Draws At The Eiffel Tower with Steffi Graf and Arantxa Sánchez Vicario 2016

May 25, 2016

At the ceremony for the opening-round draw in the Eiffel Tower tonight May 25th, 2016.  My first round selection at the Longines Future Tennis Aces Tournament is Alexis Tan from Singapore.

I cannot believe I am standing next to 22 time Grand Slam Champion Steffi Graf and 4 time Grand Slam Champion Arantxa Sánchez Vicario.

I am feeling so grateful and blessed!

Steffi Graf shared her experiences and gave some advice.

“Whoever these’re playing in Paris at the same time Roland Garros, one of the four major tournaments, should be something incredible for you now,” Graf said. “I had the opportunity to play a youth tournament at age 12 and come here, it’s something that I have very fresh in the memory.

“That experience is a feeling that inspired me, and I hope also can inspire all of you and be part of the future of tennis,” said the winner of 22 Grand Slam titles, six of them at Roland Garros, and 1999 it was just the last big tournament he won the German, who was one of the world for 377 weeks and is currently married to Andre Agassi.
