  • af Andre Agassi
    73,95 - 113,95 kr.

    Vi kender ham som en lille hidsig fyr med løvemanke (inklusive lyse striber), guldkæder og alt for stramme tennisshorts. Han gjorde fra start alt, hvad han kunne for at provokere etablissementet, og publikum elskede det. Andre Agassi er en af nyere tids allerstørste tennisspillere. Han har vundet otte Grand Slam titler og ligget nr. 1. på verdensranglisten. Alt det handler ”Open”, Agassis selvbiografi, selvfølgelig om: de afgørende kampe, der genfortælles i suveræn dramatisk stil, rivaliseringen på banen og i omklædningsrummene, træningen, opturene og nedturene – livet som professionel tennisspiller kort sagt. Men ”Open” handler også om en lille dreng, der fra start hader at spille tennis – og som stadig hader det. Om en psykopatisk far der tyranniserer Agassi til at droppe skolen og træne time efter time ud fra filosofien: ”Hvis du slår et par tusinde slag om dagen hele din barndom og din ungdom, bliver du verdens bedste tennisspiller”. Andre hader og frygter sin far, men faren får ret. Andre Agassi bliver nærmest mod sin egen vilje bedre og bedre. Hele vejen op ad ranglisten stritter han imod. Han drikker, fester, kommer op at slås, får hanekam og optræder i nogle mildest talt utraditionelle munderinger på banen. Det ligner et almindeligt teenageoprør, men det udspiller sig for øjnene af millioner af seere, og stikker langt dybere. ”Open” er en fortælling om kampen for at frigøre sig fra en ekstremt dominerende far og finde en måde at forvalte både sit talent og sin personlighed på, en personlighed der i mange år ikke er til at skelne fra den offentlige person, der skaber sig åndssvag i medierne. Om det i den sammenhæng er sundt for Agassi, at han konstant omgiver sig med en hær af rådgivere, der til forveksling ligner fadererstatninger, er tvivlsomt.

    #1 NATIONAL BESTSELLERFar more than a superb memoir about the highest levels of professional tennis, Open is the engrossing story of a remarkable life.Andre Agassi had his life mapped out for him before he left the crib. Groomed to be a tennis champion by his moody and demanding father, by the age of twenty-two Agassi had won the first of his eight grand slams and achieved wealth, celebrity, and the game's highest honors. But as he reveals in this searching autobiography, off the court he was often unhappy and confused, unfulfilled by his great achievements in a sport he had come to resent. Agassi writes candidly about his early success and his uncomfortable relationship with fame, his marriage to Brooke Shields, his growing interest in philanthropy, anddescribed in haunting, point-by-point detailthe highs and lows of his celebrated career.

    He is one of the most beloved athletes in history and one of the most gifted men ever to step onto a tennis court - but from early childhood Andre Agassi hated the game.Coaxed to swing a racket while still in the crib, forced to hit hundreds of balls a day while still in grade school, Agassi resented the constant pressure even as he drove himself to become a prodigy, an inner conflict that would define him. Now, in his beautiful, haunting autobiography, Agassi tells the story of a life framed by such conflicts.Agassi makes us feel his panic as an undersized seven-year-old in Las Vegas, practicing all day under the obsessive gaze of his violent father. We see him at thirteen, banished to a Florida tennis camp. Lonely, scared, a ninth-grade dropout, he rebels in ways that will soon make him a 1980s icon. By the time he turns pro at sixteen, his new look promises to change tennis forever, as does his lightning fast return.And yet, despite his raw talent, he struggles early on. We feel his confusion as he loses to the world's best, his greater confusion as he starts to win. After stumbling in three Grand Slam finals, Agassi shocks the world, and himself, by capturing the 1992 Wimbledon. Overnight he becomes a fan favorite and a media target.Agassi brings a near-photographic memory to every pivotal match, and every public relationship. Alongside vivid portraits of rivals, Agassi gives unstinting accounts of his brief time with Barbra Streisand and his doomed marriage to Brooke Shields. He reveals the depression that shatters his confidence, and the mistake that nearly costs him everything. Finally, he recounts his spectacular resurrection and his march to become the oldest man ever ranked number one.In clear, taut prose, Agassi evokes his loyal brother, his wise coach, his gentle trainer, all the people who help him regain his balance and find love at last with Stefanie Graf.With its breakneck tempo and raw candor, Open will be read and cherished for years. A treat for ardent fans, it will also captivate readers who know nothing about tennis. Like Agassi's game, it sets a new standard for grace, style, speed and power.
