I keep seeing Steffi's name written as Graff.... and it's not like Kelly at the checkout counter at Kmart is spelling it that way, it's done by tennis fanatics on tennis pages.

Does anyone know where that is coming from?? Was there ever a Steffi Graff who also played, and maybe I missed those occasions when she was on TV, failing to recognize her existence? ...she must be out there somewhere.

Who knows what goes on in some people's minds? I once met a guy (and I swear that I'm not kidding you) who thought that the Rolling Stones are a soccer team from England. After that nothing surprises me anymore.

But surely that is what Chris was referring to when she always used to talk about "the Steffi Grafs".

She was really meaning Steffi Graf, Steffi Graff, would-be Stephi Graf (Stephanie Rehe, who was dating her brother Michael Graf) and all the "millions of girls just like her in America" mentioned by the inimitable Tracy "Awesome" Austin.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Kelly at the Kmart checkout counter gets around. And I heard she isn't a good speller! ;)

Then again maybe these are German fanatics, remembering the great Eva Pfaff, who had two f's at the end of her name!
