    What was the last Slam Finals Steffi & Monica played?
    Who won?
    And what unusual event was occurring during the ceremonies?

    Ok this would probably have to be answered by someone who was actually there, like myself. During the Trophy Ceremony ,, out of nowhere came this rain storm. It literally got pitch dark within minutes while the trophies were being presented to Steffi & Monica, as they were standing there, all this rain was blowing in their faces and Monica thought it was hillarious to the point where she couldn't even talk because she was laughing so hard.

    I had a front row box seat and I yelled something admirable to Steffi .. that caused her to turn to me after the presentation and she gave me a wink which I wish I could have sealed and framed but it's but a memory that will stay with me forever.

    There's something special about Steffi & Monica .. for me. When Steffi won her title in New Haven, I was able to get into the Player's Tent and got a signed tennis ball from her and a huge thank you for supporting me. There were tons of people around her so I wasn't able to talk to her at all but I still have that ball.

    Then a few years later, Monica played New Haven against Venus Williams and I again had a front row box seat and vocally supported Monica. When she was allowed to hit some balls into the crowd, she actually hit one straight to me and I gave her a thumbs up. I still have that ball as well. Those are the only two signed tennis balls I have. One from Steffi and one from Monica which friends tell me to sell on **** but I just can't get myself to part with them.
