You mean like Steffi Graf and Agassi?

Those two definitely :bounce: Unless their kids decide that they don't want to play tennis... I don't think Steffi and Andre would FORCE their kids to play.

Kim Clijsters's baby would be :eek::eek::eek: Awesomely good at it with all the physical attributes (height from father, mom's legs).

Venus. I mean those genes. If her children aren't tennis stars.. they will definitely be great at track!

none. it's rare that a sports star's child is ever as good as the parent.

Actually I don't think it's a given that the Graf-Agassi kids will be good athletes or players. Talent like theirs is quite rare, and I'm not convinced that it is indeed passed from one generation to the next.

With the amount of money that those Graf-Agassi kids will inherit, I doubt they'll have as much drive to aim for the top as their parents.

It'll probably be someone lower profile like Melanie Molitor was.

2 exceptions were in baseball, where (even without the juice) :tape: Barry Bonds would have accomplished more than his late father Bobby (himself a big star) and Ken Griffey, Jr. outshone his Dad, a good player.

I reckon Karatantcheva's kid will be pretty good. If it's a girl they can play doubles together :)

I think players like Sharapova, Williams sisters would rather have their children doing other things beside sport whereas a mediocre player who never won a slam (who still won one or two minor titles) would press their own dreams on their children.

Joachim Noah will be great, but since its a different sport we
can't know if he's better than his father.

Very true, but Yuri and Richard may have other plans :p

I don't think Clijsters or Davenport would want their kids to go into tennis either.

First one that popped to my mind was Kim. Great athletic genes she has and same for her bf.
