Andre Agassi


Andre Agassi's father represented Iran in boxing in the 1948 and 1952 Olympics.

Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi were the first two players in tennis history to win all four Grand Slam singles titles and an Olympic gold medal. With only their mothers as witnesses, they married on October 22, 2001 at his Las Vegas home.




Agassi was first married for two years to actress Brooke Shields. 

Agassi admitted in 2009 that his long hair in the Nineties was a wig and his obsession with it not falling off lost him his first Grand Slam final at the French Open in 1990. He said: "During the warming-up I prayed. Not for victory, but that my hairpiece would not fall off."
