One of the most talented icons in women’s tennis, Stefanie Graf shares with Longines the love of excellence, performance and elegance, and devotes herself to her foundation "Children for Tomorrow".
The superbly talented icon of women’s tennis started playing at the age of four and quickly rose to join the top-ranking players. Admired throughout for her professionalism and courage, she became 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 charity 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”.
