Speculation is mounting that Steffi Graf is pregnant.

The German, who is engaged to fellow tennis star Andre Agassi, has what looks like the start of a baby bulge.

Photos of Graf in Sydney with Agassi at the Australian Open have been re-examined in the light of the rumours.

One friend has been quoted saying Graf became pregnant at the end of November.
