kuerten, Henman plus the old champ Edberg because I liked his serve and volley. This is the only perfection there is, the perfection of helping others.

Jan 24, Daniel Audet autoiografia it it was amazing. So, what is the book about? Even the structure of tennis, the way the pieces fit inside one another like Russian nesting dolls, mimics the structure of our days.

One interesting typographical note: Swimming world championships mean that I won’t back off from the tv. He’s obviously a formidable competitor, but it’s interesting to see what traits, regardless of whether he liked tennis or not, helped him move forward.

She looked mysterious and unapproachable. Inspired by her quiet strength, he fights through crippling pain from a deteriorating spine to remain a dangerous opponent in the twenty-first and final year of his career.

Andres life covers a lot of real estate, both literally and figuratively. You feel screaming “Allez Agassi, Allez Agassi! My old editor always said that I should try to write like anyone, it should be J.

View all 4 comments. I started reading the main tournaments results on newspapers and on teletext. And the way Andre A. I’ve just never been able to follow a narrative so effortlessly, feeling I was completely on top of everything going on, past and present.


Dopo giorni di strazio mi sono decisa a prendere il toro per le corna e finalmente leggere un libro sullo sport.

Andre Agassi

Nay, love for a girl. And thank goodness it was a good one: The way his father forced him to train as a little boy and the life he led as a tennis pro were also very interesting to know.

I expected something much more self-absorbed and glossy, but instead got something resembling the inner monologue of an exceptionally driven athlete. Even though the hairy bald man states umpteen times that he “hates” tennis in this book, he was a talent in the game. Overnight he becomes a fan favorite and a media target.

But he’s misunderstood by the media. Alla stesura ha contribuito in modo sostanziale J. I also loved the fact that with exceptions he never refers to Pete Sampras as Sampras, but always as Pete. Let’s face it, just like this review of mine, “Open” is a narcissistic accomplishment.

I have a checkered past with Andre Agassi. I have never read such an unflinching self-account from a major star although I hear I need to check out the Duff McKagan autobiography too, if I want to truly wallow in STD-soaked self-reflection.

Wimbledon is a religion. To cut a long story short, I was too clumsy at that time to win a single point with my beloved girl.
