Agassi Hits Graf in Face with Racquet

by MadProfessah

Appearing at an exhibition at the Westside Tennis Club on Sunday during the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship final won by 6'10" Croatian Ivo Karlovic over Argentine Mariano Zabaleta, 8-time Grand Slam champion Andre Agassi hit 22-time Grand Slam champion Steffi Graf in the face with a volley. The two were holding hands at the time and Agassi had the racket in his left (non-playing) hand. Graf needed three stitches on her lip.

"She's OK," Agassi said. "It was an unfortunate accident."

I suppose what everyone is thinking: How did he miss her nose?
