Re: How was Steffi Graf career in early 90s,if she had no dad scandal in 1990 ?
I think the difficulties predated the stuff with her father - 1989 already fed up with tennis, pressure, hassle and thinking about quitting tennis for track. Wasn't it around then she had her bedroom painted black too (which I noticed Agassi did also from his book - destiny indeed!)? I think the 1989-92 phase was difficult for her in multiple ways of which the father was only the most visible - a lot of growing up, sorting out, she had that photographer boyfriend in NY those years too who no doubt was good for all kinds of growing up :-) But parents didn't like him apparently etc. Some tension with Slozil too I think both over the growing up issues and on curt difficulties. By 1992, she had Heinz as her coach and starting to sort herself out a bit as well as starting to learn to deal with the father stuff.
She would have looked so much better in the styles the girls wear now!
