Agassi Story
Mike Agassi with Dominic Cobello and Kate Shoup Welsh
Availability : Out of Print - No longer available to order

Available in electronic format from :
http://www.ebooks.com/

Description : The story of the world's true tennis greats and an extended insight into one of the famous 'tennis dads' - Andre Agassi's father Mike - who pushed all his children remorselessly until one made all his sacrifices worthwhile.




The Agassi Story is Mike Agassi's own account of his family's story, presenting a wealth of new insights into his famous son Andre's life. It follows the story of Mike's childhood in the streets of Tehran, his career as an Olympic boxer, his immigration to America first to Chicago, and later to Las Vegas, where he coached tennis and groomed his children to become sporting dynamos. But his teachings came with a high price, and tensions between Mike and his children threatened to pull the family apart.



With his youngest child, Mike managed to instil his own revolutionary style into Andre's game. Once a flamboyant rebel and easily rattled, Andre's marriage to Steffi Graf and his incredible comeback as world number one at the ripe old tennis age' of 33, has dramatically changed him into a calm, composed, humble tennis champion.



Previously untold stories illuminate this rags-to-riches account of an athletic, talented American family. The Agassi Story is a heart warming story of father and son, their turbulent relationship, and ultimate reconciliation.

Mike Agassi is a two-time Olympian and has spent the last 40 years living in Las Vegas with his wife Betty. His three other children Rita, Phillip, and Tami also had respectable tennis careers.
About the Author : Mike Agassi has coached dozens of kids. His three other children Rita, Phillip, and Tami also had respectable tennis careers. A two-time Olympian (Mike boxed for Iran in 1948 and 1952), he has spent the last 40 years living in Las Vegas with his wife Betty. Dominic Cobello is a Montreal writer and editor. Kate Shoup Welsh is a freelance writer and editor who has written about such notable sports figures as Peyton Manning and Marat Safin.
