I didn't know this compatriot( Angus ),but he's very one-sided and not objective.Fortunately we meet on this forum some open-minded Steffi's fan like Irma and RKM for example .
Angus grow up

In Slams though (bar Wimbledon), Seles had the edge over pretty much anyone from 1991 on until the ending of her first career.
I was talking about h2h's where Seles didn't have a clear dominance. Their h2h during 90-93 was 5-4.
Seles won two matches in 1990 while the h2h during 91-93 was on Graf's favor 3-2. I also said that Seles was beating everyone else which also could be related somwhow with your point about Monica winning all the important tourneys.

Yes they were. With some luck and civility we'll get some of that fun back

But what WON'T happen in this thread is a Graf-Seles food fight between a few crazy fanatics

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but it will be done with respect for each other or Rollo will get out the hammer.

When a disruptive person comes in again please shoot me private message so I can nip it in the bud.

Thanks to the 95% of you who make it pleasure to be the mod here.

Sabatini led Graf 7-1 in head to head matches between 1990 and 1992 GOATini, not Seles, the only one responsable for Graf´s "slump"

At least you're funny.

It is also possible that when Seles beat Graf the first few times, in Berlin and RG `90, Graf got demoralized by Seles so she started losing to the likes of Sabatini and Sanchez while Seles at that time always had the mental edge at the big tourneys over her competitors.

My patience with some posters in this thread is finished

Please read post 64 everyone. I shall ban the next deliberately inflammatory person from the Blast and pursue that ban across the board if he or she continues to try and disrupt this thread. Junior posters in particular should be careful.

Well, Gaby always has nice things to say about Steffi and I trust her.

It shouldn't and (believe it or not) it isn't held against Steffi.

Of course, in the alternate Selestial parallel universe, Steffi is probably personally guilty of the stabbing herself - the stabber was supposedly merely executing her explicit orders, right? Wrong! Outside your upside down twisted alternate universe the stabbing is 0% Steffi's own fault.

Simple. Without personal problems and bad back, Steffi would have at least 25 slams right now, while Seles would 5 or less.
