Amazing Graf!!!!!!

"Win on Saturday and Serena Williams becomes the first player since Steffi Graf (1994-96), to claim three consecutive Miami singles titles."

After reading this statement, I was just thinking how many records Steffi set on the women's tennis history, and what an amazing player she was!!!!

She is the last player who've won three consecutive Wimbledon titles..... the last player who've won a Grand Slam (and the only player who've won a Golden Grand Slam).......... and I am sure there are plenty more amazing records from her!!!!

Despite the fact that Steffi has already retired from the tennis tour, she is still the one for the current and the future players to beat!!!

We miss you, Steffi Graf!!!!

And the amazing thing is that it´s Serena who always is the one matching her records! First to win four majors in a row since Graf, can become first to win three NAsdaqs in a row since Graf....not bad company imo.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?
The truth:
Serena Williams: Greatest African-American tennisplayer in history
22 majors:6376

She's definitely the greatest IMO

Yes, its amazing how many records she has....and how many Serena is going to beat! (P.S. I'm not down-grading Graf, it just seems like Serena is starting level things with her, but still is far behind)

Steffi Was And Still Is Absolutely And Totally Amazing. My Reason For Many Years To To Watch Tennis. I Miss You Steffi, The Tour Misses You But How Great For Your To Have A Life And Two Gorgeous Children After Totally Committing Yourself To The Sport. Other Players Could Take Note Of Her Fine Example.

Still My Girl (As Always) in 2015 - JJ - JELENA JANKOVIC
STEFFI - A LEGEND IN HER OWN TIME
ALWAYS, ALWAYS LINDSAY
Good Luck to Heather Watson, Laura Robson, Kaia Kanepi
