Andre Agassi's career in pictures
Andre Agassi stunned the tennis hierachy with his fashion sense
Brash and bratty, the antithesis of American rival Pete Sampras, Agassi initially struggled to turn style into substance. He reached two Grand Slam semi-finals in 1988, but it was another four years and three final defeats before he got his hands on a major trophy.

The American public's suspicion of Agassi was summed up in his 1989 US Open quarter-final against 36-year-old Jimmy Connors. As Connors threw the ball up to serve, a fan shouted: "You're a legend, he's a punk."

And despite the critics increasingly questioning his attitude, Agassi went out and made an advert for Canon in which he uttered the tagline: 'Image Is Everything'.
