well. even though they ARE sisters, they had very different game-styles IMO, even though mama maleeva was a strict little woman and had them go through her training methods.
but what their game-styles vary, thier power doesn't - all 3 had no chance against the outbursting forehand and the glorious head to head.
that's why it wasn't just win/loss, it was match wins dominated as well. she lost just 6 sets to the supiorior of the sisters - Manuela. btw - 4 of these sets were taken by Manuela in the Maleeva-surface (and what COULD have been thier slam had there been a slam like that) - Carpet.
Manuela was a top10 player in all but the last two meetings, so she ain't no pushover.
Katerina could only take one set in 11 matches. moreover, she could only win 6 games from steffi APART that one set. as for lil' Maggie who in my opinion is a solid rock in the world of tennis (up to a couple of years ago, age has caught up with her) could take just one set as well.
all in all Maleevas took 8 sets from graf. and that's a whole lot IMO.
if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
