Justine revived the classic tennis game Steffi practiced and created her own RG legacy. She dominated the game with severe physical limitation of being tiny and thus having no serve. She also deserves the hype.
well said mate,but i never saw you on this thread.

A while ago I wrote there was a topic how other (male) players respected Steffi and I said that there was a male (not a very known one: sam warburg) made the comment to her; it's an honor to be on the court with you. here it is at 8.23 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Yq8P...&feature=feedu

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Not sure if any here have seen this already, I didn't, in case you did, it's to good to see only once. What a player she was and still looks great, love seeing her hit with no ponytail. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gp7W-O5-7fc
