Default Graf v. Seles 1992 FO Final - on Tennis Channel right now.

Always fun to watch old matches. Just amazing how pinpoint accurate both players were and how consistent they were, and how they get better as the match gets tighter.

First thing that struck me was the sound of the highly strung gut vs. the sound of strings today. Steffi using her Dunlop here, before she switched to Wilson. And Monica is using her "regular" OS, not her comically large 135 sq inch version she used briefly after her comeback.

Monica wins this match 10-8 in the third. Of course, Graf has quite the revenge about a month later, thrashing Seles 6-2, 6-1 in the Wimbledon final.
