Peak Graf vs peak Seles

Who would you favor in this matchup. By that I mean the Graf of 88-89 or 95-96 vs the Seles of 91-92. I would favor Graf on grass, fast hard courts, and indoors. Would favor Seles on rebound ace. Not sure who I would favor on clay. Overall I would give Graf more of an edge than Seles.

Re: Peak Graf vs peak Seles

I do think the Graf of the 94 Australian Open would beat any version of Seles on rebound ace, but I dont believe 1 tournament or 1 match is not enough to go by peak on. It has to be produced at more than one event to count as a true peak IMHO.

Treats, what are you talkin about? Do you mean that is when Monica started like treats like candy and chocolate? I thought that was sometime in 1994, atleast that is what her autobiography indicated. Their only Wimbledon final was 1992, long before that.

I noticed you voted for peak Seles even on grass. I always love to corner those rare ones who go for the aforementioned lol options of my polls.

Oh I thought it said "excluding grass"

Yeah no I meant to vote for Seles on everything but grass.

Also you're a tool.

Re: Peak Graf vs peak Seles

Here are how their stats compare peak to peak:

Seles peak years 1991-1992. Won 6 of 8 slams. I would note she skipped a slam except the slam she skipped is one she never won which makes that pretty much moot. Match record of 74-6 in 1991 and 70-5 in 1992. 10 titles in each year.

Graf peak years 1988, 1989, 1995, 1996. Won 13 of 14 slams played. Match records of 72-3, 86-2, 47-2, 54-4. 11 tournament titles in 1988, 14 tournament titles in 1989, 9 tournament titles in 1995, and 7 tournament titles in 1996.

Statistically anyway Graf has Seles beat by a huge margin peak to peak. Seles never matched Graf's level of dominance in her peak years. For that reason mainly I give the edge to peak Graf.

Re: Peak Graf vs peak Seles

This has been debated numerous times over the years, so need to have another thread open to discuss it
