Dominating after your rival is almost killed - sign of weakness

seles - 0 of her rivals almost murdered, dominated tennis
graf - her main rival almost murdered ,then and only then, did she dominate

this means seles is better than graf

Interesting. Graf dominated women's tennis before Seles won her first grand slam title by winning the Golden Slam in 1988 and before Seles lost to Evert 6-1, 6-2 in the fourth round of the US Open 1989 (the same year Graf won 3/4 Grand Slam titles).

Using Seles' stabbing in a ritualistic "anti-Cali" thread is just as disrespectful towards Seles as anything her assailant ever assualted her with.

unfortunately not too many ppl acknowledges this fact.
but the most important thing is that graf knows this is true deep in her heart...that she was owned by seles.

Winners forget they're in a race, they just love to run. You try too hard.

oh please

more like seles was lucky that steffi wasnt playing her best in 1990 or 1991

steffi picked up her form in 1992 and 1993 before dipping in form again in 1994, when seles wasnt even around

It is such an unfortunate thing when people become so obsessed and warped in their thinking towards sports figures. This seem to be more perversive in tennis, as I note the mean and vile things that are spewed daily on this board about players. It appears that there are a few "Gunters" out there who would love to get rid of their fav rivals.

There is no question that when Gunter interject himself, his action marred the sport and Graf's achievements, as the debate goes on whether Steffi could have won so many majors if Monica was able to play. The only person with a definitive yes to this would be Calimero, as we all know he sides with Gunter on this.

The truth is that noone could predict the future as to what would of happened between these rivals. The stabbing did have an effect on Monica and that was so unfortunate because she could of possibly won more slams, but everything happens for a reason. Graf should not be blamed for what happened because it was the work of someone so evil.

nobody, well not me anyway, is blaming graf of course she had nothing to do with it....this is just argument to counteract graf's dominance...its a fact her main rival was taken out...using this does not mean its grafs fault.

and the nut that stabbed her told us the reason actually

i know that the vast majority of graf fans are civil, but the extreme ones do try to ignore the stabbing as much as possible and pretend the stabbing had NOTHING to do with graf inflating her numbers..
