He used to destroy the competition with explosive power followed by a quick flick of his flowing mane. Now Andre Agassi is surprising fans and former opponents alike with his candid autobiography "Open," in which he admits that he hates tennis, the hair was fake, and, yes, he used crystal meth. Tennis star Andre Agassi joins Larry in studio to talk about the charmed life he never wanted.


Andre Agassi, author of "Open: An Autobiography" (Knopf). He has won eight Grand Slam titles and an Olympic gold medal in singles tennis.
