Yes, and she was the only person in the world not to like her "muscular" legs.
I found this other interview in german: http://kurier.at/freizeit/leute/2018757.php

Is there something Steffi didn't tell the world?

Of course. The Americans have no right to claim her

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Mrs. Andre Agassi can be claimed as an American but not Steffi Graf, the tennis player.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

No, she can't, tennis player or not, she is not American ! Half French if you're insisting


Just read this on the WTA website, Judith Wiesner, yes if you followed Steffi's career you know her, this 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 opponent, who managed to take Steffi 3sets...in 11 defeats :

Q : You played during an amazing era… who was your toughest opponent?
JW: Steffi Graf, for sure, was the best player of that time. I think I had a very good rivalry with Steffi and enjoyed our matches. I mean, I never beat her, but I knew what she was doing! (thank god you knew) Whereas against someone like Martina Navratilova… I could have never gotten a set off her. It's strange, I played Gaby Sabatini only once or twice, but I played Jana Novotna a lot. I got to play Chris Evert and was still around when Venus was just coming through.

She knew how to play close with Steffi in many of their matches, but Steffi was always better when it mattered,, even when she wasn't playing her best like at the us open 1996 or even in Leipzig (but Steffi was also injured there and withdraw from the semi)
I guess Wiesners stats in head to head against Steffi are not so bad for a player of Wiesners caliber.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

^^No way !


I saw in the pictures thread Steffi with Cirstea, it's not the 1st time we saw her with a young player, what is she doing, only training with some of the girls from the team Adidas or has she a role (in the team) ?

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Even Agassi hits with the male players training at the Addidas camp but not sure if Steffi and Agassi are officially involved though. Since Addidas sponsors Agassi's school and Gill and Cahill are involved as well, they don't mind spending some time with the players.

They just wish she was american. In that case we would not have any discussions about who is the GOAT.
