It was during a tense game in the second set of the 1996 Wimbledon semi-final against Kimiko Date. Graf joked later that since she had ended up losing that game, she should have asked him for a divorce.

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)

And people said that she didn't have a sense of humour. I forgot how gorgeous she used to look on court .

Thanks so much for the link
