You said quote

'......Graf by far had tougher competition'

so now you're changing your point and talking about achievement levels instead.

See the bit I bolded. If Graf dominated more than Federer then Graf's opponents were less competitive against her.

You make a point, without thinking it through for accuracy, get called on it then back track and say something else.

Thanks.
