The sport of tennis wouldn’t be the same without the former ATP tennis professional Andre Agassi. The retired world number one is generally considered one of the greatest players of all-time and has brought much popularity to the sport during the 1990s.
Andre Agassi first picked up a racket at the age of nine, but his formal tennis training began at the age of 13. As a teenager, he attended the prestigious Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Florida. There he was able to compete amongst the world’s best junior competition and to train with top professionals. Having tremendous success at the junior level, Andre Agassi turned professional in 1986, at the age of 16. By the end of 1986, he was ranked No. 91 and won his first Grand Slam in 1992, which was on grass at Wimbledon. From 1994-2002, he was coached by American tennis coach and former professional player Brad Gilbert, who helped Agassi win two US Open titles in 1994 and 1999, the French Open in 1999, and the Australian Open in 1995, 2000, and 2001. The year 1995 was one of Agassi’s best, reaching the world No. 1 ranking for the first time in his career and having the best win/loss record with 73 wins and 9 losses. The next year in 1996, he made Olympic history winning a gold medal. In 1999, Agassi made history as he became the fifth male player to win all four Grand Slam singles titles in the Open Era with his US Open and French Open wins that year. The only time that he ended his career at No. 1 was in 1999 as well. One of his greatest honors to date come about when he became the only ATP player to win the Career Super Slam: all four Grand Slam tournaments, an Olympic medal, and a Year-End Championship. In 2006, Agassi retired from the game due to sciatica, but has been involved in philanthropic efforts ever since. He founded the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation and has raised over 60 million dollars for underserved youth. He will always be remembered for his consistent service returns and his tennis domination during the 1990s and 2000s.
