The two greatest players, ever, in women's tennis. Seles, the first loud grunter, with her double handed forehand, Graf, with that graceful backhand and constant finesse. These two women were artists on the court. A great rivalry, unprecedented today.
Watching the Australian Open Women's final last night made me nostalgic. Women's tennis has been quite flat and inconsistent over the past six or seven years. So it was good to see a strong, close match.
Witness the fitness below, Graf VS Seles '93 Australian Open final, back when the court was green, not blue.
Also, one year, my family drove to Melbourne from Sydney, to watch the Open, and my sister caught Steffi Graf's towel when she threw it into the crowd.
