Peak Graf vs Peak Serena

We bought a time machine, and took 1988 Steffi and 2002 Serena to the current year in a 5 match meeting against each other...

1- Australia - Rod Laver
2- Roland Garros - Phillipe Chatrier
3- Wimbledon - Central Court
4- US Open - Arthur Ashe
5- Miami - Stadium

Who wins?

Re: Peak Graf vs Peak Serena

Then technically, poor Steffi would be stuck with a weak racket while Serena? pounded heavy metal balls down to the baseline

I still think we have a few weeks before we see more of these sorts of threads, but Graf 3-2

Re: Peak Graf vs Peak Serena

To my knowledge, Graf never played on Plexicushion. Would be difficult to gauge her performance.

Neither would 2002 Serena Plexicushion is quite different to the Rebound Ace that both would've been comfortable on.

Re: Peak Graf vs Peak Serena

5-0 for Serena.

Graf cannot touch Serena Slam.

Graf 1988



Compare that to Serena Slam:





Just look at the pace of shots. The aggression. Worlds apart. Makes 1988 look like country club tennis.

Re: Peak Graf vs Peak Serena

I voted 4-1 for Serena. I think Graf would beat Serena at the French. The other 4 I had to go with Serena.
Just looking at pics from 88 and pics from now and comparing the pace of shots is silly. If Graf grew up with the modern technology etc, her forehand would be just as pacey and hard as Serena's. The increased pace is more to do with technology and the greats of yesteryear have the hand eye coordination to be greats in the modern era...
__________________
Of even more significance, there's this little gap in Graf's resume the size of the hole in the ozone layer: It's called Monica Seles. Was Graf the best female player of all time? She wasn't even the best in the heart of her career.

Re: Peak Graf vs Peak Serena

graf would have had a remote chance on clay on all other surfaces she would have been blasted into oblivion.

Against henin she would have only stood a small chance on grass
Same for clijsters.
