Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Oh, that's nice, wish I could get a lesson from these two, especially on forehands jajaja. Didn't know they were so close to MaliVai, could someone tell me the whole story? BTW, and again completely off topic, I've been wondering, for no particular reason, the same about people like Evert, Martina or Mónica, so does anyone know about what are Steffi's beliefs, I mean, about religion? Does anyone know?

Agassi is close to lot of male tennis players and so Steffi as well (recently seen Andy Roddick refer to Steffi as 'Stef' which was pleasantly surprising), I just saw a recorded message of Agassi posted by MWKF, don't know the back story behind their friendship but MW has been helping kids for a long time just like Andre and know that Steffi and Andre have been strong supporters of his effort.
Peter Bodo did a tennis magazine interview after her retirement and asked her religious beliefs, believe she said that she does beleive in God and prays every night but lost faith in the religious system as she went to see the Pope as a teenager and people meeting Pope were divided into separate groups and placed in different rooms and later, she learnt that the groups were divided based on donation given to the church and the time each group got to spend with the Pope depended on the donation (something like that, don't remember the exact wording though).

yes,she does believe in God and prays every night.But she doesn't like show meetings that praying without heart and as a prayer reader.

Thanks for posting the source again!

Being a catholic myself, I can understand Steffi's disappointment and her decision very well. Me too often am wondering whether or not the attitudes and actions of the catholic clergy can still be considered as Christianity.

Not long ago we had a huge public scandal here concerning sexual abuse of institutionalized children in catholic orphanages. I don't know what is more disgusting, the incidents of abuse or the fact that the clergy tried to deny everything.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Look who makes it to the top 10 list for best one liners. Ironically, witty was the last word used to describe her and she dispelled the myth with just one line. This was even voted as the best comedic moment at Wimbledon this year.

Right, makes it even more endearing that she didn't hold back despite all that. Remember, reading a London news article from that time and the writer commenting on the same but in a negative way and saying may be she will need all the money to pay for the lawyers fee and to free her father.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

12 yrs since Steffi retired from tennis.
Like everything else, she knew when to retire.
As a tennis fan, miss her on court but as Steffi's fan, extremely happy for her and just want her to enjoy her life to the fullest as a mother/wife/daughter/sister just like every one else.

+1

She had ability and in form to win some more slams at that time,but our player doesn't play for records anywhere in her career.

I read so many other player fans also agree the difference b/w the tennis before and after her retirement.

But she found next steps in life. Marriage,Children,Charity works...etc!

She's not only an inspiration,but also a wife,a mother,a kind person and more.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Very nice Barilla ad with Steffi which made in 2004.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WERkfBB4UG8

Do you think the last menu "Barilla" had written by really Steffi's hand writing?

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Calimero(Max, a Steffi fanatic) posted this text yesterday on a Google group:
Quote:
Steffi Graf retired 12 years ago (1999).
And the Berlin Wall was built 50 years ago (1961).
what a coincidence?

First time I've seen this Barilla ad. Steffi looks beautiful here! Not sure though if that really is her handwriting.
