Re: Seles' finest hour - Australia 1993 (high quality youtube footage)

It is OK with me when someone says Graf *would* not be the GOAT if Seles had not been stabbed. That is a respectable opinion.

But it is not OK to put asterisks on Graf's slams. That would be...

Re: Seles' finest hour - Australia 1993 (high quality youtube footage)

Even without the stabbing Graf most probably would have had more slams than Navratilova. And the grand slam.
PLUS some more prestigious slam final wins against Seles.
Seles's game suited Graf very...

Re: Seles' finest hour - Australia 1993 (high quality youtube footage)

Or how many slams Seles would have won if Graf's dad had not been such an idiot and caused an ugly blackmail scandal?
Graf had to deal with a lot of trouble and injuries herself. She is the last who...

Re: Seles' finest hour - Australia 1993 (high quality youtube footage)

Well, Graf never lost to Seles on fast hard-courts. Why should she have lost to Monica in the USO 93 final?
And I don't think Graf played so shabby in the FO 92 final against Seles that we can...

Re: Seles' finest hour - Australia 1993 (high quality youtube footage)

Of course interruptions break momentum.
And Seles had gained a lot of weight.
The emotional stress caused by the stabbing and - what many Seles fans try to downplay - her father dying of cancer...

Re: Seles' finest hour - Australia 1993 (high quality youtube footage)

She came back to the tour in 1995, aged just 21.
Same age Navratilova won her first slam.

Re: Seles' finest hour - Australia 1993 (high quality youtube footage)

I remember Graf doing herself in in the last set.
Tons of unforced errors. Although she hit more winners even in this 2-6 set.
Seles played very consistent, though. And hit some great serves.

Re: Seles' finest hour - Australia 1993 (high quality youtube footage)

This one match was one of Monica's finest.
On her best surface and on Steffi's worst - slow hard-court.
In January-April 1993 Monica won 15 of 16 matches and lost 6 sets.
In January-April 1992 she...

Re: Peak Graf vs Peak Serena

2002 Serena lost to Shaughnessy, Schnyder, Rubin and still maturing Belgians Clijsters & Henin.
Peak Graf would not have done that.

Re: Peak Graf vs Peak Serena

2002 Serena was a fine athlete, yes.
In the same league as Graf!

Re: Peak Graf vs Peak Serena

Peak Serena vs peak Graf could be close (meaning 3-2 or 4-1 in Graf's favour).
But average Graf vs. average Serena not.
5-0 in Graf's favour - at least!

Re: Peak Graf vs Peak Serena

Please don't say that you want to compare a Henin who came back from a 2-year break with a peak Graf.
Please.

Re: Peak Graf vs Peak Serena

Well, Serena is no slouch!

OK, there is apparently a little bias in her favour here because many posters are too young to have watched Steffi.

Re: Peak Graf vs Peak Serena

Yes, losing a set to Zvonareva, struggling against tennis titan Capriati with 36 76 62 in the semis and beating clay-court specialist Venus Williams with 76 63 in the FO finals is really impressive. ...

Not much risk for adidas, those one or two years.

Re: Bombshell??Mauresmo will play her final tournament next week in Paris before reti

She played a one-handed backhand and didn't grunt like a pig.
That alone is reason to like her.

But when we include Court, King and their stats in discussions about GOATs and records we have to include Wills, Lenglen and the 19th century players and their stats as well. Which seems rather...
