Agassi, who is considered by many critics as one of the greatest tennis players of all time, often called his relationship with the singer as “a very special friendship,” yet it was evident that what the two had was more than friendship.

When Streisand came to support Andre during his games, all eyes were always on her as the public released a collective gasp after hearing her once mutter “One more, baby.”

In his autobiography, Agassi shared how much he was intrigued and fascinated by Barbara and her voice. He noted that they often laughed at the shock their affair caused but they didn’t care about their age gap and the people’s opinion about it.

Agassi wrote:

Dating Barbra Streisand is like wearing Hot Lava.

However, their union didn’t mean to last. After a few failed relationships, the tennis star met the love of his life, Steffi Graf.
