Video: Agassi and Graf in new Longines watch ad
They each won the 1999 French Open, after which they began dating—and look where they are today, happily united with two kids, Jaden and Jaz. Andre Agassi and Stephanie Graf (known as Steffi to many fans the world over) step through doors into a scene with many education-minded children in what turns out to be a new Longines TV commercial. See it here:
What's perhaps most notable and amusing about the spot is how similar Agassi and Graf's hairstyle was for a period of time. He ended up with eight Grand Slam singles titles; she took a haul of 22 on the women's side, second all-time to Margaret Court. The ad is timely in that it coincides with the start of the season's second Slam at Roland Garros. Seems it's been quite smooth sailing for these two since they came together after winning big at this major where such elegant dirtball is played.
What do you think of the ad? Do you miss Agassi and Graf in the game, and would you like to see one or both as TV commentators?
