Andre Agassi - 1,991 Nike Featurette
November 7, 2009
This short segment originally aired during a rain delay at the 1,991 French Open final. It's one of the rare few times you'll see Nike CEO Phil Knight talk about Andre, and the comments in the latter part of this video relates to Andre's pending appearance at Wimbledon. He had avoided the tournament for a few years which resulted in many critics falsely accusing him of dodging Wimbledon because of it's predominantly white clothing rule. The comments by Nike's creative director are interesting; as he states that Andre had a lot of input in the clothing line, both from a functional standpoint and style. I am not so sure Andre would agree today that he had a good sense of "style" back then. Ha-ha. Still though, his purple 91 French Open outfit was amongst one of my favorites from the Challenge Court line of Nike tennis clothing.
