Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

I went to the interview last night with Rick Reilly. Reilly asked him if Brooke & Steffi had every met each other in person and he said no. He said Brooke once called the house and Steffi answered so he did what he had to do - he changed the phone # because he couldn't have that happen again.

"Brooke has called a few times at home, and Steffi left (the home) to run sometimes, so I've changed the (phone) number"
The Focus article is rather short, I will translate it later today.

Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi have sporting children

Former tennis pro Andre Agassi (40) and his wife Steffi Graf (41) obviously bequested their sporting genes to their children. Daughter Jazz Elle, who will celebrate her seventh birthday in October, plays tennis, Agassi currently revealed in a press conference at the US Open in New York.

His 8-year-old son Jaden Gil shows talent as a baseball player, the eight-fold grand slam winner continued.

Agassi showcased his autobiography "Open" in New York. On this occasion he indicated that he doesn't really like his first wife, actress Brooke Shields, to be near to him. „Brooke called us at home a few times, and Steffi every now and then answered the phone, so I asked for a change of the number.“

Thanks for the translations

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

The only other thing he said was in relation to a story from when he was a kid. He said that the only way he could get a break from practicing was to purposely hit the ball off the frame of his racket and hit it over the fence so then he would have a few minutes to rest while his father went to get the ball and bring it back. Reilly asked if Steffi could purposely hit a ball off the frame and he said "I don't know but she is good at other things...but that's for another show not this one."

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

He made a joke too in an interview on his book tour last year when the interviewer asked him how often he still plays tennis and if he ever plays Steffi in the backyard. He said are we still talking about tennis?

Had not realized this - if Rafa wins this USo, he'll be joining a club whose only current members are the Agassis:
