Default Baby Agassi

This just in:

Quote:
Tennis stars Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf confirmed Thursday they are expecting a baby. "We are so happy to have been blessed with this gift," said Agassi in a statement. The baby, the first for both, is due in mid-December. "I do not know what their plans are for marriage," said Todd Wilson, spokesman for Agassi Enterprises. Agassi and Graf, who have been living in Agassi's Las Vegas home, recently bought a $23 million home in the San Francisco Bay area
Does this mean the end of tennis for Agassi and the beginning of a family?

Agassi still has some in him, I believe - he's been playing better than Sampras, at least. To comment on his baby, I think it's great for he and Graf - now there's a tennis family if I ever saw one! I think he will retire in a year or two.

I agree, he is probably winding down to the end of his career, but hes got a few more in him. I can just see that little baby running around the court in a diaper with a tennis raquet.

Sort of relating to this, Agassi proposed to Graf:
Quote:
Agassi says he has proposed to Graf

LONDON -- Andre Agassi says he has proposed to Steffi Graf and they will definitely get married.

"The actual question has been dealt with," the American said in an interview in the Daily Telegraph newspaper on Friday.

"I have asked her to marry me and we are committed to our future together. It feels like we are married now, it kind of feels that way."

Agassi and Graf, both in their early 30s and among the greats of modern tennis, announced last month they were expecting a son in December.

"I would say that becoming parents definitely puts a time frame on getting married," Agassi said. "In fact, in my mind, it wouldn't be right not to get married."

The Las Vegan is clearly looking forward to the birth of his child.

"In the same way that girls dream of their wedding day, I was a boy who dreamt of having children.

"I always saw it as part of my future, but I was careful about when because I cannot do anything half-heartedly.

"I am 100 percent ready. I am excited. I was always sure about starting a family and meeting Steffi kind of solidified it.

"We dream about our future together a lot. We don't quite understand how it is going to play out, but that is part of the fun."
