The 1993 Aussie final was the greatest match I've ever seen. Graf was at her best, but Seles had all the answers and raised her level beyond anything even she'd ever accomplished just to beat her great rival. A set down, there was no fear in her eyes, nor frustration, just sheer resolve and steely intensity. At that point she looked so convincing. As if she really was about to become the greatest player that ever lived. We'll never know what would have happened had she been able to play the rest of 1993.
That rally in the French Open final of 1992 was just breathtaking. Graf's movement was beautiful, but Seles really had her teeth in and wasn't going to remove them until she angled that final winner.
In 1989, at just 15, Seles was noticeably hitting lighter shots. Graf was just such an immense physical presence. She looked far taller than 5'9, such was the length of her legs. She just never looked stretched.
And then the final of Wimbledon, 1992. I think it's fair to say Graf played a brilliant match and Seles may not have won her first final (at least that year) even with the grunting.
These are two of the greatest players who ever lived. To me, having lived through their matches, they always will be special.
They were both so intense, loved the game, relished the competition, wanted every ball. There was respect, if no great love between the two. They did whatever it took. Winning was everything to them. There was no diva-esque moaning and feigned injuries we see today. Great, great, great champions.
