"I have done everything I wanted to do in tennis. I feel I have nothing left to accomplish," Steffi Graf, while announcing her retirement
"You have never defined yourself by what you have achieved; rather, you have achieved by how you defined yourself. And even now, it has taken my breath away to see how you've quietly laid down your racket to pursue love and motherhood, with the same zeal and high standards you have always demanded of yourself... No one has ever known you to be infatuated by your own accomplishments... The history books will record for posterity, your ability to embrace and rise above adversity, to play through injury, and to win again, and again, and again... We have been touched deeply by your life, you have made us better, and we will never be the same... Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you the greatest person I've ever known," - Andre Agassi, while introducing his wife before Steffi's induction to the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 2004
"The best part of the (Tennis) tour is I ran into you. I'll be forever grateful for that," - Graf to Agassi
"Yeah, you know, when I think of Steffi Graff, I just think of the greatest. She had the greatest footwork ever. She was so focused all the time," - Serena Williams
"Sometimes I wish I could have been a bit more relaxed, but then I wouldn't have been the same player," - Steffi Graf
