Teaser Tuesday: Open -- Andre Agassi

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Just do the following:

* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

"I hate all the junior tournaments, but I hate nationals most of all, because the stakes are higher, and they're held in other states, which means airfare, motels, rental cars, restaurant meals. My father is shelling out money, investing in me, and when I lose, there goes another piece of his investment."

From Open by Andre Agassi, which I started last night during the first round of the Australian Open.

Interesting. I haven't read a lot of memoir, but maybe this one should be on my tbr list...

My teaser this week is creepy but funny! Here's a link.

Wow! I can't imagine being under that kind of pressure. That would be frightening! I've never been a tennis fan...but but the photo on the cover of that book makes me want to read it. Here's my first Teaser: http://ameliorationofang.blogspot.com/2010/01/introducing-teaser-tuesday.html
