"I didn't know Anna beat Graf"

then you probably also don't know that steffi was ranked 91. that sets that match in perspective since people like to call it the most amazing match ever

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Who called it the most amazing match ever?? Was Steffi playing well?? I'm assuming she was coming back from injury??

lol irma...
steffi could hang around in this era if she was able to play her best NOW. she beat a lot of those players when they were nowhere near their potential but also steffi was getting older... so, hmmmm.

I wish I had her matches against V and S on tape. I saw the Wimby match, but I don't remember a thing about it besides that Venus lost and what little I've seen on video clips.

selesrules (but then he also calls the key biscane match against monica great which says a lot about his love for monica )

and with steffi you don't only need to look how she plays but also how she acts. if steffi freaks out. it's alarm time
and yes steffi came back from injury. 3 days before she was not even ranked, even tauziat lead her in a match and the week after she lost zwereva which also says a lot

Hey nothing about Nat!

Nathalie Tauziat is the greatest ever!

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Zvereva played a great match against Steffi. To me it was a bit of a Lori McNeil rereun I thought.

Poor Anna paid the price for beating Steffi though with that injury she got though.

Had steffi continued, it would be different statistics we're reading right now. She's smart enough to realize that her days are numbered and don't wanna destroy her record.

I doubt steffi had ever lost to justine. I don't see anything steffi had not handled on a normal day also not 98

really?

the other 3 are lori, natasha and lindsay then

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

zina garrison

but zina garrison and lori mc neil beat a one ranked steffi. no matter if steffi had surgery right after, she was still number 1. so that's better then a 91 ranked steffi who had hardly played for 1,5 years

if losing after a 7 week break is legal then this is legal a 100 times more
