Re: steffi graf's backhand ... like you've never seen it

All that technology to make that shit of a videogame? Lol just kidding I've always liked those high tech ads

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Well not surprising she would endlessly hit topspin backhands in practise but rarely do it on court - didn't mean she couldn't she just wouldn't

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

i felt like she used to go to the topspin backhand a lot more early in her career. it wasn't until 95ish that she started almost exclusively hitting the slice

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Yes, I agree with this. I wonder why she relied so heavily on the slice though later on. The game was getting more powerful and she had to play endless points against the likes of Seles, hitting shot after shot from her backhand corner trying to gain an advantage. The topspin shot would have given her a nice change-up and injection of pace in the rallies.

Anyway, why argue about the GOAT's gamestyle
