Beyond the Baseline Podcast: Andre Agassi

Thursday February 25th, 2016

On this week's episode of the SI Tennis Beyond the Baseline Podcast, Sports Illustrated executive editor and host Jon Wertheim talks with Andre Agassi. 

Agassi talks with Wertheim about his life after his tennis career. He reveals what he spends most of his time doing, his philanthropic efforts with the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education and what he learned from writing his book Open: An Autobiography, which was released in 2009. Agassi discusses his current relationship with sports in general and specifically with tennis—the eight-time Grand Slam champion reveals whether or not he follows the ATP and/or WTA Tours and knows the up-and-coming players.

The pair also discusses Agassi's recent investment with his wife, Steffi Graf, and others in the new athlete-created video website Unscriptd, which is currently being using by Agnieszka Radwanska, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and others.
