Get Reading: Open: An Autobiography

Open: An Autobiography by Andre Agassi

Forced by an obsessive father to practise tennis for hours every day, Andre Agassi grew to resent the constant pressure while driving himself to succeed. In 1992 he shocked the world by winning Wimbledon, and became an overnight favourite − and media target. Alongside vivid portraits of rivals, Agassi gives unstinting accounts of his time with Barbra Streisand, his marriage to Brooke Shields, his depression and the mistake that nearly cost him everything, his march to become the oldest number one player and, finally, finding love with Steffi Graf.
