Open is a tell-all autobiography of Andre Agassi, one of the best players Tennis has ever seen. He was considered as one of the most gifted men ever to step onto a tennis court, his autobiography is gripping, fast-paced and truly inspirational.
Summary of the Book
Andrew Agassi is one of the best athletes of the world. In his autobiography Agassi pens down his journey from being a confused boy to becoming the world champion. He writes about the rigorous training sessions that he had to go through as a child. A ninth-grade dropout, he was sent to a Florida tennis camp that felt like prison. He goes on to write about his rebellious nature as a teenager and how he had become the style icon with his dyed hair and ear piercings, which changed the way tennis players dressed.
He further mentions about the struggles and despite raw talent, he felt confused and lost all the time. Agassi writes about his 1992 Wimbledon win and his crazy fan following. He describes each of his pivotal matches in detail and also writes about his troubled relationship with Brooke Shields. He talks about his loyal brother, coach and all the people who helped him regain his balance and confidence, and also the love of his life, Stefanie Graf.

A Fascinating JourneyAn awesome book by an awesome person. This book is really very well written and is very easy to understand. It gives an insight on how tough a sportsman's life can be. Many people think that the tennis starts might be leading a very comfortable life, but after reading this book you will realize how tough it is to earn the money and fame which the game offers. Not does Agassi sum up his sports career, he also helps us know his dad, mom, sis, friends, teachers, the academy, his crushes and not to forget his wife Steffi and offcouse his kids. Hats off Andre!!!

One of the better sports biographiesA lot of sports biographies I have read across a gamut of sports are pretty bland and fail to enthuse the reader. This one is pleasantly different ... It is witty, honest (blatant at times) and crisp. It seamlessly takes u through the various phases of Andre's tennis stint ... starting as a 80s rebel to th2 2000s mature statesman of the game ... It's a no hold barred account and has some interesting anecdotes on his rollercoaster life, his relationship with Gil, his on-court rivalry with Sampras,and his relationship with Stefanie Graf (as he calls her !!).. It's very well written, and though c… (Expand)

Rivetting is an understatement for this bookSynonymous to the title of the book, Andre Agassi's autobiography "Open" is a succinct portrayal of a sportsman's inner struggles with self, how he battles against those things in life which he hates to the core and turns the corner. It can prove to be inspirational for those of us who have ended up in the wrong profession with not much motivation.

Great insight into the life of a Tennis playerIf you've grown up in the 80s and 90s and have been somewhat alive during that period you would have heard of Andre Agassi. If you followed Tennis, then you know him as one of the legends. Open is a great book not only to understand that behind every grand slam win there is a lot of hard work, but also because Agassi truly opens up about his life. He talks about his "hate" for tennis, his relationships, and how everything eventually made him the person he turned out to be. An spectacular insight into a tennis legend's hard life.
