Re: The Italian Open Championships

Some photos of recent Italian Open champions

Venus Williams in 1999




Monica Seles in 2000




Jelena Dokic in 2001




Serena Williams in 2002




Kim Clijsters in 2003




Amelie Mauresmo in 2004




Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez in 2010




Maria Sharapova in 2011 with runner-up Samantha Stosur




Maria Sharapova in 2012 with runner-up Li Na


Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)
