Has Steffi Graf
had a rhinoplasty
? I’ve been watching her husband, Andre Agassi
, and his last run at a major title this past week. It was sad to see him retire, as he was the last of his era of great American tennis players (with Pete Sampras, Jim Courier, Michael Chang, Brad Gilbert, and even Todd Martin). Andre has always been my tennis role model, from his days as the long-haired, acid-washed jean short wearing young punk to his latter years as an elder statesman of the game. He brought more color to the game of tennis than just about anyone else before or after him (including Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe).
That brings us to Steffi. She looks fantastic. Has she had her nose done? I do believe so. Her nose does not appear as prominent as it used to be, and no longer seems to overtake the other, more attractive features of her face. It appears to be thinned out a bit and possibly shorter as well. A good rhinoplasty
takes the emphasis of the nose away from the face, allowing other features to stand out. I wish them both the best in retirement. I hope that Andre’s back gets better and he joins the “older guys” circuit someday as I’d like to see him play again.
