Re: The Gabriela Sabatini Thread!
The belgian TV had decided to do something different: they showed the end of every match this afternoon before showing the big "meal": Safina/Flipkens
Reminds of when I lived in Singapore for a couple of years and the local coverage of tennis on STAR Sports usually meant showing a Paradorn Srichaphan match on Court 18 or something even if there were a dozen other really competitive matches more worthy of being shown. Of course on the bright side he usually lost before the fourth round, so one didn't have to put up with that rubbish for very long, but still.
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)
