To sum up, she accuses Steffi of having deliberately lost a match, the double olympics SF, for them (so her = Kohde-Kilsch) not to win a gold medal, because Steffi's dad didn't wanted her (Kohde-Kilsch) to have gold...
First, I think it's ridiculous.
But god, the womand doesn't even look at her own performance. Says something like that 23years after. And says it on an interview, not face to face.
Poor woman.
I remember reading a long itw from her, published in 1985, or 86, you just can feel how she already felt pissed by the celebrity of boris becker, who became a star and not her and her new national rival...

Also she (Kohde-Kilsch) is taking away from the opponents they lost too.(Novotna and Sukova)
Both already had to suffer from Steffi in singles a lot, so to claim that even in doubles it was all about Steffi's (Peter's) mood
is pretty low.

I think she lost her mind a little bit.

Pathetic and easy way of getting attention.
I don't comment on this,because i agree with irma and Stef-fan.

But i remember that Steffi is the only tennis player to win at-least one gold(1988 singles),one silver(1992 singles) and one bronze(1988 doubles) in Olympics.

Off-course you know it.

I will find a way to sell it, or get a refund, or live with it
As not a fanatic,but i think Steffi never say(promise) anywhere that she will play definitely in Halle,next year.

and djul14,you have a great sense of humor (I know your reply is real,because you found a way to sell it).But i really lol when i read this and about your reply for a fan's article about her meeting with Steffi in Las Vegas airport.

Good day,
