Agassi's book, Open, details his descent into drug use, as well as his hair loss, his troubled marriage to Brooke Shields and the love he eventually found with his current wife, Steffi Graf.

Agassi, honored at the 23rd Annual Great Sports Legends Dinner for the Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis at Manhattan's Waldorf Astoria Monday night, tells PEOPLE he, wife Steffi Graf, son Jaden, 6, and daughter Jaz, 4, flew from their Las Vegas home to catch the final game in Yankee Stadium, in great seats, of course.
