Remember when Steffi Graf drew Lori McNeil in Wimby '94?

You just KNEW that Graf was going to lose that one. Between the weather, losing to Pierce in roland garros, having had no-one to challenge her since the stabbing & McNeil's grass-court credentials it just seemed like the stars had aligned for one of those upsets. Before they had even finished warming up I knew that Mcneil was going to win.

I still remember that match so clearly.

Before the tournament started Graf was the hottest favourite ever with the bookies to win the title.

McNeil played beautiful tennis that day, and for me, it was the biggest upset I have witnessed

This is my cool signature

Was one of the few times I have watched a match and wanted Steffi to lose. I don't know why I wanted her to lose exactly, except that it was a VERY exciting match and that it all seemed so uncertain what would happen if Steffi went out as there was no other clear favourite to win it.

Didn't Steffi also draw a very young Hingis in '95?

And Yes, I remember that match. I was very sad for Steffi, but it was a great one!
