Peter Graf, the father of the world No 1 Steffi Graf, has asked to appear personally before a judge to make his appeal for release from custody in a tax evasion case.

Several written requests for release from jail have been rejected since Peter Graf was arrested on 3 August on suspicion of arranging to pay too little tax on his daughter's earnings.

Peter Wechsung, the chief prosecutor, said that Peter Graf filed a request yesterday saying he wanted to give an extensive explanation of his position.
