Steffi is 17-0 against Manuela, 11-0 against Katerina and 8-0 against Maggie.

Amazing that not one sister could manage an upset. Manuela had her chances in a couple of matches but to no avail...

Great head to head for steffi. Maleeva sisters :o

well i was kinda amazed. I thought manuela mighta beat steffi in the early days. I thought that given that there are three sisters and a combined 36 matches they played against steffi over many years that one of them might of racked up a win.

To balance things out (kind of) I can think of two players, both mediocre, with winning head to heads against steffi. Liz Smylie 1-0 (nee sayers) and Jo Durie 4-3!!

Jo Durie "mediocre"??? Well, that's your conception, not mine anyway! Joe has reached number 5 spot in the world in 83/84, and was a talented player. If she's mediocre, that means that the likes of Kohde, Bunge, Maleeva's, Jordan, Garrison, Rubin, Schnyder.. are mediocre... That's not an objective appreciation of their talent. And, tell me, who is not mediocre, then?

True. Jo was at least a Quarter-Finalist at all four Slams, and reached the last four at the US Open and Roland Garros in 1983:that can never be called mediocre. Nor were the Maleevas remotely 'mediocre' (although Maggie's Slam record wasn't the best.)

At least Manuela gave Graf some very tight matches in the 80s. The worst was Nathalie Tauziat, who in 21 matches against Graf, didn't even win a set. Hell, she didn't take Graf to a tiebreaker even once!

well. even though they ARE sisters, they had very different game-styles IMO, even though mama maleeva was a strict little woman and had them go through her training methods.
but what their game-styles vary, thier power doesn't - all 3 had no chance against the outbursting forehand and the glorious head to head.
that's why it wasn't just win/loss, it was match wins dominated as well. she lost just 6 sets to the supiorior of the sisters - Manuela. btw - 4 of these sets were taken by Manuela in the Maleeva-surface (and what COULD have been thier slam had there been a slam like that) - Carpet.
Manuela was a top10 player in all but the last two meetings, so she ain't no pushover.
Katerina could only take one set in 11 matches. moreover, she could only win 6 games from steffi APART that one set. as for lil' Maggie who in my opinion is a solid rock in the world of tennis (up to a couple of years ago, age has caught up with her) could take just one set as well.
all in all Maleevas took 8 sets from graf. and that's a whole lot IMO.

I don't care if steffi is the greatest or not. I came across this head to head and was kinda shocked. that. is. all.

Come to think of it, Liz Smylie can hardly be classed mediocre either, she's a former wimbledon champion.
