Agassi starts the ball rolling by trash-talking McEnroe a little mentioning how he kept blaming his partner “the entire time!” in the last edition. Agassi then moves the camera over to his wife Steffi Graf.
Although her eye are firmly on the second edition of Pickleball Slam, Graf reminisced about the first event, describing it as an absolute “blast.”
She goes on to say how excited she is about the contest in her message to Maria and John, which all points to the match-up at the Seminole Hardrock Hotel & Casino on February 4 being totally epic.
“Hey guys, super excited. Hey Maria, hi John. Really looking forward to see you guys. We’re getting ready. we’re working hard, so yo’ve got to bring your A-game like Andre said, Last year was such a blast, I can only imagine we’re gonna have a great, great time. So, really looking forward to seeing you down at the Hardrock,” Graf said.Steffi Graf
Sense Of Anticipation
Reflecting on her initial interest in the event, Graf mentioned her experience watching the inaugural Pickleball Slam in April and the sense of anticipation she was feeling in reuniting with Agassi on the court and facing off against Sharapova and McEnroe.
“When I watched the inaugural Pickleball Slam in April and stepped onto the court, I was hooked. Andre and I can’t wait to get back out on the court together to face off against Maria and John,” the German said.Steffi Graf
Agassi And Roddick Vs. McEnroe And Change
The first edition of the Pickleball Slam had seen Andre Agassi partnering with Andy Roddick to secure victory over John McEnroe and Michael Chang.
This time around, the event promises something slightly different, with Agassi and McEnroe making their return, accompanied by tennis icons Graf and Sharapova. The stakes are high, with a $1 million top prize awaiting the winners.
