Bia, Video link to the same interview and Steffi looks great.
Here is the whole interview (with google translation and so bear with me).
Stefanie Graf just play three interviews with television stations. An hour in a chair in the spotlight, it looks hot. She apologizes, gets up and takes the air out of the window. It is impressive, very elegant in his gray trousers, a pink blouse and white waistcoat. But feels nervous. She does not likes the media obligations and it shows. She asks if we can leave the window open. Then changes his mind when the first question and returns the close. The interview begins. She smiles and relaxes ...
Time: Roland Garros, this is your first Grand Slam victory in 1987, and also your last, in 1999. What memories will you return?
-Stefanie Graf: 1999 is probably my strongest memory. Not only because it was my last victory, but because I was filled with many emotions during this final against Martina [Hingis]. I conducted a set of anything. She had made the break in the second. Then there was the controversy about a ball on the line. I have memories of the public who was behind me. Her support gave me the energy to follow through in that final. I had tough matches in previous rounds against Lindsay Davenport and Monica Seles. It's still a special moment.
- These feelings are with you they still when you return to Roland Garros?
- I can not say that I feel them again. But I'm glad to revisit the place. Three years ago, I went back on the court during the women's final and I handed the trophy. There were plenty of people involved in the tournament for a long time, I know well. It was nice to see all these familiar faces.
- Your track record is staggering: 107 titles including 22 Grand Slams, two Olympic titles. A new Steffi Graf seems impossible. Why?
- These seven or eight years, the best have struggled with injuries. Different players have dominated for some time before being affected. Some have retired and then returned. Most have the weapons to threaten others. It became much harder to dominate.
-In men, however, there are three that dominate ...
- It's impressive to follow men's tennis. It's just fascinating. I watch it on TV and I have the chance to speak with Andre, ask him what he thinks of tennis today. It's just a marvel. Their talent, their physical capabilities are simply outstanding. Federer, Djokovic, Nadal, they have no weakness. And they have a different style, which makes their exciting confrontations. They are so pushed each other the past three years it is hard to imagine a better standard than men's tennis shows right now.
- Can we compare what Roger Federer has done with what you yourself have done?
- I do not reason in terms of accomplishment. I have always sought above all to push myself. But the records and have never been very important to me. When I look at a player, I look first at his game, but in any case I'm not trying to compare what he does with my charts.
- You give to children in difficulty. Is it a need that you always lived?
- When I was younger, I felt the need to make myself useful in different ways, to have an impact on causes that are dear to my heart. I was linked to WWF because I am always concerned about the environment and animals. I was raised with the notion of respect for others and the world around us. Then I got involved in a foundation for sick children in Germany. It was very hard for me to meet with doctors in Hamburg, and see the work we were doing with these traumatized children. It was so hard that I felt I needed to create my own foundation [Children for Tomorrow, for the victims of war]. This has not always been easy, knowing that I live in the U.S. and the seat of my foundation is in Germany. I created it before meeting Andre, and he also had his own foundation [Andre Agassi Foundation for Education]. But we've both chosen to help children because they are the future. They are the hope. And I hope it can make things happen.
- How do you compare your present existence with your life as a champion?
- That seems far away. It's been 13 or 14 years that I stopped. But this seems an eternity. My life is so filled with two children to raise and all the work we do, Andre and I, with the children of the foundation. I'm very lucky. And when I think about my career in tennis, I have no regrets. I lived many beautiful things but I am very happy with the life I lead now.
- What are the lessons of your experience as a champion you use today?
- Tennis is a lesson in life, it provides many lessons. I do not even know where to start. It is only a short, with so many decisions to make. This forces you to be responsible, organized, disciplined. There are so many things in my career where I draw. Travelling around the world opens your eyes. We discover other cultures, you learn other ways to interact with people. This is instructive.
- Some people think that becoming a champion or a champion, you have to be obsessed with its objectives. Do you share that view?
- This requires extreme dedication, absolutely. Dedication and discipline too. But it's like everything in life. It happens anywhere in life, you get nothing if we do not engage fully and passionately in what we do. And in tennis, because it's an individual sport, you have to make choices for yourself. And sometimes it's difficult. There are so many people who gravitate around you to try to help you get there. But if you do not resort to external assistance, you may feel very alone.
- What advice would you give to young girls who dream of a career in tennis?
- Every human being is so different that it is difficult to give advice. It depends so much on the circumstances of life. I would tell them to try to get maximum enjoyment and prepare to work hard, it will be a difficult and demanding life on an emotional level. It is a sport that lasts very addictive twelve months a year. I would say that the journey is not easy but we can find a good balance between life on and off the court.
- Two years ago, Andre published his autobiography "Open". How did you feel that your love story will be revealed to the world?
- (She laughs.) I watched all these years. (She searches for words.) I saw him get involved, to delve into his writings, I have followed the development of his book. It was a very intense period for him. I did not contribute much. I felt that this was a project which he thought deeply. And I am proud of what he did. As he says in his title, there is an openness that I admire in him. I reinforced his need to convey and say things. I was OK with that. Even if it was not easy for me. (Her voice begins to shake.) I do not feel necessarily comfortable with that. But the way he wrote certain passages in our history ... You know ... I tell myself I'm the luckiest girl on earth.
- If you were to start, would you change anything?
- No. There is of course difficult moments in everyone's life, but it is these moments that make you move, that you are as a person and make you become who you are. I would not change anything, and I am happy to be where I am.
Looks like the link is not working and so just posted the whole interview.
