He is second-born in the family

Philip is the second born in the family. He has an older sister Rita who was born in 1960. She tied knot to tennis player Pancho Gonzales with whom she shares one son Skyler

Warned his brother several times not to take pills provided by their father

Andre, in his autobiography, revealed that his father, Mike, a former Olympic boxer, used to give him illegal amphetamines before playing, and he used to take them. 

His elder brother Philip warned him several times not to take pills provided by their father because he knew that the pills were not simply caffeine but speed. 

He also asked Andre to promise that he was not going to take any pills from his father. He was tested positive for methamphetamine in 1997. Andre described his father to be violent. 

Tennis was not what he wanted from an early age, but it was something he was forced upon him by his father. He was tortured and lived in fear his whole life.
