It was during her semi final against Kimiko Date. :)

It was during a tense game in the second set of the 1996 Wimbledon semi-final against Kimiko Date. Graf joked later that since she had ended up losing that game, she should have asked him for a divorce.

Steffi is God-like, period. There was so much tension at that point in the match; the fact that Steffi replied back just speaks to her sense of humor even in stressful situations! She is THE legend and the best player to ever grace the sport. :hearts:

I don't hate her now. I did hate her back then, but I was only 14 at the time.
And Arantxa was my #1 fave, and well, Steffi beat her so many times.
Plus before 1993 Monica was my idol and Steffi being her greatest rival... :bolt:
Actually, Steffi was possibly one of the most disliked people in Yugoslavia at that time.

You seem to be a Navratilova fan.
But how can you HATE Graf only because she toppled your favourite from #1, beat her clearly in Wimbledon and lifted the game to a higher level?
That seems to be very fanatical!

I know a few people from Ex-Yugoslavia. They ALL but one supported Graf against Seles when both fought for #1.

I can't believe that!
I have been to Zagreb and Ljubljana several times in the early 90ies and as a Steffi fan I talked with tennis fans there. Seles didn't seem to be very popular! They didn't like her (then) sometimes excentric behaviour off-court and screaming on-court.

By Yugoslavia I mean Serbia and Montenegro. And Monica was a BIG star.

Ah, but that's more a result of WW2 and Germany's support for Slovenia and Croatia against Milosevic's "Yugoslavia", IMO.

Graf being German certainly could have played its part in her being unpopular in Serbia. But the main reason was that she was Monica's main rival. I can't tell you how popular and loved Monica was around here in the early 90's. She was "Our little Mo". She was every little girl's idol.

Ii could have been a rivalry similar to Navratilova/Evert without the stabbing. Maybe not in the sheer number of matches (MN-CE=80 :eek: ) but tennis fans all over the world most definitely were robbed of a lot of high quality matches in 1993-95. :sad:
Nevertheless - most Seles fans value her 3 slam final wins against Graf (FO 1990, FO 1992, AO 1993) as her greatest career wins. And Graf fans think that her slam final wins against Seles (Wimbledon 1992, USO 1995 + 1996) are among Steffi's greatest wins as well.
Add to that their 1989 and 1999 FO semi final matches, the Hamburg 1991 final (one of the best clay court matches I ever saw!) and the dramatic 1998 Chase Championship match.
10 great matches - all classics indeed!

FO 1992 and USO 1995 will be among the top 10 greatest women's matches still in 20, 30 years!
