Biography

American tennis ace, born to a father of Armenian descent, originally Agassian. In 1993 he briefly met five-year-older actress Brooke Shields. They had both been child stars, were both religious and both in a career slump. They began sending each other notes and faxes, then talking on the phone for hours. By the time they got together in December, meeting in an Italian restaurant in Los Angeles, Shields said she was already smitten. Their excitement together spilled over into their professional lives. Agassi got a new coach and a nine-figure contract from Nike, He won the U.S. Open in 1994, the Australian Open in 1995 and the Olympic Gold Medal in 1996 with Brooke nearby. They married on 4/19/1997 at 6:45 PM, Monterey, CA. They divided their time between Los Angeles and a new, $2 million house in Las Vegas, but within two years they filed for divorce, 4/09/1999.

From June 1999, Agassi was spotted in the company of tennis champ Steffi Graf at various spots in N.Y. and L.A., a relationship they confirmed as a romance by August. They were married on 10/22/2001 at Agassi's Las Vegas home and their son was born the following Saturday, 10/26/2001. The tennis champions welcomed their daughter Jaz into the world on October 3, 2003 in Las Vegas, NV. Jaz is the couple’s second child.

Agassi bade a tearful farewell to competitive tennis after he lost his 21st consecutive tournament, the US Open, on September 3, 2006. His confessional memoir was released in November 2009. "Open" details his love-hate relationship with the game of tennis as well as his use of drugs.
