Andre Agassi: What he said, really meant and definitely did not


Andre Agassi in Indian Wells in 2006

What he said:

“So Dad, please don’t ever stop telling me what to do.”

Andre Agassi, in his acceptance speech at the Newport International Tennis Hall of Fame, thanked his dad Mike for his advice over the years that included exhorting him to win Wimbledon and all the Slams, getting into the Hall of Fame, and marrying his current wife, Steff Graf.

What he really meant:

“I could always do with more validation. Thanks, Dad.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Just don’t remind me to floss at night. (Steffi does that now.)”
