Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Hope you are following adidas tennis tweets, looks like Steffi is seriously involved with adidas camp this time.
Also, not for certain that this is Steffi but interesting to note that when Darren Cahill is tweeting for adidas tennis, he ends his tweets as DC, Mats Merkel as MM and there a couple of tweets ending in SG which again think might be Steffi but not sure.

@adidastennis
another beautiful busy day at the @adidas_miCoach testing/filming day in #lasvegas ^SG http://ow.ly/i/usEM http://ow.ly/i/usEW

1st day in Vegas and the whole team came out this morning (who can name them?). More to come in the next days! ^SG http://ow.ly/i/u9he

A video of Steffi practising with AP (sorry too big to spell the whole name).
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sO3kD...e_gdata_player

And djul, I guess if this continues on a regular basis, who knows, may be I will plan on trip to Vegas to see her play live. At least will be better than settling down in Vegas (visited once and to be honest, did not like it, kept thinking how is Steffi living here but then we all know why she lives there.....).
Good crowd gathering to watch Steffi Graf practice with Nastia. ^DC http://ow.ly/i/urf8

Thanks Katie, forgot about Sven. Somehow can only associate SG with Steffi.

Love the reference of Steffi in this post. She refers to Steffi as 'Fabulous Graf' in most of her posts.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Don;t know if these links were posted...It's about Andre Agassi and his trying over the years to meet Steffi Graf and how all this happened:

This is originally done for Sports Illustrated in July, 20006 issue by Gary Smith and later reproduced in the Guardian and many others. One of the best sports profile but then Gary Smith is a great writer. Many times, had this thought whether Agassi's decision to write a book originated around the time of the article as it has the same flow as the book.

Here is the link to the original as it appears in SI.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Here is the part I like the most. Nowhere in the whole article is it mentioned that Steffi was present during the night of the interview and then this pops up almost towards the end:

Andre: I just hope the kids find something to pour all of themselves into because that's where the marrow of life comes from. If it's tennis ... wow, I'd take a deep breath. I'd have to hand it to Jaden if he did that. He'd have to have a mighty big pair of....

Steffi: It would work out, Andre. Just trust your instincts. You'd do it right.

Andre: Yeah ... but my instinct is to NOT trust myself.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Hi,

hope everybody is doing fine.

Just saw 2minutes ago on my tv this commercial for a Renault car and I think I recognized a very young tennis player in it :

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Thanks for that video djul, haven't seen that one before.
By the way, listening to Jim Courier talk on SI Podcast and Steffi gets mentioned sometime around 25 min mark (don't exactly remember the timing) and Jon Wertheim in what at least to me sounded sarcastic says how people say that a 42 yr old Steffi can give the current players a tough time to which Courier responds "Do you have any doubts about that?" and talks about her slice BH and how the current players don't know how to handle a slice BH. Thought that was nice of Courier.

I love watching video of her as a youngster for all the right reasons- all nobby knees and legs flying all over the place! And that determination. I think that's what I liked the best about her- she was DETERMINED. Lots of people (mostly women) thought she was a bitch, but I could tell she was just someone who knew at an early age how good she was, and a perfectionist not satisfied with anything. Her career must have been torture- and I know I would have stopped and smelled the roses more than once, while she was already sprinting to the next challenge. Oh how I miss watching her play when I see these screech-monsters with poor footwork at the top of the women's game. How long must we wait for another player to come along even close to Graf? I hope I live long enough, but something tells me I may never see it. Who knows.

Good to hear what the REAL tennis expert is thinking and good that it's "against" this journalist Wertheim, who probably never touched a racket in his life, and thinks America rules tennis.


Alfa, I am afraid it won't happen soon, even if I d like it too actually. I follow mens tennis a lot, because there are players I really like, root for, but on womens side...
