Andre began his professional tennis career in 1986 at the age of 16. His performance on the court earned him 60 career men’s singles titles, including 8 Grand Slam singles titles. Agassi is the only male player in the world to win all four Grand Slam titles and an Olympic Gold Medal. In the summer of 2006, Andre retired from competitive tennis.
He married tennis superstar Stefanie Graf in 2001 and together the couple has two children. The Andre Agassi Foundation was established in 1994, which is dedicated to transforming U.S. public education for underserved youth. Andre has raised millions of dollars for his Foundation and the education of children.
The Foundation’s primary beneficiary is the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, a K-12 public charter school which opened in 2001 in Las Vegas’ most economically disadvantaged neighborhood. Agassi Prep will celebrate its first graduating class in June 2009. This summer, Andre will play in the 2009 World TeamTennis League.
