Agassi gets Wheaties box just as he exits French Open
GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Andre Agassi got his own Wheaties box - just as he lost in the French Open.
Wheaties announced Monday that it will honor Agassi with a special-edition box to mark the start of this week's French Open.
Agassi eliminated on the first day of play by Jerome Haehnel, a qualifier from France ranked 271st, who pulled off an upset to rival the biggest in Grand Slam history.
Playing his first tour-level match at age 23, Haehnel beat Agassi 6-4, 7-6 (4), 6-3.
Agassi, the sixth seed in the tournament, was honored by the "Breakfast of Champions" for his eight Grand Slam titles and 58 career singles titles.
Agassi's Wheaties box will be available nationally.
Other tennis players featured on the Wheaties box in the past include Don Budge, Chris Evert, Arthur Ashe, Althea Gibson and Pete Sampras.
Last of the moon-and-volley specialists.
I believe in luck. How else can you explain the success of those you don't like? ---Jean Cocteau
