Agassi hits Graf in face with racket

Steffi Graf required three stitches Sunday after her husband, Andre Agassi, inadvertently hit her in the face with his racket during a fundraiser after the final of the U.S. Clay Court Championships in Houston.

Retired superstars Graf and Agassi were holding hands — her left to his right — while rallying with a couple of youngsters when Agassi's follow-through struck his wife in the face. Agassi held his racket in his left hand.

After she was hit, Graf walked to the side of the court — with Agassi following to check on her. She wiped her mouth with a towel before leaving to have an on-site doctor administer three stitches to her lip, seattletimes.com reports.

Agassi and Graf were in Houston because Agassi is part of a reality show called 'The Big Give,' an upcoming Oprah Winfrey production. An auction benefiting an elementary school in the Houston vicinity chosen for the show raised at least $225,000 Sunday.

The doctor who paid $70,000 for a trip to play tennis with the couple stitched up the multiple Grand Slam winner.

Agassi retired last year at the U.S. Open, having won eight Grand Slam titles. Graf retired in 1999 with 22 Grand Slam titles. The couple has two children and live in Las Vegas, the AP reports.
