Well imo, it really was the final nail in the coffin for Graf in the Graf v Seles rivalry (anything added to the rivalry after 96 has an asterix against it imo)...
Referring to Graf's injuries, you mean?
Yes, you have a point!!!
But for Monica to win so comprehensively on hardcourt in Graf's prime, after having the wood on her on clay in grand slams and Graf having it on grass, Monica's dominance at both the USO and Aus Open really sealed the edge in the rivalry over the years 1990-1993 imo...[/B][/QUOTE]
No seals, Philbo.
Seles never dominated Graf.
And Graf 91-93 was for from her best
[/B][/QUOTE]It was a good match, but I dont think its the best ever, maybe it would scrape into my top 10 matches of all time...[/B][/QUOTE]
You should choose matches you've seen *live*, imho.
Otherwise you tend to have mixed feelings, as you clearly have for the early 90s, which, for obvious reasond, you can't remember.
[/B][/QUOTE]I recall Monica having a great ability to expose Graf's backhand weakness, and really overpowered her... [/B][/QUOTE]
Navra was much better than Seles at that and LOL at the second sentence!!!
