Andre Agassi recently revealed that his kids, Jaden and Jaz, were once unable to comprehend the level of his and Steffi Graf's fame. He talked about it while in conversation with People during the Netflix Slam, which was held in March this year.

The former World No. 1 stated that the kids used to get confused when people walked up to their father and mother in public places.

"When people are coming up to us in grocery stores, [Jaden and Jaz] were like, 'What's up with these people?' So you go through a whole phase of them going, 'Well, this makes no sense that the people are coming up as if there's a big deal'," Agassi said.

Agassi then added that the kids soon realized that their father and mother were big names in tennis.

"And then they start to put together why it's a big deal. They start to realize they're looking behind the Wizard of Oz curtain and they realize it's not all that," the American added.
