The eight-time winner of the Grand Slam tournaments, American Andre Agassi, admitted that in the first meeting he recognized a future star in 17-year-old Swiss Roger Federer. In 1998, they met at a tournament in Basel (Switzerland), and Andre won with a score of 6: 3, 6: 2.
“I want to say that the day I played with Federer for the first time, I realized that I was meeting with the greatest tennis player of all time,” – Sportskeeda quotes the words of Agassi.
In total, Roger and Andre played 11 matches with each other, and the Swiss won 8 victories in them.
In May 2017, Andre made his debut as a coach, joining the team of Serb Novak Djokovic. Not working well with the native of Belgrade, Agassi left his team after 10 months.
