SECRETS OF A TENNIS STAR.
is the story of a father's dream for his son, the commitment and discipline of a determined young athlete, and the rise and fall of a tennis legend. Boasting a career that spanned three decades, Andre Agassi lived his adult life in the spotlight. His fans rejoiced with him over his eight Grand Slams and Olympic gold medal, and suffered with him over his plunge in the rankings in 1997 and his failed marriage to actress Brooke Shields.
Now, Alexandre de Chambure tells the story of two parallel athletes: himself, a gifted young tennis player from Paris and the other his idol, Andre Agassi, who provided him with inspiration and drive. With insight and sensitivity, de Chambure traces Agassi's incredible journey from his crib (with a tennis ball hanging over it) through his amazing 870 career wins.
De Chambure reveals the secrets behind Agassi's tremendous will and determination and why he remains a star even in retirement-both on and off the court.
