If I remember well then it was in the exhbition tournament wich was every year till a few years ago, In 92 Mary Joe beat Steffi in 3 sets(7:6 in the third I believe). I never saw it but I read that time that it was a great match.

mariaan de swart beat Steffi in Brighton 95 6:2 4:6 6:1

and I for sure remember how Amanda beat Steffi 3 times in 97 she just let Steffi made the errors and they came like never before(well except for Paris 91). I think it`s the only time Steffi laughed because she played so bad(Berlin) but of course afterall there was nothing funny about it since Steffi should never have played Berlin, Strassbourg(wich she won) or Paris because by doing that she made her injury worse and so she missed 9 months after, and of course in Australia she should not have played either because she had fever and got a heatstroke <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> stupid docters <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

I don`t know what happened in Canada 95 only that it was not unexpected after what happened the weeks before

Even Amanda said that she was lucky to often meet Steffi at the right time

steffi has lost to 56 players in total if I counted right (including qualifications in 83), of course exhibitions and walkovers don't count (walkovers I mean not when she retired during the match like in her last one)

that was at the us open qualifing. steffi reached the second round of the french open in 83 (isn't that funny that miss I suck on clay couldn't reach the maindraw at wimbledon and the us open and still won a match in the maindraw at the french open when she was still 13;))

I think steffi winning a match at 13 at the french open is still a record too
can't see any player who beat that (and yeah I realize most didn't play at 13 either. I think only mary joe did)

Monica only played in spring 98 because that was her fathers biggest wish. That's why she even played in Rome a week before he died. And second seeing somebody dying and having a lot of pain is maybe even worse then when it's actual over (well I can imagine that. I have no personal experience)

Steffi was not in her prime in summer 98 either. Even when people want to believe that :eek:

but of course Anna's wins are legit. Monica and Steffi both showed up. Anna still had to play great tennis to beat 91 ranked Steffi. She had not beaten Steffi with the level she showed in their next match at the french;)
