Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi – a “perfect match”. Amazon Prime Video is now filming the love story of the tennis stars under this title.

On the one hand, Steffi Graf (54), the cool, perfectionist tennis player from Germany. On the other Andre Agassi (53), the spirited tennis hippie from the USA. One of the biggest and most surprising love stories in the sports world emerged between the unlikely superstars. Amazon Prime Video is now filming this love story under the working title “Perfect Match”. The film is scheduled to appear on the streaming service in 2024. There is no specific date yet.

Amazon presented the project as part of the “Prime Video Presents Sport” event – and has already presented the first images. Amazon has already created almost perfect matches with the actors. There are certainly similarities with the role models.

These are the actors Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi

Lena Klenke (27) embodies Steffi Graf. The Munich native became known for her role as Laura in all three parts of “Fack ju Göhte”. She played a major role in the globally acclaimed Netflix series “How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)”. She was also part of the main cast in the film “The Silent Classroom”.

Toby Sebastian (31) plays Andre Agassi and is still an unknown quantity in Germany. The Brit was seen in five episodes of “Game of Thrones,” among other things. His sister is better known: “Oppenheimer” actress Florence Pugh (27).

Other roles include: Comedian Michael Kessler (56) as Steffi’s father Peter Graf (1938-2013) and Bianca Bardoe (“Gran Turismo”) as Agassi’s ex-wife Brooke Shields (58).

Late happy ending: Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi

Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi met again and again at the Grand Slam tournaments from the late 1980s onwards, and both amassed a number of titles. But it didn’t work until late. Although, according to his autobiography, Agassi fell in love with the “Countess” early on. Namely when he first saw an interview with her on television. But both were bound elsewhere. Graf was in a relationship with racing driver Michael Bartels (55) from 1992 to 1999, and Agassi was briefly married to Hollywood star Brooke Shields.

It wasn’t until 1999 that the two superstars came together. They appear together for the first time at a boxing match in Agassi’s hometown of Las Vegas. They married there on October 22, 2001. Four days after the wedding, their son Jaden Gil (21) was born. Daughter Jaz Elle (19) follows on November 3, 2003.
