LONDON (AFP) – Former tennis star Andre Agassi has admitted the lion mane-style hairstyle he sported during the 1990s was actually a wig, in extracts from his autobiography published in British newspapers Saturday.
Agassi said he wore a hairpiece held together with pins in his first Grand Slam final, the 1990 French Open final, and blamed his concerns that it would fall apart for losing the match to Andres Gomez.
Before the match he prayed "not for victory, but that my hairpiece would not fall off", he writes...
"During the warming-up training before play I prayed. Not for victory, but that my hairpiece would not fall off.
"With each leap, I imagine it falling into the sand. I imagine millions of spectators move closer to their TV sets, their eyes widening and, in dozens of dialects and languages, ask how Andre Agassi's hair has fallen from his head."
A vivid emotional description of how one can be affected by hair loss and artificial hair restoration, like wigs and weaves. Andre suffered from male pattern hair loss before the advent of FDA-approved Propecia and modern medical treatments that help men and women prevent hair loss and restore their own living and growing hair.
