When people ask me how I persuaded my wife, Steffi Graf, to move to Nevada, I often say, "Steffi loves me very much." But the truth is, it wasn't hard at all. There's a real community here, a real sense of place, a real soul. She loves it—so much so that her mom moved here as well. As for my dad? He still lives here. He's now in his 70s and still plays tennis every day. When he can't get a game, he practices with a ball machine.
People say that nothing grows in the desert. When you put down roots here, you know differently.
