Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

[And I haven't scratched the surface. I mean, sometimes her humor is the off-kilter variety, or playing the bumbling fool variety, or the "brick joke" variety, so a lot of people won't/don't appreciate it, but it's there.[/quote]

Thank you for taking the time to post all those replies
Don't think the regular sports press can understand subtle humor, that would be expecting too much of them...

Few more that I can recall:

After beating Monica Seles at Wimbledon in 92:
Bud Collins: Were you afraid of her??
Steffi: Laughs and the says "no not really!!"

After 95 FO:
Bud Collins again: I haven't see you crying (or being emotional) before!!
Steffi: Then, you have just not seen me enough!!
