Steffi has been working closely with HEAD, lending her skill and expertise to assist in the development of Airflow, the first lightweight racquet line specifically developed for women, by women, to offer ultimate power, comfort and maneuverability.
“Steffi Graf’s image and name is synonymous with women’s tennis and we are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with a former professional player of her stature,” states Robert Marte, EVP of HEAD Racquet Sports Division. “Her input has proven invaluable in creating Airflow and with Steffi’s help, we expect to continue to expand our women’s offerings in the near future.”
For nearly 17 years Steffi Graf dominated the professional circuit and is the only player in history to achieve the illustrious Golden Slam, winning all four Grand Slam singles tournaments and an Olympic Gold medal within the same calendar year. Steffi exemplifies the ambition, character and passion of a true champion. Today, the married mother of two remains passionate about her game, and enjoys finding a way to share her enthusiasm for the sport with others.
HEAD drew on Graf’s tennis expertise during the design process of the new women’s tennis racquet line, Airflow. Before producing a single racquet, HEAD interviewed thousands of women around the world in focus groups to find out what they really want in a tennis racquet. These interviews, along with Graf’s counsel, educated HEAD on the essential elements every woman’s tennis racquet should have, and HEAD engineers went to work turning their desires into reality with the creation of the HEAD Airflow series.
Steffi joins her husband, Andre Agassi, who has been a HEAD team member since 1993, in addition to renowned players Marat Safin, Gustavo Kuerten, and Svetlana Kuznetsova.
