Steffi had relationships with a professional German Motorcycle rider for years and the German tennis player Alexander Mronz before that, so she had 2 well known relationships. Irma can correct me on Mronz if I am wrong, but I read it somewhere. Stubbs was together with Graf? What evidence do you have of that or is it just some rumor? Also why is her marraige to Andre 'weird'? They seem happy and have 2 kids, nothing too weird about it to me.Robert1 said:Because that seems to be the only relationship Graf had before this weird marriage with Agassi. Stubbs was together with Graf and later with Raymond.
it's all based on some dumb comment her father made at the end 92 that he paid michael b and so that relationship was fake and then because stubbs was often seen at steffi's matches. people started to make a rumour that they must have been in a relationship (and as said steffi was linked to many people so why not women too)raquel said:Steffi had relationships with a professional German Motorcycle rider for years and the German tennis player Alexander Mronz before that, so she had 2 well known relationships.

We were in London when Maria was 'outed'. Basically it was the trashy papers that ran sensationalistic headlines and pics on the front pages! I kept a copy but can't find it now amongst all the tennis junk! LOL. Although I shouldn't call in junk.
Yes, your hunch about Maria & Darlene was right. I even have a video of their Wimbledon final in 1959 when Maria beat Darlene - and it is rather cute but funny... coz after the match Darlene kept planting kisses on Maria and grabbing her. The commentator made a funny comment about what a great sport Darlene was kissing her opponent after suffering a loss. But Darlene just kept right on kissing and grabbing Maria and after a couple of times you could tell Maria was getting uncomfortable!!!!! LOL

Stubbsy-unless someone admits to being lesbian OR is actually seen in bed with another woman what all those people "know" is merely rumour, conjecture, and hearsay. In other words, any newspaper printing an accusation would face one mother of a lawsuit.Consider this guys, how many tennis players are on tour, how many people are connected with players. I mean, family, friends, coaching staff, staff and people at the tournaments, hotel staff etc. How come so many people remain silent, why do people not take photos, go public to the papers? How do all these players, and some of the them big names, manage to hide this secret life you accuse them of living?
tennisvideos said:Exactly Rollo. There are lots of cover ups in world sports, hollywood etc. Much of the time it is common knowledge, but not many people dare to print it due to the lawsuit issue.
And stories that daddy didn't allow Steffi a BF and did everything to keep the men away so that he could keep his influence.Robert1 said:I know someone who is in the Berlin Tennis Club in which Graf was entered, too, and this club member said that it is true, that Mronz got paid by Peter Graf to be around in order to stop roumors of S.Graf being a lesbian.
no she did not remember himraquel said:Who did Steffi remember Irma? Mronz?
