The level of tennis was really good, her FH was working pretty amazingly, but Lindsay for the first half of the match made a lot of mistakes, she wasn't really into it. Steffi made a rageous FH at a moment with a "YEEESSSS" to conclude it
Martina is still incredible at volleying and justine was justine, playing great, we quite didn't hear the sound of her voice. Navratilova, as expected, was the one who was talking and making jokes. She kept on telling Justine not to play on that FH !
There was a funny moment at a changeover with Steffi and Lindsay talking like 2 oldies about children (with the mic (that she lost twice while running) we could hear everything), Steffi ended the discussion with "they (kids) are into baseball, not tennis, NOT TENNIS."
Steffi spotted Tony Bennett in the crowd(apparently a star singer in the US ) and told "there is tony bennet, HE should have a microphone!"
Navratilova/Henin won the match 8-6. Steffi made more mistakes (the net) while the match lasted. Navratilova really seemed to be concerned to win it.
Davenport said at the interview at the net, that in the corner leading to the court they talked and Steffi thought she (Lindsay) was 40 (she is 33).
Great tennis, great fun.

The mens match was hilarious mostly thanks to Andre, first question when he came on court was :
"what do you think of your wife performance ?
-what do you mean... on the tennis court or...? "
BUT later he made a stupid joke about Sampras being a bad tipper, Pete was clearly pissed of, the mood after that changed, poor Rafa and Roger didn't know what to do.

(Sorry for the mistakes)

No Tracy once again asked if their kids play tennis with such parents (i think she heard this question something like a hundred times) , she answered somehow "they didn't want to push them etc"

Sampras and Agassi, it was strange, Pete from the begining of the match you just didn't hear him, then he imitated Andre, and Andre imitated him by looking for money in his pockets but there was nothing , before that he made a bad joke about Pete's hair too.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Well, what can I say ... everything that I could say about the match has already been said (that Steffi is still in excellent shape, that her forehand is still amazing, etc.), so that there is no point in me repeating it.

I did only watch the ladies' match, not the men's match. According to what you guys wrote about the men's match here, it seems that the fun has been spoilt by some not so funny humor, so that it's tolerable that I missed it.
Andre can be really funny at times, but on the other hand his jokes at the same time can get offending and embarassing for himself. It is a bit irritating that his sense of humor can get pretty immature at times, while otherwise he is a great and mature person.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Steffi looked great I thought - played uneven but looks wonderful.

Agassi - Sampras - vast exaggeration people and I did watch Believe it or not, the small universe of people who post on tennis message boards have a tendency to overreact wildly. As to the grief there was, I thought it was a two way street - Sampras started it, Agassi probably made one more sharp remark than he might have done, Sampras overreactedly wildly (big serve right at Agassi - is he 12?). It takes two to tango. At the end, Sampras could obviously see he overstepped as he hugged Agassi long and tight at the net (12?) and then made haste to say in the on court interview that he loves Andre:-)
Also said he was only cheap that once when Agassi and Gilbert saw him (ha ha - likely story - but confirms the Agassi account in the book is true), and that usually he's a good tipper but he knows Agassi is a very good tipper (ie acknowledging he doesn't tip on the Agassi level despite having a $28 million house on the market this week). Gimelstob was the interviwer and said something like "that's ok, we don't grade tipping on a scale, Agassi's the most generous tipper alive."

Does that sound like a major drama or upset? I think Agassi and Sampras are - as they've both said repeatedly - two totally different people and frankly they grate on each other 9as last night) but nevertheless decided long ago to get along (as last night).

Here's a report by the LA TImes journalist who was there - and since journalists always like to blow things up if at all possible, you can see by her failure to do so that it's was no big deal.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Not a fan of Sampras at all very boring here sure maybe Andre was just being honest i can imagine he is stingy anyhow Nadal should have being on partners with Sampras he is extremely boriiiinggggg

Its the same in his book he didn't say anything offensive just that Pete is so sensitive

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Legend touching Legend. I always wanted to see some sort of interaction between my two idols: Federer and Graf. A million thanks to the poster on youtube. You see Steffi kissing Roger. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_zrIITUBt0
