OK.

Fair enough (on the what Seles could do part).

We still have some slight disagreement on your reaction of Gunther Parche's intentions.

I could see you feeling he did his job, if he would have permanently, physically harmed Seles. He didn't.

The rest was up to Seles. Not that it makes her bad or what he did good. But when you say what you say, you don't account for the fact that not every player "would of went out like that".

And to be quite honest, maybe you and other more rational tennis fans may have felt Seles would have maxed out at 11-13 majors. But what you don't realize is, there are some of her more vigilant fans, that feel she could have won as much majors or been as good as Serena, Chrisse, Martina, Court and Graf.

That's what I think you don't realize. And by the way, this response was originally only the top 2 lines ("OK, nicely written. But you still didn't answer my Serena question"). I just added the next few. Lol
I don't even wanna THINK about Serena getting stabbed.

If this mark is always there how come most of people have voted her as all time greatest in every poll and why?

Most people? You talking about the computer nerds the frequent the web? They are not a mirror of the real world and all the people.

Case in point. Try to talk about Graf slam count, without the stabbing being injected! Can't be done.

Re: Why is Graf overlooked?

Steffi was amazing athlete for her time and she had one of the most beautiful styles in history. Amazingly consistent as well.

Yes, Seles beating Graf in the Slam finals of the French Open (twice) and the Australian Open are only products of the imagination of the Seles fans

Matt it is very plain to see that you are a Graf-Tard, and one that doesn't do his/her research well either. Because you have just put your foot in your mouth.

Here are 3 slams where Seles beat Graf.. French Open TWICE and the Austrailian Open!!

As Graf the opponent!

1990 Roland Garros (Paris) Final 7-6, 6-4 Monica Seles

1992 Roland Garros (Paris) Final 6-2, 3-6, 10-8 Monica Seles

1993 Australian Open (Melbourne) Final 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 Monica Seles


Also, Graf's Slam Count not being Tainted is only products of the imagination of the Graf fans!!

Wow!

I'll defend Matt01 here (before he does).

He was making fun of "Graftards" and not supporting them.

Didn't you read and process his thread (as well as read his other ones)?
