Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf – Sensational Tennis Couple
Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf have been big tennis sensations and this sensation got better when Graf and Agassi got married. Their relationship began in 1999 after their combined surprise-win at French Open. It was a surprise because neither one had won a Grand Slam since 1995. At that time, Graf had a breakup with her boyfriend, a German car racer, after a seven year relationship and Agassi divorced his wife Brook Shields after two years of marriage.
Graf is one year older than Agassi. The couple married on October 22, 2001 in Las Vegas. The ceremony was attended by the couple’s mothers only. Not even Graf’s father and sister attended the ceremony. The vows were exchanged in front of Agassi’s family friend, a district judge, Michael Cherry.
The wedding was a surprise even to the other family members. However, they did not show any bad feelings for not being invited to it. The reason behind such a private ceremony was Graf’s pregnancy and the couple wanted to be married before having the baby. Graf was nine months pregnant when they both married. They had their honeymoon after the arrival of their baby boy. After four days of marriage, Jaden Gil, their son, was born. After two years, Steffi gave birth to a baby girl. Those close to them can feel the couple’s extreme love for each other and for those around them.
Graf had already retired before her wedding after the 1999 Grand Slam award, but Agassi continued his career until 2006 after which he retired because of sciatica.
