Celebrity tennis fans

Which famous persons play tennis or are known to be interested in tennis?

Here are some politicians that I can think of:

Former German president Richard von Weizsäcker
Former German chancellor Gerhard Schröder
Boris Yeltsin
George Bush Sr.

There are probably many more.

Matthew Perry used to play, didn't he?

I remember during an Andrew Murray match last year, all the shots of Sean Connery in the stands.

Yeah, I believe he was a pretty good tennis player. He competedl in the national (canadian) competion.

Hmmm, are all those celebrities REAL tennis fans or are they just attending a match because it gives them world wide PR?

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)
