Graf gives birth three weeks early

October 27, 2001

<br />FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Steffi Graf gave birth to a healthy son three weeks early, and father Andre Agassi attended the birth.

The baby, Jaden Gil, was born at Valley Hospital in Las Vegas on Friday and weighed 5 pounds, 7 ounces, Graf's marketing firm said Saturday.

``This is the most proud day of our lives,'' the two tennis stars said in a statement. ``We are thankful for this wonderful gift and are excited to begin our new lives as parents.''

Mother and son were doing well and were able to leave the hospital the day after the birth, the statement said.

Graf and Agassi married in a private ceremony Monday. They had previously announced their son was expected in early December. It is the first child for both.

Agassi, 31, and Graf, 32, began dating after each won the French Open in 1999. Graf, a seven-time Wimbledon champion, retired in 1999.

Agassi was previously married to actress Brooke Shields. It is Graf's first marriage.

The couple recently bought a $23 million home in the San Francisco Bay area. They announced in July they were expecting a baby.

Graf said last week that she wanted to get back to tennis after the birth and added that she can imagine her son will also play: "I think he will inherit a certain sporting ability."

Does this mean a comeback? or just playing out the back door with Andre!!

she made very clear that she doesn`t return to the wta, she didn`t even say that she will play more as before she got pregnant, only that maybe she could play some exhibition in the future but nothing was planned

For Martina N. the comeback was o.k.<br />But not for Steffi, I think. This is a new chapter in her life and she'll enjoy it (hope so). <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

I'll call her son JeeGey. What sounds really horrible is 'Jaden Gil Agassi-Graf'. Don't know if anyone on this planet ever will call him by his full name ... <img src="eek.gif" border="0">
