"I fell in love with tennis far too late in my life, but the reason I have everything I hold dear is because tennis has loved me back."
Andre Agassi admits that he was not always pleased with having to grind his way on the tennis circuit. He learnt to love the game as he grew older.
What he really meant:
“Tennis and Steffi (Graf) loved me back, man. They sure did.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Haven’t you read Open yet?”
