How many times has a 19-year old who was winning every major in the game suffered a career-ending injury due to a horse riding accident?

How many times has a man who had won a CYGS (and 9 consecutive major tournaments) been denied the chance to play six years of his career due to a World War?

Again: either we re-write history for everybody (and assume what "would have" happened) or we do it for nobody.

We can't just rewrite history to discredit Graf because of the Seles incident.
