Andre Agassi drugs
In 2009, Agassi admitted to using the drug crystal meth and lying to the ATP to escape a ban in his autobiography Open. He said that he was introduced to the drug in 1997 and the moment when he was informed he had failed a drugs test. He described the moment he took crystal meth, which is a highly-addictive amphetamine. This was the time when his career was in freefall.
He was helped by his assistant, known as Slim, who was a drug-user. “Slim dumps a small pile of powder on the coffee table. He cuts it, snorts it. He cuts it again. I snort some. I ease back on the couch and consider the Rubicon I’ve crossed,” he said. “There is a moment of regret, followed by vast sadness. Then comes a tidal wave of euphoria that sweeps away every negative thought in my head. I’ve never felt so alive, so hopeful — and I’ve never felt such energy.”
