Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Steffi the Sarcastic, one of the patron saints of Generation X, at her wit's end dealing with the idiots in the press room and their one-track minds. Shades of: "It's a simple loss, I think. What else is it? Tell me! Is it a tragedy? A disaster? Who knows?"

Graf Ridicules Burnout Theory; She's Left to Ponder What Happened While Sanchez Celebrates
Sally Jenkins
The Washington Post
June 12, 1989

While Arantxa Sanchez celebrated in a way she called "big, big," Steffi Graf sought some explanation for the stunning result of their French Open women's final. Sanchez, at 17, was the first player from her country to win a Grand Slam title, and she did it in the most unforeseen way possible, by halting Graf's bid for an unprecedented Double Slam.

Spain today rejoiced, and Sanchez reveled in her new status as one of the coming young players. Ranked No. 10 in the world, she upset the No. 1 player in a relentless match that was the sort Graf rarely has had to endure, 7-6 (8-6), 3-6, 7-5. "I am now one of the top 10 players in the world," Sanchez said. "Now I have won this tournament. So we will see how high I go."

The loss will be a strange, marred place in Graf's colossal record. She had swept the Australian and French opens, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open last year, and the Australian again this year. But the upset may have been perfectly logical in the context of this French Open, in which everything that wasn't supposed to happen somehow did.

It was a tournament riddled with upsets. The highest seeded quarterfinalist other than No. 1 Graf was No. 6 Manuela Maleeva, and she was promptly defeated by unseeded Monica Seles, 15, who became perhaps as much of a darling in Paris as Sanchez. No. 2 seed Gabriela Sabatini lost in the round of 16 to Mary Joe Fernandez, 17, seeded 15th. That meant Graf, at 19, became the oldest woman in the semifinals.

The results could partially be explained by the absences of second-ranked Martina Navratilova, fourth-ranked Chris Evert, and Pam Shriver. They pulled out of the field pleading various reasons from age to unwillingness to undergo two trying weeks on clay. Graf generously acknowledged that these young insurgents can be good for women's tennis, which at times in the last year almost seemed smothered by her domination.

"It's good I think," she said. "When people only talk about Navratilova, Evert, Sabatini and Graf, it gets boring."

Observers wondered if Graf's trademark of mental fortitude, the ability to play so ruthlessly in every big match, wasn't flagging a bit under the strain of so many Grand Slam finals, nine in a row. Or if, just shy of her 20th birthday, she isn't giving in to the pressure of being No. 1.

Or if, so single-minded until now, she isn't losing her devotion to tennis and experiencing a career crisis. Certainly fame has its trials for her. At home in Bruhl, West Germany, two months ago a fanatical fan slashed his wrist in front of her while she was practicing.

But questions like those provoked the only graceless responses Graf made in defeat. "Right, I just can't live with it anymore," she said, sarcastically. "What am I going to do? Look, how long have I lived with this already? I mean, come on. Just because I lose now, that's no reason . . . Do you think it's something serious? Really? What can I do?"

Her problems were in all likelihood more physical. On Tuesday, she ate pizza that did not agree with her. She lost almost seven pounds in three days, which contributed to her distinct lack of pace. She was unable to eat anything Wednesday, and was still weak in the final.

Or perhaps it was just inevitable that she would have an off day in a Grand Slam. She preferred to attribute her loss to the sheer improbability of a second Grand Slam. She had been pestered by the subject ever since winning the French last year, and was clearly tired of it. That was not to say she didn't feel the loss deeply.

"Sure, no more questions about the Slam," she said. "But I wouldn't call it a relief . . . It's just so hard to do, four tournaments on different surfaces. Doing it twice would be just amazing."

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

For some strange reason, the tabloids latched on to Steffi before there was much to report.

WIMBLEDON - Graf Quietly Rolls, So What's Unusual?
Pat Calabria
Newsday
June 28, 1989

Here's the big news on Steffi Graf: Her boyfriend, 163rd-ranked Alex Mronz, has not been advising her on strategy. "Oh, no, no," Graf said.

And Peter Graf absolutely did not tell his daughter she was training too hard in preparation for Wimbledon and ought to spend a day shopping.

"My father telling me to go shopping?" Graf said. She laughed.

An uneventful 6-1, 6-2 victory over Julie Salmon in her first-round match yesterday left the Fleet Street tabloids eager for every morsel of gossip about the top-seeded woman. Never mind that No. 2 Martina Navratilova advanced with an easy 6-3, 6-2 victory over Jill Hetherington; that No. 3 Gabriela Sabatini ousted Dianne Fromholtz Balestrat, 6-1, 6-0, and No. 4 Chris Evert defeated Peanut Louie Harper, 6-1, 6-1.

Graf is bigger news. To the unending disappointment of the gossip columnists, however, she revealed she is concentrating on repeating as Wimbledon champion and not on Mronz.

"So could you ask me about me?" she said, "and not him?"

Among the men, No. 8 Tim Mayotte beat Paolo Cane, 7-6 (7-2), 6-0, 6-1; No. 12 Kevin Curren ousted Andrew Castle, 6-2, 4-6, 7-6 (7-4), 6-3, and David Pate eliminated Paul Annacone, 3-6, 7-6 (7-2), 4-6, 7-5, 6-4.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

She shoulda feigned death for the rest of the press conference. "I feel fine--gaaahhuurggg...."

WIMBLEDON - EXTRA! EXTRA! London tabloids tell all - and then some
By Pat Calabria
Newsday
July 3, 1989

A BIRMINGHAM, England, man fathers 50 children. A Liverpool woman buries her baby alive. Read all about it! Banner headlines scream from the London tabloids in bold, black type in a style harkening back to schoolboys in knickers lugging sacks of newspapers and shouting, "Extra! Extra!" No story is too unimportant or insignificant as long as it involves bribery, celebrities, scandal or sex.

Some of the stories may even contain a grain of truth. The newspapers are thin, brassy and a few of them carry "Page 3" photographs of bare-chested women. The publications are lumped together as the "Fleet Street tabloids," although not all of them are located there. It's sort of like characterizing the theater district in New York as "Broadway."

Wimbledon is big news; not always the tennis, just Wimbledon. The day before the tournament opened, the Daily Express carried the story "Ivan Lendl: His Life and Loves." Boris Becker's love interest, Karen Schulz, is a hot topic, too.

The newspaper Today sent a reporter to Cologne, West Germany, to interview Steffi Graf's boyfriend, Alex Mronz, to get the revealing scoop that sometimes it's hard for them to go out to dinner in public. If the subject is too dull, Fleet Street has been known to stretch the truth or invent it altogether.

During her first news conference here, Graf was asked if she missed her father, Peter, who was home in West Germany recuperating from a viral infection. "Oh, sure," she said.

"But how much do you miss him?" came the next question from a tabloid reporter.

Graf, bewildered, said: "Well, I miss him technically because he helps with my tennis and I miss him because he's my father."

And the next day, the Daily Sun described Graf as "heartsick." A sub-headline trumpeted her as "Daddy's girl."

It was a big story, like the outrage over the price of strawberries and cream at Wimbledon. The newspapers railed that the cost of a tiny cup of strawberries was a pound, sixty-five, or about $2.75. All the tabloids carried the story on Page One the same day, and when Wimbledon quickly relented and dropped the price 15 pence - 28 cents - each claimed the credit.

"Happy tennis fans were toasting the Sun as the price of strawberries at Wimbledon was slashed hours after we exposed the great fruit racket," the paper proudly wrote.

"Strawberry prices were slashed at Wimbledon after the Daily Mirror revealed how they were being sold at more than 40 pence each," the Mirror boasted.

A daily paper named "The Sport" isn't about sports at all, unless you count the full-page picture of Gabriela Sabatini in a skimpy swimsuit. The picture got nearly as much attention as Lady Di finishing second in a Parents Day 80-meter sprint at Prince William's school. The Daily Mail dutifully reported that "she was expected to retain the title she won last year."

But Di was beaten at the tape by another mum. "Pipped at the Post," the headline read.

If the camera lens isn't focused on the royals or the man who barbecued his son, then it's on John McEnroe. He tossed his racket - once - in his first-round match, so one story on his dramatic comeback from two sets down was headlined "Dirty Mac Tirade!"

After McEnroe's victory over Australian Darren Cahill, the Daily Star's front page blared " `Aussies? I Hate 'Em,' Says Mac." Of course, he never said any such thing.

Then again, several years ago the Star ran a front-page interview with an astrologer who predicted that McEnroe wouldn't win Wimbledon because he married Tatum O'Neal and their stars weren't aligned right, or something. And when McEnroe didn't win, the follow-up story had the tone of, "I told you so."

Two years ago, a headline rang out after Boris Becker's early elimination by unheralded Peter Doohan: "Boris Bonked." In British slang, "bonking" is a euphemism for intercourse and the story went on to disclose that Becker's strength was sapped by the demands of his gorgeous lover.

In the tabloids, lovers are always "gorgeous" or "stunning."

Of course, all the exposes come at the expense of trifling matters like world hunger and arms control. There isn't room for those issues when the papers must plan for the story of the London lad who yanked out five front teeth with a pair of pliers. He'd been promised the tooth fairy would reward him with two pounds a tooth, but he didn't want to wait until they fell out by themselves.

At least the Mirror had a photo of the boy's toothless grin as proof the episode actually might have happened. There was no evidence forthcoming that a Manchester woman really murdered her boss and sold his false teeth, or that a murder suspect apprehended in France really is a werewolf.

But no one makes news like the stars. Three times in the same interview, Graf was asked if she had recovered from the mild case of food poisoning that helped spoil her chance to win the French Open. Reporters here like to fish for injuries - they're almost as big as boyfriends.

Twice Graf answered that, yes, she was in perfect health, and the third time she was asked, she replied in exasperation, "No matter how many times you ask me, I'm going to feel fine."

It was the right thing to say, but it didn't make good copy.


It certainly wasn't as good as the secret photographs of Prince Albert of Monaco sunbathing beside a topless beauty or the account of little Prince William wrestling with a schoolmate. "Basher," the Mirror wrote, nicknaming the Prince, "then started giving his opponent a going-over."

It was almost as thrilling as the huge treatment three papers gave to Eva Sviglerova after her loss to Monica Seles, pictures and all. "Cheeky Eva," the tabloids speculated, wasn't wearing panties under her tennis skirt.

And then there was the headline in the Sun that pushed even Wimbledon off the front page. It read: "Nun Quits to Become Rock Star."

A more solemn field trip.

GRAF DONATES $3,600 TO HELP MAINTAIN HIROSHIMA MEMORIAL
THE SEATTLE TIMES
Sunday, October 1, 1989
Associated Press

TOKYO - Steffi Graf, the world's top-ranked woman tennis player, donated $3,600 to help maintain the ruins of a building kept standing as a peace memorial after the 1945 U.S. atomic attack in Hiroshima, a municipal office spokesman said

Graf, of West Germany, made the donation in a meeting with Hiroshima Mayor Takeshi Araki in the western Japan city, spokesman Masato Honda said.

He said Graf also visited the Peace Memorial Park and placed a floral tribute.

Graf's donation increased to about $1.6 million funds collected to repair and maintain the building, whose main feature is the skeleton of a dome, Honda said.

Graf visited Hiroshima to play an exhibition match before coming to Tokyo to compete in the Federation Cup, the women's version of the Davis Cup.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

The young and inexperienced predator spies something weak and injured down by the watering hole...

Women's Tennis - Graf Finally Puts It Out of Reach of Injured Goles
By Mike Penner
Los Angeles Times
August 12, 1984

The court surface was green-painted cement, not red clay. And the smog that hovered over the stadium was strictly Southern Californian.

But in their women's championship match at the Los Angeles Tennis Center at UCLA Saturday, Steffi Graf of West Germany and Sabrina Goles of Yugoslavia brought a distinct European flair to the Olympic tennis demonstration tournament.

This is the way women's tennis is played on the other side of the Atlantic. Patiently. Politely. With bushels of baseline forehands and backhands, long rallies, and volleys sliced more out of desperation than design.

For two sets, Graf and Goles played a carbon-copy match with carbon-copy results: One set apiece. But in the third, Graf proved to be just a little more consistent -- and a lot healthier -- as she outlasted Goles in the heat, 1-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Goles figured as the slight favorite in the final, having been seeded No. 7 in the field, just ahead of No. 8 Graf. Her world ranking is currently No. 38, a few slots in front of Graf's No. 47 position.

And early on, she was in command. Goles dominated the first set and was ahead, 1-0, in the second when she began to feel a tug in her shoulder.

"I felt the shoulder start to stick when I would serve," Goles said. "I decided not to put so much pressure on it, but by doing that, I hurt my back."

Goles strained a muscle in her lower back, an injury that interrupted play in the third set, with Graf holding a 3-2 lead. Ice was applied and doctors had Goles do some stretching exercises before returning to the court.

It wasn't much of a remedy.

Graf was quick to take advantage, hitting low ball after low ball, making Goles bend over for painful scoop shots.

"I realized what had happened," Graf said, "and I tried to keep the balls low on her forehand. On the last few balls, she really missed them."

Said Goles as she wiped away tears during the post-match press conference: "I kept feeling a twinge. I couldn't go for low balls and that was it."

It was an ironic twist for Goles, who reached the final by upsetting a limping Catherine Tanvier of France on Friday. Tanvier was hampered by a pulled groin muscle, no doubt expediting Goles' 6-2, 6-2 victory.

Graf entered the tournament as a lightly regarded challenger. This was supposed to have been an American affair, with three U.S. players seeded among the top five. Graf, who turned 15 in June, was distinguished mainly by being the youngest player in the tennis event.

But just as Sweden's Stefan Edberg did in the men's division, Graf made her reputation in Los Angeles.

Prior to the Olympics, her career highlight had been qualifying for the round of 16 at this year's Wimbledon.

"This is my biggest win, I think, yes," Graf said. "I thought I would come far, because I was in good shape, but I did not think I would win the tournament. This is good for my confidence."

Saturday, Graf was being interrogated by reporters as if she was the belated European answer to Andrea Jaeger and Tracy Austin -- a precocious teen-ager poised on the brink of the big time.

"I think all the tennis players in Europe are getting stronger," she said. "We have some good, younger people coming up from Italy and France."

And West Germany.

Graf is hoping to compete in 1988, when tennis becomes a full-fledged medal sport.

"This is a great feeling," Graf said. "I would like to do it again. I hope to go to (South) Korea."

LOL at making a mountain out of a mole hill. A British specialty. Her home country was hardly better; Graf must have been smothered by the press in Germany.

It speaks to Steffi's amazing forbearance that I know of only one instance when she took action to get a media credential revoked. (RTL at 1996 USO, and whatever RTL did, it was bad enough for other residents in her co-op building to file a police complaint, too.) If I had been in her shoes, I probably would have resorted to violence --think "Amendment I, please say hello to Amendment II"-- on a few occasions.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

I'm unhappy for Steffi not telling the world before her coming to India. But it's Steffi; who doesn't like to be in the limelight, but the world keeps her in there.

I guess, many fellow Indian fans also have angry about her secret visit; especially Delhi, Agra, Mumbai fans. But she could not escape before her leaving.

Here is a link about the details before her leaving:
http://indianexpress.com/article/spo...-impression/2/

Steffi Graf - My Best: "Steffi is the goddess of Tennis" : John McEnroe
"She let her racket do the talking. I've always looked up to her and the way she approached the game" : Pete Sampras
"In my opinion she 's the best lady that has ever played" : Andre Agassi
"She's one of the greatest players, maybe even greatest" : Richard Krajicek
"Steffi is the best all around player of all-time, regardless of surfaces" : Martina Navratilova
"Steffi is definitely the greatest singles player ever" : Billie Jean King

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Have to say I am more impressed by the teen who could make such an observation:

Its her aura that one is struck by and she was very punctual. The event was to start by 2.45 pm, Graf was there at 2.40 pm by the clock. We took a couple of group pictures with her and I got to stand right next to her. Both of us are at six feet height and Im glad Im not shorter or I would have been a tad bit embarrassed. She appeared so fit that she could probably play a three hour long tennis match and win it! the student noted. I was in awe of her manners, the way she carried herself. Her posture was straight and even her stroll spoke of her confidence. The reason why I found her inspirational was because her experiences were not confined to tennis there was a lot to learn from it, he added.

Not sure why anyone needs to be angry with what Steffi does with her life. She has had enough experiences dealing with fanatics all here life.
I am glad she could make it to India and come back safely.

When I've seen Steffi in person, her posture was the first thing that grabbed my attention. It's perfect, everything from her head to her feet, and she held it that way for the duration. It's almost impossible to not notice it.

2015 is almost here! So, setting up Steffi's roller coaster 1995:

Graf fit to defend
The Times
London, England
December 6, 1994

PAUL McNAMEE, the tournament director, said yesterday that Steffi Graf, who has won the tournament four times, will defend her Australian Open title next month despite being plagued by a back problem. McNamee said he had contacted Phil Di Picciotto, Graf's manager, to seek assurances that she would be available.

"At this stage, it's of no concern," McNamee said. "He (Di Picciotto) says that she is having treatment on her back and at this stage everything is all right.

"She's got enough time off between now and the tournament to get plenty of treatment and I would be surprised if she didn't get on top of the problem," he said.

Sweden's six-man Davis Cup committee has resigned, the day after Sweden won the trophy by beating Russia 4-1 in Moscow. The daily newspaper, Svenska Dagbladet, reported yesterday that the resignation was in protest at the heavy-handed tactics which had been employed by national federation in its dealing with the committee.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Hello and happy new year

1995 ! What a great year (on the tennis courts). One of my favorite, probably my favorite one actually.
I was interested in Tennis since 3years and was finally "old" enough to follow it as it should be done (missing school you know...)

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Calling a press conference to discuss the state of her health was not a good sign...

Wofford's Maynard ranked
The State
Columbia, SC
Friday, January 6, 1995
From Staff and Wire Reports

Wofford College women's tennis player Louise Maynard is ranked No. 31 in the nation in singles in NCAA Division II by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. A junior from Belton, Maynard had been the MVP each of her two years on the Wofford team. As a freshman in 1993, she was ranked No. 42.

Graf holding conference

German tennis star Steffi Graf, coming off a year in which back pain limited her to just two matches since the U.S. Open, is to discuss her health and her prospects for the year's first Grand Slam event in a conference call today. The Australian Open begins Jan. 16 in Melbourne, a tournament Graf won for the fourth time last year.

Pierce has new student

Despite being banned from Women's Tennis Association tournaments because of a history of disruptive behavior while coaching his own daughter, Mary, Jim Pierce was hired to mold the career of Marlene Weingartner, the latest German tennis prodigy.
