Andre Agassi Responds To Former Rival Pete Sampras’ Comments On Agassi’s Alleged Drug Use

LAS VEGAS, Nevada --

In a new interview with Andre Agassi airing tomorrow, Access Hollywood’s Tony Potts broke the news to the tennis superstar that former rival Pete Sampras had spoken out about the claims in Agassi’s new autobiography “Open.”

In the book, Agassi alleges that he used crystal meth in 1997 and failed a drug test, then lied about how he “unknowingly” took the drugs.

Sampras, told KTBC-TV/FOX 7 in Austin, Texas, “I didn’t even know what to say. I respect him, he’s a friend of mine. He was my main rival in the ‘90s and would I tell him flat out he made a mistake, absolutely. I’d say, ‘What were you thinking?’ and to lie about it. But when I look at Andre in his mid-twenties to his late-twenties, he was like a different guy.”

When Potts read the comments to Agassi, he replied, “You know, while Pete and I spent a lot of time together, we didn’t really know each other. When there wasn’t a net between us, there was a wall between us.”

Agassi continued, “His caution and his words are appreciated because he’s probably learning this about me now for the first time.”
