Tennis star Andre Agassi was a regular meth freak?

So much for pro athletes taking care of their bodies.

]]>Brooke Shields and Andre AgassiIn his new memoir, "Open," he reveals that he was using meth in the late '90s

"I can't speak to addiction, but a lot of people would

say that if you're using anything as an escape, you have a problem," he tells People.

Can’t speak to addiction? Doing crystal meth regularly? Excuse me?

The book not only details his drug use, but it also touches on his hair loss, his rocky marriage to Brooke Shields and how happy he is with his current wife, Steffi Graf.

Agassi says he was not concerned about revealing his drug use. "I was worried for a moment, but not for long. … I wore my heart on my sleeve and my emotions were always written on my face. I was actually excited about telling the world the whole story."

Wonder how this admission will affect his future commercial endorsements. Just hitting a bong at a party affected Olympic champ Michael Phelps' commercial future negatively

Would you buy a product that featured Agassi as a spokesman, knowing about his past meth use? 

And what does this to do his reputation as a tennis champ?
