"मुझे याद है कि मैं उसे अपने बॉक्स में सीट दिलाने की कोशिश कर रहा था और वह इससे कोई लेना-देना नहीं चाहती थी" - जब स्टेफी ग्राफ ने 1999 यूएस ओपन फाइनल से पहले आंद्रे अगासी की मदद से इनकार कर दिय
One of, if not the most, powerful tennis pairings is Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf. At their residence in Las Vegas, they were united in marriage on October 22, 2001. Their children are a son named Jaden Gil and a daughter named Jaz Elle.
The former American World No. 1 was questioned about his relationship with Graf during an Australian Open event a few years ago, notably on the day of the 1999 US Open final between himself and Todd Martin.
Let me see how much I can remember,” said Andre Agassi. “I clearly recall breaking Martin in the opening game of the match, after which we went three hours without breaking each other. I defeated him by scores of 6-4, 6-7, 6-3, 6-2, so it was a successful start to the evening.”
In Agassi’s personal and professional life, it was a significant day. Pete Sampras’ six-year streak of finishing the season as the top-ranked player was broken when he won the US Open final and reclaimed the top spot in the ATP rankings.
The eight-time Grand Slam champion also revealed how his wife refused to let him worry about getting her a place in the player’s box despite his repeated attempts.
We can all agree that was a beautiful period in our life. She refused to accept my offer of a seat in my box, as I can still clearly recall. “Don’t worry about me, you worry about Todd Martin,” she reassured me. I will be OK because I have been around the stadium a few times. That was the beginning when she found everything out, he said.
The 52-year-old said that after they went out to eat that night, she followed him to his residence and “never left.”
“She never left after I brought her [home] from New York. I am at a loss for words. My hope and desire was to, you know, imagine a future, but dreams can only come true if we act in accordance with our beliefs on a daily basis. She constantly shows me how to achieve goals like that “Added he.
Andre Agassi was previously married to Brooke Shields for almost three years before marrying Steffi Graf. After getting married in 1997, the couple divorced in 1999. Agassi admitted that he used a very addictive illegal substance in 1997 and lied to the ATP to avoid a ban when he was speaking about that time in his life several years later.
He claimed that when experiencing a hard time, he was extremely vulnerable.
He said that due to his unhappy marriage and use of the substance “crystal methamphetamine,” he was extremely vulnerable.
“I don’t think anyone truly appreciates the influence drugs have until they choose to use them. It happened while I was depressed and at my lowest. I was in a marriage I didn’t want to be in and a life I didn’t select. Someone provided me a way out when they passed by, and I took it “explained Andre Agassi.
“And when it does, do you recognise its trappings? No, I was unable to comprehend its full significance. That, in my opinion, is one of the pitfalls of drug use and a necessary aspect of the truth “Added he.
