Tennis ace Andre Agassi has been praised as the perfect man by his wife Steffi Graf - despite her initial reluctance to date him.
Graf reveals it took Agassi months of perseverance before he secured her attentions, because he refused to ask her out personally.
Instead, the former husband of actress Brooke Shields, was so shy he sent Graf love messages through his friends.
She says: "That was the wrong way. If you have something to tell me, the only way is to do it directly."
However, after being happily married for four-and-a-half years Graf is convinced she has found her Mr Right.
She adds: "You just have to look in his eyes. He is unbelievably cordial. He's just perfect."
