The first thing that struck me when I began reading this book was how well written it was and wondered whether Andre would have made a better writer then tennis player. It was then no surprise to me that the credit for the ease of reading this overview of the rise, fall and ultimate success of one of the greatest tennis players fell onto the ghost writing shoulders of JR Moehringer.
“Open” was one of the best autobiographies I have ever read, not only due to how easy it was for me to read but also, because of its fiction like content. This honest and candid memoir of Agassi's life from his encounters with his clamorous father who forced him into a sport he never liked to his rise up the ATP ladder. Of particular note was his determination to court Stephanie Graff of whom he is now married to.
I would highly recommend this autobiography to all tennis lovers.
