WADA chief wants ATP to explain Agassi drug case

WADA chief wants ATP to explain Agassi drug case

The president of the World Anti-Doping Agency wants tennis authorities to "shed light" on Andre Agassi's admission that he used a banned drug and escaped a suspension by blaming his positive test on a spiked drink.
WADA president John Fahey says he is disappointed by the revelations in Agassi's upcoming autobiography. He says Agassi is a role model who should alert youth to the dangers of doping.
Agassi said that he used crystal meth in 1997. He said he lied to ATP Tour officials to explain his positive test, claiming he accidentally drank from a soda spiked with meth by his assistant.
Agassi said the ATP accepted his explanation and dropped the case.
Fahey said Wednesday that WADA expects the ATP "to shed light on this allegation."
