    Agassi inadvertently hits wife with racket, Graf needs stitches
    By BETSY BLANEY
    Associated Press Writer
    HOUSTON (AP) — Steffi Graf required three stitches Sunday after husband Andre Agassi inadvertently hit her in the face with his racket during a fundraiser that followed the final of the U.S. Clay Court Championships.
    Graf and Agassi were holding hands — her left to his right — while rallying with a couple of youngsters when Agassi’s follow-through struck his wife in the face.
    Agassi held his racket in his left hand.
    After she was hit, Graf lifted her left hand to her mouth and walked off to the side of the court with Agassi following closely behind her to check on her well-being.
    She wiped her mouth with a towel before leaving the stadium for an on-site doctor to administer three stitches to her lip, officials said. It was not clear whether the cut was to the inside or outside of her mouth area.
    She suffered no damage to her teeth, officials said.
    “She’s OK,” Agassi said. “It was an unfortunate accident.”
    Agassi and Graf were in Houston because Agassi is part of a reality show called ’The Big Give,’ an upcoming Oprah Winfrey production. An auction benefiting an elementary school in the Houston vicinity chosen for the show raised at least $225,000 Sunday.
    The doctor who paid $70,000 for a trip to play tennis with the couple stitched up the multiple Grand Slam winner.
    Agassi retired last year at the U.S. Open, having won eight Grand Slam titles. Graf retired in 1999 with 22 Grand Slam titles. The couple has two children and live in Las Vegas.
    Ivo Karlovic of Croatia won the clay court title Sunday, his first, when he beat qualifier Mariano Zabaleta 6-4, 6-1.

    How soon does the towel with Graf's DNA show up on eBay?

    I just can't believe AP moved a 10-inch story about that.

    "The doctor who paid $70,000 for a trip to play tennis with the couple stitched up the multiple Grand Slam winner."

    That's the best part of that story. A doctor not only has to shell out $70K, but then he has to do WORK. What a gip.
