It’s amazing how the mighty can fall so quickly. Andre Agassi published his autobiography today, which revealed how he lied to get out of a drugs ban. Agassi tested positive in 1997 but managed to convince the ATP that he had not done so knowingly, blaming it on his former assistant who was a known user of crystal meth. At the time Agassi was suffering his worst year as a professional tennis player, with his ranking dropping down to 141 at one point. He has confirmed the details of the letter he wrote to the ATP professing his innocence.
