For some odd reason I thought you meant Penetta the Piñata. So I thought you called Peer Graf. :lol:

It's difficult to imagine Steffi vamosing and fistpumping but other than that I can see the slight facial resemblance.

Massive nose, you mean.Golovin's got that too but that doesn't make her resemble Graf. So the OP definitely has a point. Makarova does resemble her a bit (imagine a fat Steffi and that would be what she'd have probably looked like - which is why the OP said "baby Graf")

^ :eek: Nadia is not a bad looking girl at all, but the clothes are all wrong for her body type.

Anyhow, Makarova played some nice aggressive but sensible tennis against Ivanovic and it's nice to see she's been able to back it up.

I agree about Makarova (I was thinking that during the match, 18 year old Graf). And perhaps Petrova does look like a Pinata. Bring back the circus awning outfit!

Agree. The Graf thing is what I thought about after that match.

She does grunt a little like a baby, or at least like an 8 year old child. But way more tolerable than de brito. And she does look a little like Graf. So baby graf is a good way to describe her?

You won't have to worry about de Brito any time soon, unless you attend the first round of 25Ks ;) :tape:

Only in appearance. Totally different game.

This is a good pic of her resemblance:

No, that isn't young enough in the Graf pic.

This is kind of a bad one (http://0.tqn.com/d/womenshistory/1/0/0/W/2/steffi_graf_1984_1234898a.jpg), but it gives an idea of the younger Graf. Or this one. (http://www.espn.co.uk/PICTURES/CMS/200/255.2.jpg)

I liked Nadia's dress and having watched her last year and again this year i reckon Nadia has lost some weight and was looking very fit.
