Agassi busts Graf's lip with racket during fundraising event
Steffi Graf required three stitches Sunday after husband Andre Agassi inadvertently hit her in the face with his racket during a fundraiser that followed the final of the U.S. Clay Court Championships according to Associated Press reports.
Agassi and Graf were in Houston because Agassi is part of a reality show called 'The Big Give,' an upcoming Oprah Winfrey production.
Here's the part of the story that caught my eye:
At least the incident gave one fan a thrill. Stefan Krenzer had just donated $70,000 to the fundraising effort on behalf of a rundown school in the Texan town of La Marque, in return for a tennis lesson from Agassi and Graf.
In the end, his credentials as a doctor found him giving Graf three stitches to the lip, giving him rather closer exposure to the star couple than he had bid for or intended.
How funny is that a doctor was the one who won the auction to play with the superstar couple? I guess it would have been funnier if the auction winner was a personal injury attorney. (Thanks to loyal reader JBJ for pointing us toward this story.)
