    I enjoyed it. I recently wrote a column about getting to know Andre a little in the juniors, when he, Courier, Sampras and Chang were all coming up together.

    Only when Agassi was able to get away from Bollettieri -- that leather-skinned waster of talent who attached himself to his stars like a vestigial organ -- was he able to realize his potential.

    Kurt took me to dinner once, right after I interviewed at his paper. Great guy, even better writer. I'd always heard about his tennis career, and that he'd faced Agassi, but I'd never knew the whole story. Glad to see he's doing well.

    Great piece. Exactly the type of writing and story that newspapers need more of.
