The Germany-U.S.A. soccer game threatened to divide the Agassi-Graf household. Stefanie Graf is the greatest athlete in German history. Andre Agassi is one of the best American tennis players who ever lived. Between them, they won 30 Grand Slams and two gold medals under their respective flags.

On Thursday, their home countries were facing off in a do-or-die World Cup game. But the beauty of the group stage of a World Cup is that sometimes a loss is as good as a win. Since Germany’s 1-0 victory (coupled with Portugal’s 2-1 victory over Ghana) meant both teams advanced to the knockout round, it was all smiles from the tennis power couple.
