iafrica.com - Former German tennis champion Steffi Graf, who married US tennis pro Andre Agassi on Monday, gave birth to a baby boy in Las Vegas Friday, the tabloid Bild reported today.

The baby, whose name was not known, weighed 2.6 kilograms and measured 50 centimeters. He was born three weeks prematurely in a private clinic in the American gambling capital as Agassi looked on.

Because of the wedding and the impending birth, Agassi had decided not to take part in the Basel tournament which started on October 22.

Graf (32), who retired from competition in 1999 after winning the Roland Garros French Open, started dating Agassi (31) at the same tournament in which the American won the men's competition.

Agassi and Graf said in a joint statement after their wedding: "We are so blessed to be married and starting this chapter of our lives. The privacy and intimacy of our ceremony was beautiful and reflective of all we value."

It was the first marriage for Graf. Agassi was married to actress Brooke Shields for two years. The couple divorced in 1999. - AFP
