They seem to be from the shoot for the Vogue story last winter. A lot of nice photos - they should use this photographer again!

Thanks for that. Steffi's cover placed not only under top-32,but also top-10.

According to my fanship research,Steffi planned to take rest for some time,if she didn't make good result at wimbledon,because she still suffering from her dad scandal at the time,but She won the championship amazingly .

Previously I hate SI only because of there is biased Frank Deford.anyway,Finally i stop hating SI.

Welcome back,may be you are busy these days.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Thank you all for the news and pics!

Although they've won world aclaim as tennis players, the celebrity couple says they don't consider themselves runners.

"At one point few years ago, we were talking about could I do it? One day, I would have liked to run a marathon, but physically I'm not there anymore," says Graf.

Agassi politely disagreed with his wife.

"To say she can run is an understatement," says Agassi. "I know she can run, I've been chasing her my whole life."
how sweet!

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Critic (from 1998):Tennis player Steffi Graf says she quit the Roman Catholic Church for "personal reasons." But others say that she could have been one of the thousands of Germans who have left their churches to save on taxes. Since the days of the Weimar Republic, Germany has collected a tax from members of organized religion to fund those churches. Only members of unrecognized faiths, such as Islam or Scientology, are exempt. The tax is now 8 percent or 9 percent of a person's income. But those who aren't members of a church don't have to pay, prompting many to leave their churches.

Real fact and answer:
Peter Bodo(Tennis Magazine Interview in 2000) : Do you believe in God?
Steffi Graf:Yes.I pray every night.But I did have a disillusioning experience when I was 18.One of my sponsors gave the (Catholic) church a car so they could get an audience with the Pope.So we went to the Vatican.They put all the people who were going to meet the pope in different rooms,and he went from one of them to the other,reading words off a piece of paper.
There was nothing about religion coming across,other than how much the church appreciated the donation and how important it was for the church and business to work together.I was surprised and I was disappointed
;I expected something coming from the heart.

Bad job on researching information. The church tax is 8% or 9% of the income tax, not of the income. And people with high income have several ways to reduce their church tax debt significantly, down to 2-3% of the income tax.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

I've found it amazing (years ago, while at school, I was young, innocent and everything you know) to hear that actually a church tax does exist in Germany and quite all the sandinavian countries.
