Graf in Glamour, wearing Gaultier

April 23, 2007

As was reported in a few places, Steffi Graf appears in the May issue of Glamour. I haven’t been able to read the article — it seems like every newsstand I go to doesn’t carry the book — but I’ve found the main photo of the article via WTA World.

RIP Boris Yeltsin (1931-2007)

April 23, 2007

Tennis lost one of its great supporters. The Kremlin has confirmed that Former Russian President Boris Yeltsin died of heart failure today. He was 76.

As the world celebrates his life and his significant role in world politics as the first leader of Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union, we should not forget that he did his part, for better or for worse, to bring tennis into the Russian limelight.

He was there when Russia defeated France in the 2004 Fed Cup final (left), and when Russia beat Argentina for the Davis Cup this past December. He was also around for other matches, like the first all-Russian Grand Slam final at the 2004 French Open.

We’ll miss you, Mr. Yeltsin.
