A lot like when Lleyton Hewitt and Kim Clijsters pulled the plug on their planned nuptials a few years ago, the possibility of another new tennis power couple hit the net this weekend when Radek "Lips" Stepanek tersely announced via his agent that he and Martina "Choppers" Hingis had called off their engagement. Who knows what transpired between these two Mitteleuropean baseliners? One major obstacle, naturally, had to be the strain of their conflicting travel schedules. Of course this development only cements the rock-solid status of Andre Agassi and Stefi Graf, seen lately lounging around in a Louis Vuitton ad, as the ultimate tennis union.
