Andre Agassi jokingly pushed Steffi Graf for more clay majors

In 2019, Roland Garros wished Agassi his birthday with a photo of him winning his only major on clay in 1999. The eight-time Grand Slam champion took the opportunity, not only to acknowledge the official account post, but rather, to tease his wife, 22-time Grand Slam champion Steffi Graf.

He tweeted, “I’m not as anxious as my wife. I only needed 1 @RolandGarros, thank you”.

Steffi Graf won six titles on clay and carried the name of women’s tennis in the 90s. Along with this, she won four Australian Open titles, seven Wimbledon titles and five US Open titles .
