Did any one notice how Svetlana looked like Steffi Graf with pony tail and her facial profile...especially the nose? It just struck me how they looked alike! And, by the way, isn't meant to be an insult so don't bad rep me! :rolleyes:

The hair style and the headband were pure Graf yesterday ( plus the forehand and a lot of her plays) - I thought I was seeing things....glad it wasn't just me. Now if she starts using the towel between points to calm her self down...........Its kinda strange though to hear "Vamos " instead of "komm jetz" - kinda like a one womam wimbledon 95..

Sveta AKA: SECRET PROJECT X

:lol: She does resemble Steffi. Sveta's like some big science project
in a secret tennis lab in Russia where they decided to combine
a couple of the two greatest tennis players of the 1990's. Steffi and ASV.
The forehand/slice is Graf, the footspeed/volleys/2 handed backhands
ASV (the Vamos, and having Emilio coach her adds more bite to Secret
Project X) and the fight is a combo of both players. ;)


*Doesn't Sprem remind you of Monica Seles?

You can just see her walking her dogs with a big Graf Alsatian on oneside and one of those small fluffy things ASV liked on the other..........

Both Graf and Svetlana look very similar :eek: and the big forehand also very similar. :eek: Svetlana can be easily Steffi Graf mark 2. :lol: Are they related? :lol:

You get the impression that she watched a lot of Graf as a kid - if you think about her age she would have seen FO92 at 6 and everything through to FO99 at the time she was forming her basic shots and style. She is the end of the group of kids who watched live Graf at her strongest. Next its the ones who watched Venus ........

Yes, I thought about that too a couple of times, she surely has some resemblance with Steffi.

Yes, I kinda got a little rush the first time I noticed the resemblance. She looked and hit alot like Steffi several times.Especially the inside out forehand. It is good to see her finally playing to her potential.:)

WTF is Emilio Sanchez Aka: The Barcelona Mad Scientist
really trying to create with Sveta? ;)

I seriously think he's coaching her to use all the famous Steffi forehand
shots that denied ASV from winning grand slams and Tier 1's.

What about the walk/strut? Isn't that freaky? Again a eerie mix
of Steffi/Asv. (Cue: Twilight Zone music. Enter: Rod Sterling)

Yeah, when I saw her on tv, I thought that she's looks a lot like Steffi Graf. Especially when I saw her nose. She's like a bigger built version of Steffi Graf, at least for me.
