Andre Agassi always has a reminder of his son with him as he steps onto the tennis court.

In an interview with WSJ. Magazine, the tennis pro, 53, was asked about his most prized possession, revealing that he treasures a necklace his 22-year-old son Jaden had made for him.

"I have a necklace my son made for me. It's a beaded necklace with these letters," Agassi shared.

"When he was four, he asked me to help him. [He said] 'I want to make this, I want to write, 'Daddy rocks.' I've never taken it off but it broke and it's getting [fixed.]"

Agassi shares his two kids, son Jaden and daughter Jaz, 20, with wife Steffi Graf.

Speaking to The Cut in 2014, Agassi said that he respected Graf “from a distance and marveled at her" early on. The tennis power couple, who have both since retired from the sport, went on to wed in 2001.

“What has transcended everything has been the common ground we share and our basic approach toward life. It’s better to be lucky than good sometimes,” Agassi told Parade of him and Graf.

“I don’t feel like I have any answer to how to have successful relationships, but I do feel overwhelmed with the joy that I feel every day.”

In January 2024, the couple rang in the new year together, posing for a photo that Agassi shared on Instagram. "With Love ❤️," he wrote in the caption.
