I think we should pick finals in favor of Sanchez-Vicario otherwise, we are really giving credit to the other opponent. Even when Aranxta played really well but lost in the Wimbledon 1995 finals or the French Open 1996 finals to Graf, when she put away a Grand Slam final it meant that she played well when it mattered most.
There are FOUR WINS to choose from:
Sanchez Vicario defeats Graf French Open 1989 - 7-6, 3-6, 7-5
Sanchez Vicario defeats Pierce French Open 1994 - 6-4, 6-4
Sanchez Vicario defeats Graf US Open 1994 1-6, 7-6, 6-4
Sanchez Vicario defeats Seles French Open 1998 7-6, 0-6, 6-3
I wish I saw Sanchez Vicario and Pierce. I read that Arantxa played like a wall. Pierce had just beaten Graf really easily, and she was favored to pound Aranxta.
I never really liked Aranxta because her game was not exciting unless she was retrieving against Graf in one of their epic matches. I came to respect Aranxta's game though. It was amazing how she defended her wristy, push of a forehand.
