AGASSI SHAME; DRUGS.

TENNIS hero Andre Agassi has admitted using the dangerous drug crystal meth.

Writing in his upcoming autobiography, the eight times Grand Slam champion reveals he snorted the substance in 1997.

Agassi, 39, who quit tennis in 2006, says he was offered it by an assistant he names only as Slim. He writes: "As if they're coming out of someone else's mouth, I hear these words, 'You know what? F*** it. Yeah. Let's get high.' "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 just crossed."
