Drugassi is angling his way into becoming a mayor of Vegas. presidency may be a bit of a stretch.

as mayorship or even a governorship is a small possibility given his massive popularity with the sheep.

Well he's also been on David Letterman and 60 minutes. Oprah not far behind.

I just don't understand how someone who hated tennis as much as he claims could have been so successful. If he really did hate it so much, he ought to have a career as an actor because there were many matches where he looked like he really did care.

He cared about winning, thats the problem he only liked the winning (not the tennis) :)

I just finished reading a book review by Sean Gregory about Agassi's book "Open" are a couple of excerpts: "Agassi's childhood was hellish, the backyard court his prison. Later he battled depression, donned a hairpiece and dabbled in drugs."
Well I think most of us know that by now, he has been on 60 minutes, Regis and Kelly etc., so he's been milking it all around the media.
One disclosure I found interesting is the following "one time he threw a hissy fit when his then girlfriend (later his wife) Brooke Shields licked Joey's hand on Friends....According to Agassi, Boris Becker blows? Pete Sampras is a terrible tipper and once in the Wimbledon lockerroom John McEnroe called Agassi's future wife Steffi a "bitch".:rolleyes:(If the shoe fits)
Does the reference to Boris Becker "blows" mean what I think it does? :eek: I know he's had a rather sordid sex life (banging some waitress in a closet & knocking her up)but just wondering if I'm correct about the blow reference:confused: I won't be reading the book, I was more a Pete Sampras fan although I don't think Pete's book would be as controversial!
