I was zapping though the TV channels this morning and stopped by at CNN International. I caught the final minutes of an interview with a man and a woman. The man was Andre Agassi, sure enough, I recognized him immediately. No idea who that attractive blond lady was, though.
Finally, the totally obvious dawned on me: The woman was nobody else then Agassi’s wife, Steffi Graf.
Knowing that Steffi Graf has been residing in Las Vegas with her husband for many years after she retired from the sport, I probably hadn’t seen a picture of her for quite some time.
Although it would be flat-out wrong to say that Graf hasn’t aged well, I did not recognize her at first sight – in spite of the fact that one saw her picture on TV, in the newspapers and (towards the end of her career) on the web for almost two decades.
