Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Hello djul14, how are you? For me, Steffi's backhand slice,forehand,footwork,accurate high toss service all are unique. We can't compare other with Graf weapons. Her unique style is one of sources to consider her 'The Greatest of all time' than number of titles for me .

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

I am fine, busy but fine.
This little article pleased me, as I think that the backhand slice (not only Steffi's slice but in tennis) is an underrated weapon

Someone (God bless whoever you are) just uploaded a whole bunch of Steffi matches on youtube. Among them, the 94 AO,93RG,95RG,93Wim and 93 USO finals. Loved the 94 AO final!

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Thanks for the info MistyGrey.

I feel myself as a great Steffi fan,but there are many people greater than my fanship.

I stop searching Youtube for some days,because of there are no satisfied results ,but you never lost passions like me to check youtube daily.

Once, LYNZ sent me a PM that he will upload some Steffi's videos( i don't know what happend to him.I hope he will come back soon for us).

May be greeva1979 (the uploader of new videos) wasn't on tennisforum,i also hope greeva also join here.

Hello Selecao82,thanks for visiting SG-Tribute site.Some photos added recently by an author.So check the site too . http://sgtribute.blogspot.com
