When I was younger I used to hate Steffi (I'm an ASV fan, you dont need more explanation ) However, now I know that you like a person when you realise you miss her a lot. Tennis is not the same since Steffi left



Hey, does anyone know what match is this? I'd like to know

If she hadn't retired that prematurely, tennis world could have been different by now. Williams sisters could not win a Slam for as long as she was around. They won 5 out 10 played since she retired.

Yeah, really missed her...
She is really one of a kind....

Wondering if there is any current player on tour who plays like Steffi?

Thanx

I find that Steffi's outfit quite cool, maybe coz nowadays I'm tired of seeing "weird" outfits

When I first saw it(and that was in a magazine because Steffi had not played then because of injury) I didn`t realy like it but then I saw her play in it and I started to like it, but maybe was that too because she stayed undefeated in it

the only player I remember who tried to copy Steffi`s style was Irina Spirlea

i have to admit that i always hated Graf, she was the star in lot of my nightmares.....but i have to say that i cheered for her in her come back in 1998 and i really enjoyed her win in Roland Garros 99 and i have to admit that it was very sad when she decided to retire... it was hard to realize that she would not be on courts aynmore....

Steffi! She defined the word CLASS. Thre is so much the younger players could learn from watching how she handled herself, in bothe victory and (rare) defeat!
