Re: Peak Graf vs peak Seles
Here are how their stats compare peak to peak:
Seles peak years 1991-1992. Won 6 of 8 slams. I would note she skipped a slam except the slam she skipped is one she never won which makes that pretty much moot. Match record of 74-6 in 1991 and 70-5 in 1992. 10 titles in each year.
Graf peak years 1988, 1989, 1995, 1996. Won 13 of 14 slams played. Match records of 72-3, 86-2, 47-2, 54-4. 11 tournament titles in 1988, 14 tournament titles in 1989, 9 tournament titles in 1995, and 7 tournament titles in 1996.
Statistically anyway Graf has Seles beat by a huge margin peak to peak. Seles never matched Graf's level of dominance in her peak years. For that reason mainly I give the edge to peak Graf.
