Hi Camilia! Really great to see you again.

I also was (and still am) very busy. The little time that was left for the forum was spent almost completely in Natasha's thread because she's a Hall of Famer now.

But apart from being too busy at times I am fine. How about you? How is the thesis going?

Well, congrats to Natasha

I answered your question in a PM cause I don't think anybody else wants to read the boring details of my setback

I really happy to keep me and my posts in your memory hard disk( heart or brain?)!

BTW we should develop SGT site my dear selecao82,..


OK! OK!

I found this part of article from a old message board(CNN). Could anybody give complete article?

Part of that article:
What Tennis Has Given Me The Most by Steffi Graf with Andrea Leand

Steffi Graf has seen the Kipling quote hung above the entrance to Wimbledon's Cebtre Court

many times. It says' "If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two impostors

just the same..." In the last few years, Graf has come to embody those words as she has

continued to remain the number one player in the world despite severe injuries and anguish

over tax problems in Germany. She has remained graceful throughout the disasters,

emerging- believe it or not- even stronger and more self-confident. Graf is still as fiercely

competitive on the court, but she's become more relaxed off it. Today Steffi prefers to be

called "Stefanie"; she laughs freely when she's with her boyfriend or among friends; she even

has a few smiles for the ever-invasive press. The once reclusive Graf encouraged Jennifer

Capriati to return to the tour by inviting the American over for barbecues and practices in

Florida. She represented her country this year in the Fed Cup and is eager to try for another

gold medal for Germany at this summer's Olympics. Such enthusiasm over her eleven-year

career has amazed her peers. Even with her father in jail, charged with tax evasion and

facing trial this summer, Graf continues to move forward with her life. She has learned to

smile at rumors and dismiss daily press reports.... Stephanie is most proud that she has

learned to deal with problems- whether physical or emotional- mostly on her own. "I definitely

have never gone to a psychologist. Once you do that, it's too late and you don't find your way

out," she says. "This past year and a half has been the toughest time in my career. With so

many injuries, especially to my back, I have not been able to train like I usually do. I lost a lot

of confidence in myself because I didn't feel like I was as fit to play and as prepared for

matches. I started to get my confidence back after I won the French Open last year. I had not

played one clay court tournament to prepare for it and decided to play Paris days before the

Grans Slam began. But when I won it, I was so happy because I realized that I didn't have to

train so many hours to win. I realized that I could win with my mind, win with better strategy

and win with stronger will." "I was able to win the other Grand Slams afterwards, Wimbledon

and the US Open and then the Corel WTA Championships, but I still have not been able to

resume my conditioning training. Obviously I have other difficulties off court and have had to

spend a lot of time travelling to meet with my lawyers. I learned more about finance the last

year than I knew for my entire eleven-year career, which is something since I've never been

concerned about money or buying things. I've always played tennis because I love it so

much. I firmly believed had my father not managed my finances, I would not have been able

to concentrate solely on my tennis. My father took care of the finances which allowed me to

do what I loved to do- play tennis." "Although this has been a tough time on me and my

family, my mother has taught me to look at the lighter side of life. She reminds me what I

have to be happy about. I may not be a 100% fit for the pro tpur but, as my mother tells me, I

am certainly healthy and able to live a full life. I may not be able to run for miles or sprint

around the track,like I used to, but I can live a normal life and walk and move without pain.

My mother also points out what tennis has given me and all that I have achieved in the

game. There are experiences I have had and places I have been to that I would not have

seen or done had I gone to university or had a different job. I even remember the juniors well

when I was just 13 and 14. My mother would pack me up in our station wagon and we would

travel to the other junior tournaments with the other girls and moth......

I'm not sure if you are offended by me using the word "everybody" or if you are liking it, sorry but your sentence isn't clear to me

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

The article is from 1996, and this author wrote for Tennis Magazine, but I don't have it.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

I collected Tennis magazine from 1993 until 1996 so I may have the exact magazing that contains this article. I'll go look for it in my mom's house this weekend and if I find it, I'll transcribe it for you and post it here.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Thanks dolldot for the little news.

I read a stat in the thread about Sabatini/Novotna and was quite astonished. As it's percentage it's very reliable :


Clay court singles career winning percentage
Rank Player Wins Losses Win %

1 Chris Evert 316 20 94.05
2 Steffi Graf 273 30 90.1
3 Justine Henin* 122 19 86.52
4 Monica Seles 142 25 85.03
5 Martina Hingis 109 25 81.34
6 Martina Navratilova 202 47 81.12
7 Gabriela Sabatini 196 49 80
8 Venus Williams* 127 35 78.4
9 Lindsay Davenport 120 35 77.42
10 Conchita Martinez 294 88 76.96


Not bad for her "worst" surface

Where do they find those stats ?

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

I don't know that you are really a Steffi fan or not,but I can only tell you that don't care other threads. 3 moderaters are Navratilova fans. And 'the computer' also. LDVtennis stopped contributing here(BFTP) only because of that reason. I'm not saying myself,but from his PM. Even you have history stats and posted here,you won't get moderator status by Rollo(sorry Rollo,but it's true).
