Who says the sport is short of characters?

With Andre Agassi around tennis is front as well as back page news.

Romance with Steffi Graf keeps the gossip columns busy too.

On court, opponents have their work cut out to deal with blistering returns, but the Agassi serve is an often underrated weapon.

It is the most improved area of his game, the benefits having yielded French, US and Australian Open titles as well as an appearance in last year's Wimbledon final.

One of only five players to have won all four Slams, his last three have come since recovering from world ranking of 141 in November 1997.
