Andre Kirk Agassi is an American retired professional tennis player and former world no. 1. His impressive sports profile proves that he was one of the game's most dominant players in Tennis. In singles tennis, Agassi is an eight-time Grand Slam champion who competed in 15 Grand Slam finals and a 1996 Olympic gold medalist. His four Australian Open titles are an Open Era record.
