Tennis - Former world no. 1 Steffi Graf and husband Andre Agassi are in Hamburg this weekend for a charity event for Graf's Children for Tomorrow charity. Graf posted on her Facebook account - "Nice to be back in Hamburg at my foundation headquarters.

Excited to be here with Andre and our partner Longines to show them our building and the work we are doing at Children for Tomorrow." Graf founded Children for Tomorrow in 1998 to help mentally and emotionally traumatized children.

Children for Tomorrow is a non-profit foundation with the goal of to supporting and initiating projects that provide assistance to children and families who have become victims of war, persecution, and violence. The foundation was established after many years of contact between Stefanie Graf, medical doctors of the Outpatient Clinic for Refugee Children and their Families at the University Clinics of Hamburg-Eppendorf as well as meetings with representatives from the World Health Organization (WHO).

Graf won 22 grand slam singles titles during her career and retired in 1999. Agassi won six grand slams and retired in 2005. Agassi has his own charity foundation which helps underprivileged kids in Las Vegas.
