Andre hints at his playing doubles with Steffi ain't gonna happen...

From AO interview...

Q. What does this mean for your camp now? Steffi gets on the court?
ANDRE AGASSI: : Yeah, she's not too pleased about that, but (laughter)... Hopefully I'll have 50 years with her to be mad at me about more things.

Q. A bet's a bet though, isn't it?
ANDRE AGASSI: It's going to be my responsibility to make it happen. I'm the one that said it, so... (Smiling).
I got to make it up to her somehow. Count on me to work on it.

Q. If you were a bookmaker in Las Vegas and you had to do the odds, Navratilova (inaudible) versus Graf-Agassi, what would be the odds?
ANDRE AGASSI: Yeah, I don't -- I assure you if we play, we don't have much chance. Definitely not.

Q. Does the surface matter?
ANDRE AGASSI: First of all, I don't play doubles. Secondly, if I did play doubles, I don't usually play against women. Thirdly, I could never aggressively hit at the woman. I just couldn't do it.

Q. So Steffi's right?
ANDRE AGASSI: On top of it, she's played probably just stroking the ball, hasn't played a match in years.

Why is that hinting they won't play? He's just saying Steffi isn't too happy about it and that they won't make such a great mixed double team...I'm sure Steffi keeps her promises

Darren Cahill has to shave of his hear....his wife wasn't too pleased about that either...but it will happen

I don't think she would play again either...

Inspiration is for amateurs

after sparkling some interest on the tennis fans, this is what they get.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.
