Parents pressure changing sports


These past couple of weeks retired tennis star , Andre Agassi  has been all over the media. This attention came after information from his autobiography was released including a confession of a one-time abuse of crystal meth. An exert from his book was in this week’s Sports Illustrated where he proclaims his hatred for Tennis and that he has felt this way practically since he started playing. So then why continue to play the sport? “Besides loving my father and wanting to please him, I don’t want to upset him” that was the explanation Agassi gave for never quitting.
