Andre Agassi thinks his memoir is best left closedThe eight-time slam winner, Andre Agassi, recently confessed that he took crystal meth in 1997 when his career and private life were spiraling out of control. One of the most admired and respected names in the world of tennis suddenly shocked the world by disclosing this fact.

In his autobiography, Agassi admitted taking crystal meth in 1997 and had failed a drug test which today would undoubtedly have seen him banned for two years.

It is believed that the Association of Tennis Professionals, the governing body of the men’s professional sport, avoided a major embarrassment and a serious blow to the sport’s integrity by taking no action against the eight-time champion.
