Before the men's singles final on Sunday afternoon, American School graduate and 1994 and 1999 U.S. Open champion Andre Agassi will be inducted into the U.S. Open Court of Champions. The U.S. Open Court of Champions is located at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, New York, and features large plaques with photos and career highlights of each inducted champion. The following is a description of Andre taken from this year's U.S. Open program: "Bold, brash and bigger than life, Andre Agassi splashed the great stage of the U.S. Open with a brilliant spectrum of color and charisma, entertaining and electrifying fans with his sizzling performance and singular personality. The man from Las Vegas was twice a champion in New York, showcasing an unrelenting ground game, unparalleled return-of-serve and unyielding determination. A fan favorite whose brilliance has left an indelible mark on this event and the sport of tennis, Agassi competed in an Open-era record 21 consecutive U.S. Open Championships–the ultimate showman at the ultimate show." We congratulate our alumnus, Andre Agassi, on this latest achievement and look forward to seeing and hearing him on CBS's telecast of the men's singles final on Sunday, September 9, beginning at 4 p.m. EDT.
