The post on Sabatini and Graff got me thinking about this. ***Not so much because of their style of play*** (Seles was not the great athlete that Nadal is) but because their emergence has put an asterisk in the accomplishments of who otherwise is considered to become the GOAT. Obviously Nadal is not done and Seles was stabbed but the parallels are there. Federer & Steffi- Athletic, artistic, dominating and intimidating near untouchable on extremely fast surfaces. Seles & Nadal - Dominating on slow surfaces, unrelenting, mentally strong, and not intimidated by the aforementioned. Medium surfaces are up for grabs but Nadal like Seles seems to be grabbing the majority of those. Whether Nadal can be take the #1 position from Federer seems unlikely at this point. But it will be interesting to watch. Also Seles's wins over Steffi gave the rest of the field hope. That has not happened yet in the men's field today. Interesting huh. P.S. Let’s not make this a Seles vs. Steffi debate. We have been down that endless road already.
