'I hate tennis': Andre Agassi's book adds to his tale

Washington, Oct 29 (AP) So much of Andre Agassi's life has been spent in the public eye - the various highs and lows, on and off the court, during his transformation from tennis brat to elder statesman - that it was possible to wonder how much more there was to be said about it all.

Plenty, it turns out. Excerpts of Agassi's upcoming autobiography published yester day by Sports Illustrated and the Times of London contain graphic depictions of his use of crystal meth, an account of how he wriggled his way out of a suspension by lying to the ATP Tour after failing a 1997 drug test, and the jarring contention that he always hated tennis "with a dark and secret passion" because of his overbearing father.
