Yes Tryphon he did. That's why Agassi was so pleased to play & win the gold for the US in Atlanta

I always thought his name sounded Italian. I thought he looked it too, so i assumed he was Italian. Not that i care what his origins are, as long as he keeps entertaining me with great tennis!

Basically all names ending in 'ian' are supposed to be of Armenian origin, aren't they?

Andre's father: Iranian ;) :confused:
Andre's father's father: Armenian :D :confused:


And Andre's son: Germano-American :hearts:

Funny you brought this up. My Dad was discussing this with me during the final last nite and I didn't know and he said that his dad was Persian (but I can tell him now that he is actually Armenian/Iranian)

Where are people who are Armenian from?

I assumed it was people from different regions, I'm not a total tool :p

I was only asking cause I was not aware where those who were Armenian were from....

well usually Armenian people are from Armenia, a contry near Russia, I'm half Armenian btw thats why I care ;) Don't speak the language and dont look very Armenian though

A long long time ago Armenia was much bigger than it now is but then a part of it was conquered by Persia and another part by Turkey. And since that 100 thousands Armenians lived over Persia and Andre's ancestors are one of these.
Mikaelian is Armenian too

irma it was.

Andre's dad (Mike Agassian) was Armenian by descent but was born in Iran and lived there so he had to compete for Iran.
