Re: Others' tributes to Steffi Graf!
Steffi was injured (shoulder) in summer 1991 and withdraw from the us open warmup tournaments (canada and washington) and retired from the fed cup (after germany defeated canada) but other then that (not including the australian open 1992) Steffi played a normal schedule.
she didn't play warm up tournaments in 1992 either but I think she was exhausted then after the olympics.
That is how I remember it. And she wouldnt have played any events if she had been badly injured- she wasnt stupid.
