Open : an Autobiography (Paperback) Price: Rs.218

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.

About Andre Agassi

Andre Agassi is a retired American professional tennis player and former World No. 1. He is considered by critics and fellow players to be one of the greatest tennis players of all time.

Rivetting is an understatement for this book

Synonymous 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.
Also Andre's humaneness and his deep concern for his entourage, especially his all out efforts to help them during their troubled times, leaves one with a lump in the throat. His persistent wooing of Stefanie before their marriage, coup...

It can prove to be inspirational for those of us who have ended up in the wrong profession with not much motivation.
Also Andre's humaneness and his deep concern for his entourage, especially his all out efforts to help them during their troubled times, leaves one with a lump in the throat. His persistent wooing of Stefanie before their marriage, coupled with Brad Gilbert's prophecy about his marriage to Stefanie and they going the family way also made up for a spellbinding read. That Andre choose to divulge the whole world about his dope issue when he could as well have swept it under the carpet, will go a long way in ascertaining him as one of the noblest sports person ever to grace a tennis court.

One of the better sports biographies

A 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 covers almost 2 decades, It would never allow ur interest to plummet ...

Lastly, I must admit: throughout my life I have been and would remain a Pete Sampras fanatic, but this book in comparison to Sampras' "A Champion's Mind" is a clear winner !!!

A Fascinating Journey

An 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!!!

Engaging journey for tennis enthusiasts...!!

I am not a big fan of autobiographies/biographies and hence it was no surprise to me that I ended up starting to read this book during a weekend trip outside town, only because a friend was carrying it and suggested it to me as I like tennis a lot. I read about 20 pages and decided to order my copy from Flipkart.

The decision was a perfectly good one as this book is not just a record of the wildly exciting life of the most colourful and charming tennis player ever but also a window into the real, sometimes dark world of tennis away from the perfect greens and purples of Wimbledon.

Flipkart's service was impeccable as usual.

Good Book!

Not being sports fan / autobiographies, I enjoyed this book thoroughly. Don't know how come I ordered it but was hooked on to the book right from starting. Cant write much about Andre Agassi since I havent followed tennis. All i was left with after finishing the book was "he is also HUMAN". And the way he has written the book it is stunningly good. Yes it is inspiring in its own way. Thank him for being so candid about himself, his inner self which is ever so conflicting. In the end, i was left wanting to know more about Pete Sampras and Stefanie Graf though since they have had hu... ()

In the end, i was left wanting to know more about Pete Sampras and Stefanie Graf though since they have had huge impact on Andre. Ordered Pete Sampras autobi right away.
Good book is all i can say. :) Enjoy :)

on of the best sports autobiography

Very well written and very inspiring. One can relate to the book even though he she has not even heard of the game. Open is not about a tennis player's life and what he achieved or how he achieved stardom, it is about a way of living life which is really inspiring.
A must read and a book worth ke...

Good sports autobiography

Open is a nice book intended for fast reading. First chapter is a gem. The way it is written it seems that you a watching a tennis match live. The text is easy to follow and keeps the reader exited. Andre has tried to open up his life without any preaching or prejudice. It is interesting to read... (View complete review)
