Steffi: Not a Glacial Bitch!

1532 Views 19 Replies 14 Participants Last post by  King Lindsay
Having always despised Steffi Graf for her severity and throwing Martina Navratilova's pre-eminence into question, I finally saw a video of her '99 FO win over Hingis. She was so sage and earthy (and rosemary and tyme.) And her maternalism towards a squalling Hingis -- MH was clearly training wheels for Juden or whatever her kid with Andre is called.
In short -- I don't mind that Steffi Graf one bit!

Nice to see someone else starting Steffi posts. I, like so many other Graf fans, can't wait for the day they corner her in a commentary booth post-playing days and pick her brains about her experiences and the players and the tour. I think we're all in for quite a few words of wisdom- not to mention surprises.

Oh, and the Juden reference is tempting, but I promised myself a few months ago not to go there because of an insensitive post I made on Daniela Hantuchova's Auschwitz appetite- not good form or direction- best not to go there in the guise of humor.
they should do that before the last of the players she played against disappear.
