Storyboard Text

  • Characterization of protagonist
  • Characterization of antagonist
  • Theme
  • The protagonist is Andre because he is the main character in the book. He is a well-behaved kid at the beginning of the story but later in the book, he changes into a very naughty kid. He is a dynamic character because in the beginning, he listens to his father and he doesn't disobey him when he makes him hit 2,500 tennis balls a day and go to the Nick Bollettieri camp. Then when he gets there, he starts smoking weed and drinking alcohol. This is where he starts going downhill with his behavior.    
  • Imagery
  • I need you to lay down for on your stomach for me.
  •  The antagonist is Andre's father, Emmanuel, because he does some nasty things to other people and tells Andre not to tell his mother. He points a gun at a driver because he was mad at him and another time he gets out of his car and has a fight with another driver. He is a static character he stays the same way throughout the book; he is just a mean and scary person. He only changes a little when he cries near the end of the book because Andre told him that he is a professional tennis player. 
  • Setting
  •  The central message of the book, "Open" by Andre Agassi is about his childhood and how he grew up to become a professional tennis player. It also talks about the decision he had to make throughout his life like drugs and what friends he should hang with. It also talked about the hard work he had to put in in order to become a professional tennis player like how his dad made him hit 2,500 tennis balls a day and the exercise workouts he did with Gil. Gil is his personal trainer.
  • Foreshadowing
  • In the book, it says, "In and out and around, he maneuvered the needle, until my eyes filled with water. Finally he hit the spot. Bull's-eye, he said,"(5). This shows imagery because the words are descriptive enough to create a clear picture that Andre is getting a cortisone shot. It also shows that the shot really hurt Andre because it said that his eyes were filled with water which means he is about to cry.  
  • In the book, it says,"We spend hours at the pool, an instructor teaching us about wet suits and tanks and masks,"(271). They are taking this class because Brooke wants to go scuba diving with Andre on their honeymoon which is in the British Virgin Islands. The setting is the pool because this is where the scene takes place.
  • In the book, it says, "I hand him my soccer uniform. He walks onto the field and throws the uniform at the coach's chest," (57). This shows foreshadowing because by him throwing the uniform at the coach's chest is a clue that he is angry. It also represents that Andre won't be playing soccer again because he just whipped it right at the coach.
