Stefanie Graf, talented icon of women’s tennis, started playing at the age of four and quickly rose to join the top-ranking players. She was always admired for her professionalism as well as her courage and has gone down as one of the leading names in the annals of tennis. During a career that lasted 17 years, Stefanie won every possible title: 902 victories including 22 Grand Slams and an Olympic medal; she was no.1 in the WTA ranking for 377 weeks – a record that has not been beaten to this day. Stefanie Graf was indeed a superlative player! Graf officially retired in 1999 and has since devoted her time to her family – she and Andre Agassi have two children – as well as the charitable foundation she set up called “Children for Tomorrow”. The aim of the foundation is to provide help for children and families that have suffered the trauma of war, exile and violence. Stefanie and Longines share the same love of excellence, performance, revival and elegance. Through her courage, commitment and generosity, this tennis champion is the perfect embodiment of the brand’s values and slogan: “Elegance is an attitude”.
