What is wrong with you? I'm not saying I believe that because I certainly do not. But pretty much any thread about Graf or Seles turns into an argument about the stabbing. So please, know your shit and take a seat before ripping into me please.

All theory. No one knows what would have happened - Graf may never have lost to Seles had it not happened - who knows. But what happended to Seles should not take away from Grafs acheivements one bit.

This is what I meant and IS a big reason why people on here discredit Graf. The OP clearly has made his mind up already though and won't hear a differing opinion.

Re: Why is Graf overlooked?

It's simply a case of most posters on here not knowing ANYTHING about tennis before the 21st century

People (not just Willytards either) talk about the Graf Generation like they were still playing in long dresses. Even though, in the two matches Graf and Serena played in 1999, Graf MORE than held her own (Graf won one match 7-5 in the third, Serena won one 7-5 in the third), even though 1999 ranks FAR higher up Serena's "best seasons" list than it does Graf's.

You asked why people discredit Graf and THAT IS A REASON WHY. So you sit your fucking ass down, please. You wanted answers and that is mine. Stop trying to save face and actually listen to other people's opinions

Re: Why is Graf overlooked?

Seles looked like she could be a tough competitor for Graf and I am absolutely sure that Graf wouldn't have so many slams if it wasn't for Prohl. People never gave really gave her all those accomplishments because of Seles's confidence at that time

peace out.

Girl so you agree that that is one of the reasons? I was just giving an answer to what you asked. I have no idea why you went all crazy on my ass when all I did was respond to the OP.

Anyway, why are we even arguing?

Yet she's just been 123 weeks at number 1. Sorry but she's still not at the level of Evert and Nav. She's still about 110 titles away from Evert and 120 from Navratilova

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.
