Open by Andre Agassi
I was a little hesitant to read this memoir because I have no knowledge of tennis whatsoever. I don’t know how to keep score and I definitely don’t know how to hold a racket. Even with my limited tennis knowledge I found this memoir to be an intimate look into a lonely and exhausting sport.
This candid view into Agassi’s life makes you wonder if sports legends are born or made. He had a grueling childhood filled with daily regiments of tennis drills and grew up hating tennis. (By the end of the book it’s hard to know if there was ever a moment when he liked tennis.)
Equal parts personal life and professional life this memoir will give you the inside story of a tennis legend.
