Andre Agassi
By Sharon Fabian

1     Mike and Elizabeth Agassi immigrated to the United States from Iran. In Iran, Mike Agassi had been a boxer. He had boxed for Iran in the 1952 Olympics. In the U.S., the Agassi family lived in Las Vegas, and Mike became a tennis instructor.
2     When their baby Andre was born, Mike couldn't wait to start teaching him tennis. So, he taped a tiny tennis racket to Andre's little hand and hung a tennis ball over his crib. At least, that's how the story goes.
3     There have been lots of stories about Andre Agassi. He has been a popular, and sometimes controversial, tennis star.
4     At about the age of four, Andre really began playing tennis. His dad continued to coach him for several years. Then he got so good that he was ready to move on to a new coach.
