It was a slugfest and a huge battle of willpower. Against anyone else on the tour Monica would have ended the match much sooner, Grafs sheer heart and determination made it a dogfight of a match all the way through the 3rd set. Graf made Monica earn that title she kept coming and would not stop...Monica kept her cool despite blowing chances to finish Graf off earlier. Maybe not the highest tennis quality but it was a match of emotions and will power to win.
