Steffi and Monica-the relationship

I was just wondering why it just seemed that Monica and Steffi had a very cold and distant relationship. Sure, they both say they had a very professional relationship and lots of respect for each other, but somehow the warmth wasn't there like the other rivalries. E.g: Navratilova-Evert, Davenport-Hingis.

Even after their matches, you don't see any hugs and kisses.

Graf-Sanchez-Vicario and Seles-Sanchez-Vicario always hugged and kissed at the net as well.

After all the adversity they suffered, I would assume it would bring them closer together.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

if they had been sitting in the same class at school they would probably not have been friends either. they are just different persons with different characters.

That's a good point, Irma. But don't opposites attract?

good point, but birds of the same feather flock together.

I agree, they flock only on the tennis court.

okee when steffi was pretty nasty about monica (no I am not gonna deny that. it's a fact.) she was also nasty about a certain male player and we all know where they are now

so maybe if for some reason monica and steffi meet again. they become best friends lol

I don't recall Steffi ever being nasty about Monica. Irma, I don't know what you're talking about.

ali saying her backhand would be good for me but I can miss her mouth is not nice imho

neither the comments about that certain young players can't get a normal word out of their mouth (where there is no doubt that she meant monica considering steffi had just lost to her so it's good to claim that she was a bad loser there)

Steffi and Monica also hugged when they first met up again at the 1995 Canadian Open during a practice session. They wished each other the best of luck and said, "See you in the final" to each other.

(Of course, Steffi would then go on to lose to Amanda Coetzer in her first match and Monica went on to win the title beating Amanda in the final.)

Why would they ever be friends? They have nothing in common now, not even tennis.

Early in her career, Monica was a total airhead. She couldn't get a word out of her mouth without a silly giggle. I used to listen to Monica's interviews and think what it would be like to have a conversation with her. Made me cringe. Steffi was always quiet and shy and thoughtful. Why would two people like that become friends when they are young?

Opposites do attract (i.e., Stefanie Graf and Andre Agassi, on the surface, as opposite as two people can get) but they fell in love. Two women who are total opposites who did not become friends when they were young seldom become friends when they get older.
