Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

i worked for me, but perhaps i did it quite soon after the link was posted. maybe it expires by now. it was about a photo shoot session of Stef, but it was in German, so I had no clue what it was about!

Did you read Candy's post on Steffi's facebook yesterday? She hurts for Tam's message and said she will not upload on youtube(truegreatsteffigraf). We should send replies to don't go for that.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

This is an interview with the person who maintains Wimbledon Grass court and the two players for whom he would return to the court he maintained to watch: Roger Federer and Steffi Graf.

"Will Seaward still visit the Wimbledon grounds when his tenure is up? He's not so sure: "As a spectator maybe, but I wouldn't say anything else. It would be unfair on Mr. Stubley to be looking over his shoulder every five minutes. He's very capable of doing the job."

And if he could return to the grounds to watch one last tennis match, which player, past or present, would he choose to see?

"I'd actually take Roger Federer on the men's side and Steffi Graf on the ladies," says Seaward, without even the slightest hint of hesitation."

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Does anyone know where to find the content (or even video) of Steffi introducing Gaby when Gaby was inducted in Hall of Fame? I would love to read/watch it....

Agassi had made it clear multiple times that it is not going to be Steffi, Gil Reyes may be but not Steffi for sure.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Hi steffiandbibi... I couldnt find much, except this excerpt from a Gaby fan who actually attended the event:

The ceremony was wonderful. Patrick (Rafter) and Gaby both looked incredible. They saved Gaby for last, which surprised me (I expected Patrick would get that honor) but also made me very happy.

Steffi said some wonderfully touching things about how she first played Gaby when they were 12 years old and that they first learned the language of competition before they learned their common language of english and that it wasn't always easy. But that, over the years, she saw from across the net and with Gaby on the same side of the net a player with incredible athleticism and sportsmanship, but also one with an impact in so many ways ... to fans, in helping children with charitable work, in giving back to the game in Argentina ... but that - of all the people Gaby has had influence on - she made the biggest impact on Graf herself.

And then Gaby got up and spent the first part of her speech talking about how Steffi made her a better player and acknowledging what an honor it was to have one of the best players in the history of the game be there to introduce her and speak on her behalf. Gaby was very choked up and had a difficult time speaking throughout her speech.

I was happy to be there. I wasn't close enough to high five her, sadly, but it was nice for me as someone who'd been a fan of hers throughout her entire career and even after her retirement to be there for that final cap on her tennis life.

The International Tennis Hall of Fame has it's own Youtube channel:

http://www.youtube.com/user/tennisfamer

Maybe, someday, we will find Steffi's speech there. Hopefully.
