PARIS (AP) - Former No. 1-ranked Marat Safin says Andre Agassi should give his titles back after confessing in his autobiography that he tested positive for a banned substance during his career and lied about it to the ATP.
Agassi admits in his book "Open" that he used crystal meth in 1997 and failed a drug test, a result he says was thrown out after he lied by saying he "unwittingly" took the substance.
Safin, who plans to retire this month, said in an interview with L'Equipe newspaper on Tuesday that Agassi should "give his titles, his money and his Grand Slam titles" back to be completely honest.
