Agassi...eye shadow leads to greatness?

A great read about one of my childhood heros...

The first time Carillo saw Agassi play, he was wearing blue eye shadow.

"I kid you not, blue eye makeup," Carillo recalled, laughing. "He was 15, I think, and I was visiting Bollettieri's academy and Nick Bollettieri said to me, `Mary, you gotta see this kid.' Andre had long streaked hair, and was hitting every ball as hard as he possibly could. He was quick and nimble, and even though the balls were going all over the place, in the fence, everywhere, he was striking such a clean ball it was clear he had huge potential."
