Andre Agassi says he always hated tennis, even though it's what made him rich and famous. But maybe that's not surprising, considering how his father used to browbeat him into hitting 2500 balls a day when he was seven years old, and later sent him off to a tennis academy, which Agassi calls a "glorified prison camp." In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge, we'll talk with Andre Agassi about the fine line between love and hate.
