Methinks Cali was about to be bragging if Graf beat a current WTA player to five games.

It was no upset, she hasn't played professional tennis in what... 6 years?

Well Graf never had to deal with the likes of Serena and Venus. The game is at an entirely different level now. She was good for her time, but a healthy Serena versus a healthy Graf... I think we all know what the results would be.

Bragging?

No, actually I expected Graf to beat this journeywoman easily.
What is Likhovsetva's ranking?
Only #16 or so, no?

Damn, Graf must be a little bit rusty ...

This journeywoman took Graf to three sets at the end of 1998 Philly if you forget, an event Graf won.

Be glad Graf made it competitive with a top 20 player. It's a good effort IMO. With more work Graf may be able to beat a lower top ten player in the near future.

OK, a healthy 23-year-old Serena most probably would beat a healthy 36-year-old Graf.
