Re: Others' tributes to Steffi Graf!

It's not that hard to believe, after all the best description of Steffi's court demenour was that phrase (by Pam Shriver IIRC): "She plays like she is double-parked". Despite my love for Sabatini, I'm pretty much like that myself
About Steffi's career mentioned in a previous post, I don't really remember her being that injured in 1991-1992; if she was, they were pretty minor injuries as they were not mentioned back then as a reason for her being surpassed by Mónica Seles and pretty much on par with Sabatini between US Open 90 and US Open 92. Mónica was the dominant player,period.

Chris the Ice Lady - Martina Grace&Power
Fraulein Forehand - The Divine Argentine
Merciless Monica - Barcelona Bumblebee
