Andre Agassi Education Foundation
 



A sixteen year old USTA junior player has published a graphic novel (manga) about a young girl’s fun-filled journey of becoming a tennis champion.

The book, titled “Aced, Volume One”, is being sold for charity ($12), and the entire proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education.

Please check out this book by visiting
https://www.yutopian.com/aced/. You can order directly on this website through the publisher’s secured server.

The Andre Agassi Foundation for Education has raised millions of dollars for charity and has done wonderful work to transform public education for the underserved.

Yes this is true. I hope the other tennis legendaries will do something like this. :) It would be great if the famous personalities in the world of sports will do something to help out other people especially those who are less fortunate. Recently, Fernando Gonzalez and some of his co-players do something to provide assistance to the victims in Chile and Haiti. Serena also mentioned that she has plans to help build schools in Africa. :)

the exo thing was pretty bad, but his humanitarian work is something to behold

The exo was a three minutes of idiocy between two people who should know better. Agassi apologized. Sampras sort of ... It's not going to have any impact of either of their larger reputations or anything else.

But what if that Sampras temper ball hit Agassi, then it'd be a whole different story...

yes indeed! what I admire about it was that, despite of the "not so good relationship" that Pete and Andre has, they still allowed themselves to participate in the said tournament just to extend help to the Haiti victims. What they did was really a legendary one and I know people will always remember it.

agassa is still a great player:D

Iceman778 05-12-2010 08:22 AM

agassi has done lot more charity work than any other tennis champions, even though he himself didnt finish high school

Read the book and then tell me what you think about Andre.

DrBHarper 02-23-2011 06:08 PM

I'm a big Agassi fan and I've read the book, the level of charity work he has done the last 10+ years is pretty amazing. I know he's had his issues with his personal life particularly when it came to drugs, but if you read about projects like the charter school he set up for at risk kids in Las Vegas you can't help but root for the guy.

I think Andre's a pretty cool guy. He takes the ball early and doesn't afraid of anything

highsierra 06-26-2011 01:26 PM

I don't have a problem with his drug use. He used "recreational drugs" instead of performance enhancement drugs. It's in the same category as alcohol and cigarettes if you ask me. Only it's illegal in the eyes of many institutions.

He's awesome:cry:. I think that's the reason he has a foundation for education. There should be more tennis champions like him.
