The International Tennis Hall of Fame has it's own Youtube channel:

Maybe, someday, we will find Steffi's speech there. Hopefully.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

A sad story of how a project of "Steffi Graf's statue" never got materialized and how the original idea was just left to a snap shot. The painting looks great, hope it still can be done one day.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Found this great write-up about Steffi on a personal blog, couldn't agree more.

"Her art (she was often referred to as a ballerina on court) was tennis. I never aspired to be a tennis player. Among the many sports which I’m terrible at, tennis would rank right up there with beach volleyball as a sport where I’ve been at the venue and held the equipment, but never attempted to play (I’ve been on tennis courts and beaches and I’ve held a tennis racquet and a volleyball!!). But my love and respect and admiration for Steffi went beyond her game. I admired her as a person.

While in college, my best and I would have long discussions about how artists, their work and their personal lives, should be kept separate. How its only their art and the pleasure and satisfaction you derive from it that matters. We were very philosophical about it all. But the fact remains that some people go beyond your self-created barrier around their art and suck you into their personal world of perfection in such an astonishing way that you don’t resist. You don’t want to resist. You revel in the idea that perfection like that exists. That there are humans who’re brilliant at what they do, geniuses even, and are also good people. Call it pessimism or cynicism about the world we live in, but this perfection belongs to a rare species. They don’t come around too easy. Steffi Graf is one such specimen (I use the word with utmost reverence)".

As far as i know, the English versions of a Steffi Graf book other than what u mentioned (which I dont like at all! the author is bad!) are only those for kids.
German versions there are a few, but they are more pictorials. Lots of pictures, very little story.
I have a couple of them. One is by Doris Henkel (1992).
