Steffi Graf and Andrea Petrovic having a hit

The 2 Germans having a hit in Vegas. Graf certainly hasn't lost her incredible footwork and looked like Andrea wanted the drill rallies to end long before Frauline forehand.

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

That's awesome. Graf should play a WTA tournament just for shits and giggles.

Re: Steffi Graf and Andrea Petrovic having a hit

Not bad for a 40 years old that allegedly hardly plays tennis anymore.

She could probably step on Tour tomorrow and be top 100 in three months.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Re: Steffi Graf and Andrea Petrovic having a hit

Maybe that is why Cirstea is losing all the weight. Didn´t she say she hit with her idol Steffi last year. Steffi probably killed her and she was embarrassed.

And accidentally continue taking something that is not a PED because WADA couldn't bother to inform their athletes in a proper fashion simply does not warrant a harsher punishment.

Re: Steffi Graf and Andrea Petrovic having a hit

Hopefully Andrea has snatched Graf's talent in between so that in order to become a GOAT the next few weeks and years.

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.

I love the camera angle.

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

Graf's footwork is stellar.

Re: Steffi Graf and Andrea Petrovic having a hit

And people were saying Graf could not at least be top 20 with a fully dedicated comeback. If you gave her 6 months of full training, she could give you a good run definitely.

Re: Steffi Graf and Andrea Petrovic having a hit

Yeah, Steffi isn't bad for a 41 years old

Thats what Andrea wrote in her Indian Wells blog about the practice:

This past week I got to practice with a tennis legend, Steffi Graf! So many reporters in Germany have asked me if I ever have met her, but this was the first time, and it was incredible. She has an injury right now, so she could only play for 45 minutes, but it was amazing and intense. I swear that right now, if she played again, she would be top 30 in the world. She was hitting amazing, full power, and I was totally playing so hard so I wouldn’t tank. I was dying after 45 minutes, with no breaks, it was such a tough practice! What an amazing experience to practice with her, I won’t ever forget it.
I didn’t get to see her play during her prime years when I was growing up, because I was so young, but I love watching some of the old matches on YouTube. It’s fun to watch players from the past like Sabatini, Capriati, and Graf, and see how they played. There is a lot that can be learned from them.
