Andre Agassi Enshrined into Tennis Hall of Fame

Retired American professional tennis player Andre Agassi was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Almost 5 years after he retired from the game.

A former world number 1 who captured eight grand slam singles titles, Agassi was enshrined at a ceremony in Newport, Rhode Island, along with Fern Lee 'Peachy' Kellmeyer, a trailblazing administrator in women's professional tennis.

Now 41, the American was in a reflective mood at his induction, admitting he made mistakes but was grateful for everything the sport gave him.

Congratulation for Agassi, it was during his time that I was hooked in watching tennis. I love the way he returns those powerful serves by opposing players, especially against power hitters like Pete Sampras.

In 2001, he married fellow tennis Hall of Famer Steffi Graf of Germany. The couple have two children and live in Las Vegas.
