Agassi has drawn criticism for goading Sampras into his impression and then unnecessarily taking a cheap shot by ridiculing his rival’s alleged frugality (an accusation that Agassi himself began in his autobiography “Open”).
On Monday, Agassi talked to ESPN.com’s Rick Reilly and offered an apology:
“It was out of line. It was inappropriate. The night was on fire. We were all having fun. I was trying to be comedic. I only had a split second to make a decision. I went for it and it fell flat. I was trying to get past it, but Pete didn’t really let me get past it. He didn’t really roll with it. I’ve texted Pete to ask him if I can apologize in person.
“The joke fell flat and I’m sorry. My hope was that the night was still enjoyable. My whole book is about living and learning, and I guess you never stop.”
