2-)How The hell somebody that walked out of the court at almost 40 years old and just because his body could not take more, can say that he HATES tennis, what is he trying to accomplish , to sell more books? If is not the case, he needs a therapist to help him to find out what it is that he hated in his life, as per the book, a lot of things might be, many none his fault though....
The guy trained like a warrior, loved to hit tennis balls and WIN, hired the best people to help him to go to the top!, athletes that get to the top of the sport like that need to absolutely be IN LOVE with what they do, otherwise there is no way they can make it, he could have walk away when he was a teen and was not under his father supervision and never did, so don't give me that crap that you hate the sport. Actually is very contradictory how he talks about his game and later says that he hates it. WHAT A DISRESPECT TO ALL THE FELLOW PLAYERS , AND BAD MESSAGE TO TENNIS LOVERS, AND KIDS WHO ARE WORKING TO GET TO THE PRO TOUR.
3-)The Agassi image i had before this book is totally different now, the guy is just an idiot kid.

Sorry , i had to get this out of my chest, What do you think people?
Ive heard alot tennis pros talking about them being forced to play from a young age and disliking it, I don't understand why people get so offended when agassi goes a step further and says he flat out hates it. if your trying to exel at any profesion their is someone who already has that doesn't like what they are doing because they where forced into it or wanted to do something else but they couldn't for what ever reason. Heck with your logic I can easily say that 30 year olds that work at mcdonalds and hate their jobs are being disrecpectful to millions of poor people in 3rd world countries that would love haveing that job.
