Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2
I try to keep as up to date as possible on Steffi's fairly recent and current activities. But I have a few questions concerning two of Steffi's exhibition matches:
1. I know Steffi played Kimiko Date about two years ago in an exhibition. Did Steffi beat Kimiko in that match?. What was the final score?. Also, has Steffi played Kimiko in any other exhibition matches?. And does anyone know if they plan to play eachother again?. I think Kimiko returned to the pro game shortly after this match?. If true, it makes me wonder if Kimiko was using this match against Steffi as a primer for her return to the pro level?. I know it was only an exhibition, but maybe Kimiko was thinking big picture?.
2. I'm pretty sure Steffi played Gabriela Sabatini around 4 years ago in an exhibition?. If I remember right, Steffi beat Sabatini easily in that exhibition?. Does anyone know the score?. Just like the old days, I think Steffi handled Sabatini's serve with little difficulty. After the match, I think Sabatini even commented how Steffi could return to the pro game with no problem, based on how well Steffi played in their exhibition. Has Steffi played Sabatini in any other exhibitions?. Lastly, is Steffi planning to play Sabatini again in any upcoming exhibition matches?.
I know there is a wealth of Steffi knowledge on this site, so I'm hoping to tap some of it, and maybe get some answers?.
Thank you for your time,
