Gilbert Says Agassi’s Admission Does Not Tarnish His Tennis Legacy

By CHRISTOPHER CLAREY

Brad Gilbert was Andre Agassi’s tennis coach and regular traveling companion for nearly a decade. Gilbert, a voluble Californian and former leading player, helped Agassi rise to the No. 1 world ranking for the first time in 1995, then helped him rescale the summit after he had dropped to No. 141 in 1997.

But Gilbert said that the first time he was aware that Agassi had used the illegal drug crystal meth during that difficult 1997 season was when he read an early draft of Agassi’s autobiography last year.
