AGASSI CLAIMS SUBSTANCE TO MATCH HIS STYLE AT LAST

Andre Agassi has softened his serve when it comes to image.

"I had so much notoriety before I really accomplished great things," he acknowledges in an interview with Esquire magazine."For me to be doing Nike commercials and Canon commercials and never winning a Grand Slam tournament, that left me with a bad rap - all image and no substance."

Agassi won Wimbledon in 1992 for his first Grand Slam title. He has since won two more Grand Slam tournaments, last year's U.S. Open and this year's Australian Open.

He said he also has been enjoying his romance with Brooke Shields and looking forward to a long tennis rivalry with Pete Sampras.
