Talking Andre & Steffi set for mixed doubles debut

I don't know if this has been posted already.

Andre & Steffi set for mixed doubles debut
Tuesday, 21 January, 2003
by Tim Brimblecombe

Former women's world No.1 Steffi Graf will play mixed doubles with husband Andre Agassi at this year's French Open if he wins the Australian Open.

And after Agassi's 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 win against Frenchman Sebastien Grosjean in the quarter-finals, tennis fans are just two Agassi victories away from seeing the ultimate 'love match' come to fruition.

In an exclusive audio interview with former Australian champion Mark Woodforde on the Australian Open's official website, www.ausopen.org, Agassi said his wife must play doubles with him in Paris if he wins a fourth Australian Open title at Melbourne Park.

"For the record, and you're the first to know this, if I win here Stef has to play doubles with me in Paris," Agassi said when asked who his dream mixed doubles partner would be. "You can print that and I'll hold you to it."

Agassi and Graf were married in Las Vegas in October, 2001, and should they team-up in Paris, will bring a combined total of 30 Grand Slam singles titles to the court.

Graf retired in 1999 during which she won the French Open for a sixth time to take her career Grand Slam titles to 22 and if Agassi is successful in Melbourne it will be his eighth major.

Graf previously played mixed doubles with former world No.1 John McEnroe at Wimbledon in 1999 when they reached the semi-finals.

Go Andre WIN THIS THING!

I see a divorce

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Why would she play with him ONLY if he wins the AO ? It seems weird to me....Is that story true

Sounds fishy....

I think that it´s true. This should be major headlines in Germany soon as we´ve just woke up and when everybody in the press here translated the Australian Open homepage story, what a pressure this will be for Agassi to win it

Well, I think that we will see a Ferrero-Agassi semis and that will be the test to make this mixed doubles happen. I think that Roddick has a big chance to make a junior-senior US final happen and I doubt Agassi will loose.

This match in Paris could definetly be the highlight Grand Slam match this year

I wonder if Steffi knew what she said agreeing on that. Having in mind that she denied comeback rumours each time.

By the way, I think she turned her back on the public completely. Channel7 wants her to talk to them each year in Andre-matches, she refuses. German TV tries to get her to the phone each time, she refuses. She refuses comeback matches for charity. She refuses comments on female tennis. I doubt she likes the public attention this match would cause ?!

Well I don't think Andre would lie. I think IF he does win this, it's legit, it will happen

BTW, Martina Navratilova is still playing mixed doubles. Just imagine a mixed doubles match involving Martina N/??? vs. Andre/Steffi!
