Are you sure? Don't you have ASTRA 19E? If you do, it's on 11.837(H) 27.500. Hope you can find it.
Unfortunately I don't have a DVD recorder, so I won't be able to record it.

Sure, I am sure. I don't have Astra or whatever (satellite thing), I have some German Channels and still had them on my tv since like forever (I live near Germany), but not this one.

Thanks- I forgot about this match. Perfect quality to watch- no glaring sun and you can really follow the ball well. One of my favorite matches for Graf is the 1991 San Antonio final, but the camera is on the wrong side of the court, so the glare from the sun causes you to lose the ball easily. A shame, because it was Steffi at her best against Seles at her best.

You're welcome, I personally like her matches with the Wislon rackets more and the matches later on her career, because she was so fluent in the latter stages of her career. This match is one of my favorites, becasue of the way they construct the points. I never liked her matches with Monica Seles tenniswise, I prefer her matches against Sabatini, because she had to be very creative against the ball artist. take care.

Thanks for the link. Enjoyed the match.
Loved this comment from Martina N:
"You think you can hit to her backhand after she serves but she hops two steps to the side after her serve and hits a forehand (of what was suppossed to be a backhand for other players) and so there is no backhand".

Remember this match so good, but thanks for the link still good to watch it again.


I don't know if I already speak about this match, but there is a (unfamous) Graf v Seles, the 1991 Hambourg final (so on clay), what a crazy level, the 2 players at their best from the start to the end (3sets for sure), not a lot of errors, a really outsatnding match (interupted by the rain, they had to finish it the following day), but the level was still the same !
I really love this match. One of my favorite.

I've always wanted to see that match. It wasn't televised here in the States, and all I could do was follow the score on the web.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Yes, this was a great match. I have it on DVD too. Lots of winners from both, few unforced errors. I actually enjoy all the Steffi-Monica matches in general as they always have great rallies.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

That Hamburg match was very good, both were playing well and it was interesting as in those months Mónica and Steffi and Gabriela were playing one another frequently and the top of women's tennis was a close call.
Different topic, but I find this so fun to watch and especially notice what crowds for a doubles match!

Yeah, this match was very nice to watch, Gabriela gave Graf a good run for her money especially considering her last results against Graf (75 60 in 1994 Toronto and 61 60 at that year's French
BTW,how've you been WarrioR?

I have been fine my friend. On the court a lot, still play with the Graf racket she retired with; the Black Wilson, it's a great racket. How are you?
