American School U.S. Open Memory: Andre Agassi

All week long we've looked back at some great American School moments at the U.S. Open tennis tournament which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.  American School graduate Andre Agassi has 2 U.S. Open titles among his 8 career Grand Slam titles, though he won twice in New York in very different ways.  Although he had won Wimbledon two years earlier, Andre was unseeded in 1994.  That didn't stop him from beating four seeded players en route to the title match, including Wayne Ferreira in the third round, Michael Chang in the fourth round, Thomas Muster in the quarterfinals and Todd Martin in the semifinals.  In the final, he defeated fourth-seeded Michael Stich 6-1, 7-6, 7-5 to claim the championship.  In 1999, Andre was seeded second and didn't face another seeded player until the semfinals, where he downed Yevgeny Kafelnikov in four sets.  In the final, he won a grueling five-setter against seventh-seeded Todd Martin 6-4, 6-7, 6-7, 6-3, 6-2 to claim his second U.S. Open crown.  We mention these two different paths because when it comes to your education, it doesn't matter where you start but rather how you finish.  Maybe you feel like you're unseeded, the odds are against you and trying to earn a high school diploma at home might be too much.  Our self-paced accredited high school courses can help!  If you're tired after the equivalent of a long five-set match, it's ok to take a break and come back to your work when you are refreshed and ready to learn, and our staff is always available to help you.  On the other hand, if you come to us as an elite student, you might be interested in the AP courses we have among our online high school courses.  You also may wind up graduating early because you can work at your own pace.  Whatever your situation, we're here to serve you.  Enroll today and you can join Caroline Wozniacki, Mary Pierce, Andre Agassi and more than three million people worldwide who have taken courses with us!
