…does it make a sound?



If Jim Courier and Pete Sampras play an exhibition but no one sees…

…does it actually happen? Kenneth in the (212) points out the surprisingly bare stands at the recent Match of the Modern Masters sponsored by Talon Air.

Yikes. Why was no one watching? Perhaps fans just couldn’t take a Thursday off, and instead chose to watch this exhibition online? For Sampras’ sake, let’s hope it’s the latter; he’s got a few more matches slated through the end of the year. It’s too early in his retirement to already be overexposed.

checking in with stefanie and andre



The power coupling of Andre Agassi and Stefanie Graf — I’ll humor her this one time — continues to make the news:

Posing for Vuitton: I’m so excited that both will appear in the latest Louis Vuitton campaign where “bling is out” and the focus is on LV’s “heritage as a maker of trunks, suitcases and other travel-related items.” The Graf/Agassi ad shows them in a loose embrace in a New York hotel. Other photos show Mikhail Gorbachev riding in a Kruschev-era limousine along the Berlin Wall (photo above) and actress Catherine Deneuve with a Vuitton case in front of a steam locomotive at the Gare d’Austerlitz in Paris. All were shot by Annie Leibovitz. (IHT)

Steffi steps up: I pooped my pants yesterday when I read that Steffi and Justine Henin will be playing in an exhibition match in October to benefit Graf’s charity, Children for Tomorrow. I won’t be going to Mannheim, so someone post it on YouTube, ok?

Their post-tennis business ventures: This Bloomberg story goes over all their major projects, including San Francisco restaurants, furniture lines (with Kreiss), and real estate. The latest? A Fairmont Hotel near their Tamarack Resort in Idaho.

adidas collection – SALE: OTB tips us off about a sale at adidas for its Andre Agassi collection. Check out the goods and tell us what you think.
