Andre Agassi's career would make a good tennis story if it was commissioned.
It had nearly everything. Being forced into the sport by an overly controlling father against his will, hating it, being forced to attend the Bollettieri academy against his will and acting out there, underachieving at first during his pro career and initially hating Wimbledon, eventually getting his act together to rise to the top of the sport, dating a famous Hollywood actress, getting distracted and plummeting down the rankings, doing drugs, rising from the ashes to reach the top again, dating a legendary female player etc.
Certainly not too many other great players had as interesting a ride as that.
Agassi's life and career would make a great movie (his book was amazing).
