If you have been following the unraveling of Andre Agassi, one of our tennis greats, there is no doubt you have an opinion. If you haven’t been following, let me share the background of the story.
Andre Agassi, eight-time grand slam tennis champion. Philanthropist. All around nice guy. Married to another tennis prodigy, Steffi Graf. Kids. Smiles. A great story of a triumphant comeback. The whole squeaky clean image.
Until now. Andre Agassi’s autobiography reveals his admission to using crystal meth in the nineties, and subsequently lying about it after he failed a drug test. But get this; after testing positive for the substance, Agassi wrote to the ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) that it was all a mistake, and he had accidentally drank his assistant Skip’s “spiked” soda. And boy, they believed it! The case was thrown out.
