Re: More News

I saw a clip today on Tennis Channel during the FO replay of matches with Andre talking about Agassi Prep. There were several students also talking about how they never thought they'd go to college. I couldn't record it -- and anyway I came in on it late. But if you have TTC, check it out. I'm sure it'll air again.

Also, someone on the Steffi thread on the women's board reported that French TV is offering a 45 minute documentary with interviews with Steffi and Andre and the 10 year anniversary of their French Open victories to air before the men's singles final. It's on France2?

If anyone in Europe can record this, can you please share with us via Youtube???? Many thanks in advance.

Definitely not official. First, Andre's birthday is wrong, and at the bottom it says they're not affiliated with Andre. This site is much better thanks to you Stephan and the many others who share so unselfishly.

Agassi to be honored on first night of US Open 2009
The Associated Press
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Andre Agassi is coming back to the U.S. Open.

The two-time champion will headline the Grand Slam tournament's opening night ceremony on Aug. 31, celebrating athletes' charity work.

He began the Andre Agassi Foundation in 1994, the year of his first title at Flushing Meadows. He also won the 1999 U.S. Open for the fifth of his eight Grand Slam titles.

Agassi ended his 21-year career there when he retired after the 2006 tournament.

Among his foundation's main efforts is the charter school in Las Vegas named for the tennis star. It graduated its first senior class in June, sending all 34 students to college.

Re: More News

short update:
Jul. 08, 2009
Copyright © Las Vegas Review-Journal


LEFTOVERS: Agassi continues to serve
Andre Agassi returns to center stage of the U.S. Open next month, and he won't even have to work up a sweat or swing a tennis racket.

The Las Vegan and a few other sports figures will be honored for their charitable work on Aug. 31 during opening-night ceremonies.



The eight-time Grand Slam winner founded the Andre Agassi Foundation in 1994, the same year he won his first of two Open titles. The organization has raised nearly $75 million to provide opportunities for at-risk youth in Southern Nevada.

The Las Vegas charter school that bears Agassi's name graduated its first high school class this year.

Later this month, Agassi, 39, will compete in two matches for the Philadelphia Freedom in the World Team Tennis league.

Even in retirement, he's never far from the court....
