The stabbing incident is the only such incident I can think of where a fan of one player has injured another deliberately to heighen the status of his/her preferred player (and, sadly, achieved what he wanted!).

Her 22 GS are hallow and have asterisks all over it.

You're just p-d off because someone has actually made you look like an ignoramous.

Weeks at No. 1 for Graf greatly inflated by Seles debacle and also number of grand slam titles won. Same goes for number of times Graf won 3 slams in a year. You really need to focus on Graf 1987 to 1989 and then take into account what happened re Seles in 1990 to 1993 to be able to judge Graf's record 1993 to 1999.

1. The only one looking like an idiot is you for creating another account to spew your garbage and still being bitter about something that happened in 1993.

2.There is no way to tell even if Seles didn't get stabbed what the slam and H2H would have been.

3. I don't NEED to do anything because I am entitled to my opinion as are you.

4. It's been nice owning you troll so have a good night

It seems like you havent gotten over it...you sound so mad , after all these years ?

Its 2008, time of the WS ..Graf has retired and Seles has moved on. Please be happy

Right, because you have convinced so many people here of your intellect.

Re: At their prime, who was greater ? Serena vs Seles vs Graf?

Okay, can we just stop with the comparisons of Serena and Graf? Seles, yes. Graf, no. It's not even close. Sorry, I love Serena, but I'm sure even Richard Williams himself would tell you that! Graf is the greatest ever. Period. Monica's stabbing notwithstanding.

It's useless to compare "peak" because all "peaks" are perceived as great or small relative to their surrounding "terrain," so to speak. Since Serena and Steffi dominate different generations (or "surroundings" for the sake of the metaphor), it's somewhat useless to compare "peaks."

JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!
22!!!!The Debate is OVER, Suckas!!
Queen Vee , Keys!, Steffi , Maria,Pre-Carlos Na A-Rad
