Serena on Andre Agassi's drug use admission

"It's weird, I don't understand it, when I heard I, didn't know what to think and I still don't. But I don't believe it should define his career. A career is a whole timepiece, a whole period. That whole drugs thing freaks me out, I don't even know what crystal meth is. I've never seen it on the L.A. scene. Tennis is, for me, a pure sport. I get tested randomly all the time. I didn't do that drugs and wild life thing because of Venus. When I was younger, she was my protector, my bodyguard, my everything. She always looks out for me. She is such a good person. I couldn't have asked for a better older sister."

(Andre Agassi admitted to taking crystal meth in 1997 and failing a drug test).

It is so funny that Serena is basically supporting Agassi when she says that a moment in time should not define a career, yet Agassi was one of those who was of the view that Serena should be suspended. I wonder how many people made that connection. That all that adversity and everything she has not said a bad word against him and yet him with all his skeletons in the closet was calling for her to be suspended. Talk about people living in glass houses.

I actually took the time to scour the internet and find his quote.

obviously Serena is smarter than Agassi, everyone makes mistakes, and it´s easy pointing at someone else,the worse when the one is touched by scandal, but to acknowledge the own mistake and to apologize for it is a feature of a great personality. Serena has a great personality, but seems Agassi is this missing...
