Maybe you're living in some strange parallel universe, because if Kim Clijsters
ever took Steffi to 3 sets at Wimby, you're the only one who saw that
match!! (j/k) :p

IIRC, the only time those two played was Wimbledon '99, and Steffi won
6-2, 6-2.

Sabby is 1-11 against Graf in slams. She lost 2 finals, 6 semis and 3 quarters. More than a quarter of her slam losses came against Steffi.

Without Graf Gaby would have beaten Zvereva in FO 88 final, would have won USO 88, beaten Sukova in AO 89 final and won Wimbledon 91 AT LEAST. And she could have won some slams more.
Had Sabby lived 10 years earlier she probably would have had more than 10 slams under her belt today. Bad luck, Gaby!!
But she can claim that she beat the greatest-ever 11 times ....

Remember when Martina Hingis beat Venus Williams, and in the post-match interview, she held some of the beads that had fallen out of Venus' hair during the match and said, "This is all that remains of Venus Williams."

Cruel but so funny! :haha: :haha:

Remember when Mary used to take looooong breaks between points to fix her hair? :lol:

Remember when Mary used to take loooooong breaks between points to fix her hair, sort out the problems with her eyes *and* play with her rosary beads. :lol:

Remember when Mary took such a long bathroom break while playing Conchita at RG that Conchita took out a book and started to read! :lol:

Remember "4 rain delays and a tie-break" when Conchita and Mary were playing Lisa and Rennae at Wimbledon and after several rain delays, when Conchita and Mary had lost the 1st set and the match had got to a tie-break in the 2nd, Rennae simply refused to play anymore and insisted the match be suspended until the next day, despite protests by her partner, her opponents and the umpire! :lol:

Remember the next afternoon when, after several more rain delays and having lost the tie-break easily, Mary was so incredibly happy to be able to finally, a day later, go home! You gotta love Mary!! :worship:

Remember when Vivi & Paola were an unknown doubles team losing the early rounds of all the tournaments.

Remember when Vivi def. Martina Hingis at Wimbledon.

Remember when Magui def. Mary at Wimbledon.

Remember when Arantxa nearly won Wimbledon. :sad:

Remember when Arantxa lost the RG 96 final and the crowd made her cry. :sad:

Remember when Monica, Steffi, Arantxa and Conchita were the top 4 players in the world.

Remember when Koukalova beat a severly injured Seles at Australian Open 03, and at the end of the match she started celebrating as if she had fully deserved the victory, and later on in the press conference when asked:

"You did realize that your opponent was injured, didnt you?"

She said:

"No, she was injured?"

WTF, Monica was on the floor and couldnt stand up...:rolleyes: :sad:


OMG! Don't even get me started on that bitch Koukalova! :tape:
