Re: Graf-Seles, 1993, and all that Jazz.

All you wrote is wrong:

1)Seles was 8 to 2 GS finals plus 3:0 YECs plus 2:0 Liptons ahead, it cannot be much clearer. The ranking system shows that Graf was a good number two, but number one? LOL...

Re: Graf-Seles, 1993, and all that Jazz.

Seles was the number one - clearly - when the stabbing happened. Graf profitted from the stabbing. Seles was on her way to the greatest ever.

In 1987,1988 Navratilova and Evert had a huge slump,...

Re: Graf-Seles, 1993, and all that Jazz.

Amen, Hingis won because Monica was slow - which she wouldn't have been without the stabbing. Seles was very fast before the stabbing, and the few times she was fit after the comeback, she beat...

Re: Graf-Seles, 1993, and all that Jazz.

Amen! A stabbing is a bit more than getting a thread letter or getting bad press (which Monica got, too, sadly enough). Anders wie die Graf, konnte Monica mit schlechter Presse und Morddrohungen...

Re: Graf-Seles, 1993, and all that Jazz.

Tell me about Navratilova's and Evert's slump in 1987,1988, they lost so much more matches then they had done in their previous years. That helped Graf a LOT. And Navratilova had a REAL slump, Graf...

Re: Graf-Seles, 1993, and all that Jazz.

Seles in her prime vs. Graf 4:3 = Seles is Number 1. (Even with the stabbing their h2h in GS finals is even ! )

Re: Graf-Seles, 1993, and all that Jazz.

The difference between Monica before and after the stabbing was that it was a complete different player. Especially in terms of fitness and in terms of willpower. The prove: When she was fast, she...

Re: Graf-Seles, 1993, and all that Jazz.

Why quiet. It is GOOD that you bring it up. It show how good Navratilova became again after her slump in 87,88. That made women's Tennis so good again in terms of competition in the early 90s, which...

Re: Graf-Seles, 1993, and all that Jazz.

Forget it, Seles won 4 out of 3 in when she was in her prime. 3 out of 4 in GS. Give me one single article or one single expert in the world who said in 92 or 93 that Graf was number one. You live in...

Re: Graf-Seles, 1993, and all that Jazz.

Which is not true. I saw Seles in person in 1993, she was soooo thin, actually I was scared that she might have too little weight on her. You are trying to say that she went downhill before the...

Re: Graf-Seles, 1993, and all that Jazz.

In fact, Graf fanatics do. They want to wipe out that the stabbing and it's impact occurs. And part of the impact was an open field for Graf.

Re: Graf-Seles, 1993, and all that Jazz.

Why are you here if it doesn't matter to you? Also, according to your theory Seles wasn't fit before 1995 (which is right), so she missed these majors due to the stabbing (still your words!). So Graf...

Good message, because it is the truth. Graf fans lie all the time. Every psychotherapist would have his hands full with people like Da Forehand, LDV and Calimero.

Re: Graf-Seles, 1993, and all that Jazz.

They were close because Graf was a good number TWO. In terms of major titles it wasn't close at all. But thanks for your insult, is there a nest somewhere? Rats who haven't had anything interesting...
