Early in the 1990s, Andre Agassi confessed to having a major crush on Steffi Graf in an interview with former player and commentator Vijay Amritraj. Even so, he made numerous unsuccessful attempts to contact her.

After some time, the American got married to actress Brooke Shields in 1997. But in 1999, the couple filed for divorce. At that point, the eight-time Grand Slam winner made another attempt to win over Graf, and he was successful this time.

In 2001, Agassi and Graf finally tied the knot. Since then, the happy couple has raised their two kids in Las Vegas. In a recent Almost Famous podcast episode, Barnaby Slater chose to read aloud the section in which Agassi disclosed specifics about how he and his coach Brad Gilbert organized their 1999 approach to the icon.

Andre Agassi took off his shirt on the court in an attempt to impress Graf after Heinz made them practice together for a while. But Agassi said that was just not her thing at all. After the practice, they did converse for a while, and things got worse from then on.
