Peak Seles vs Graf on Graf's court at Wimbledon: Graf wins 6-2, 6-1. Seles is too scared to ever play Graf on grass again and makes sure to lose to Studenikova and Lucic in early rounds long before coming anywhere near Graf in next 2 Wimbledon appearances with Graf in draw. Her confidence is so shaken by this brutal beatdown she never makes it past a quarterfinal of Wimbledon again.
Peak Nadal vs Federer on Federer's court at Wimbledon: Nadal wins in 5 sets.
Peak Seles vs Graf on Seles's court at French Open: Seles wins 10-8 in final set, having to play one of her best matches ever to hold off 66 unforced error Graf.
Peak Nadal vs Federer on Nadal's court at French Open: 6-1, 6-3, 6-0 for Nadal.
Seles in 2 best years ever (1991 and 1992) vs Graf:
6-4, 6-3 loss on hard courts (losing 11 of last 14 games)
7-5, 6-7, 6-2 loss on clay (was down 7-5, 5-2 before a rare Graf choked allowed a 3rd set)
6-2, 3-6, 10-8 win on clay
6-2, 6-1 on grass in one of worst ever slam final defeats by #1
Meanwhile baby Nadal wins 6 of his first 7 matches with peak Federer and never looks back again in the head to head.
Yet despite that Nadal is considered by far the inferior player today since he has 6 fewer slams. Yet Seles who is even much further behind Graf in achievements, and fared about 10% as well in head to head play is what exactly. Well other than cheesburger and Krispy Kremes annual champion of the WTA.
