btw Hingis and Graf are playing an exo in Taipei in May. Back in the day Cheeky Hingis was one of the very few players Graf really disliked. Are the cool with each other now? Hingis will be looking to get back at Graf over that 99 RG fiasco that she still can't get over even today, though I maintain it was the 2 AO's that she lost against Capriati that were worse.
Hingis and Graf did not like each other. Steffi looked like she wanted to rip Hingis's head off during that French Open final. Their 'handshake' after the match was very frosty, they just kind of bumped fingertips in an awkward way.
