In the 1988 Wimbledon final Steffi hit 55 winners and made only 21 unforced errors (Martina 20 & 14). In the last two sets it was 34 winners and 9 UEs for Steffi (Martina 8 & 7).Absolutely. That match is only talked about when a slam is within reach... which means only once since 1988 and Serena was a nervous wreck. Even tho Steffi was near perfection in the ‘88 FO final, when I think back to that year and her achievements the crowning glory is always those two breathtaking sets against Navratilova in the W final. It was shocking and utterly amazing. A literal changing of the guard right before ones very eyes in real time.
Glorious, even though I was devastated and pissed. Ha!
According to: 1988 Wimbledon F: Martina Navratilova vs Steffi Graf Detailed Stats | Tennis Abstract
Interesting that Navratilova made less UEs than the winner Steffi.
Steffi broke the 6-time-defending champion Navratilova in 7 of her last 7 service games. On grass, in Wimbledon.
