As to Hingis, her stats in this match surprised me. Maybe she had more power off the ground than she is given credit for(or maybe Graf's power is a bit overrated, esp in the context of the late 90s generation)
I don't think her power is overrated, have many of her tapes and have all of the rackets she played with and to produce those serves and forehands in the 88/93 period with the Dunlop Max 200G is amazing. That was such a non-flexible racket. Her power is a different one than the power generated through the rackets.
One thing they ([B]Roger Federer & Steffi Graf[/B]) have in common: they scare(d) the crap out of their opponents when at the top. that's the kind of weapon you can't teach at the local club. and they use(d) it to perfection.
