I think, though, that Graf hit a lot of forcing shots that were not clean winners. And in the boxscore she's got a very large windfall of winners beyond the clean winners/aces you gave her: 16 altogether. Hingis has only 1 extra winner.
Some of that could be judgment calls made on Graf's serves (service winners), but on clay Graf always forced errors mostly with her forehand.
