I have semester examination until 15th.this is the reason for i'm rare here.even i don't know about the poll of rolemodels until selecao82 said here.and many of steffi fans didn't surf on internet after her retirement,but we should learn them about net browsing if we have time.do you like this idea?

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

If you search on twitter with her name(or Andre's name), you can often get some news or links about her.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Steffi cleared our facebook hesitations.she didn't have any accounts outside of her website.and she don't have any comeback plans.so we should stop hoping comebacks .she did everything in her career and living a happy family life.really a perfect woman.the champion,a wife.a mother,a kind . Check her website for reading new post.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

I think it's pretty obvious that she would never consider a comeback. Of course we would love to see her on court again, but she has a life now and much more important things to care about than Tennis. She's 40 years old, almost 41. And even though she looks great, it would be silly to expect her to comeback and repeat what she did in 1988. She's not 19 anymore, we have to be realistic.

I also thought it was cool that she mentioned Andre's exhibition in Sao Paulo. I want to go sooo bad!

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

I never thought she'd come back, not even when she had just announced her retirement! I mean I always thought Steffi knows what she wants exactly.

No, camilia (a flower) is a nickname that was given to me by a friend 15 years ago, long story My lovely friends at Dinara's thread even made it shorter to Cami which I also like You'd be surprised at how many nicknames I have. People call me by my real name only at official places like work, uni, hosptials and so on and the only person among family and friends to use my real name is my father!
Hurricane God forbid! The sand storm resulted in 3 days of strong rain all over the UAE but not my city where it only rained a little

About the comeback, she doesn't need it, she already won everything possible to win, so why ? She definitely has nothing to prove, and she was lucky enough to be able to leave the right way, the FO win, N°3 in the world, at 30, perfect timing

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

I think that the career of an athlet has a begin and an end, like it or not, this is a good thing. I don't like old champions coming back, it usually means they don't have a life out of their sport and sometimes they look ridiculous. Thank God Steffi has a very happy life and doesn't need tennis anymore. People like Henin or Clijsters are in a different situation, they retired very young with many goals yet to be achieved. P.S. When I go on the tennis gallery in Steffi's site I get a message saying that I need javascript active and a new version of flash player to see the page. I have that, but I still can't see the page(only tennis gallery,anyway). Does any of you have the same problem?

Men won't stay alone, Hit for Haiti in Indian Wells, with...Steffi

(...and Navratilova, Davenport, Henin)
Apparently Graf/Davenport vs. Navratilova/Henin (=50 slams)
