All of the Seles-Graf threads inspired me to go watch clips on youtube. All I can say is that I LOVE watching these three play. Graf's slice backhand may be the most underrated shot in tennis history, overshadowed, of course, by her forehand. It wasn't a defensive or positoning backhand. She hit it hard and it was fast and low. Very agressive. I can't imagine tying to hit against that. She could pass with it also. Everyone asks why she didn't hit more topspin backhands, because her topspin was good. But, why hit topspin with that slice? Unprecedented (to this day) foot speed. She looks like a champion boxer. Perfect footwork. Also, he forehand looks awesome after all these years. Hard and relentless. I always thought it was a great unique shot becauase she used an eastern grip and caught the less out in front than a lot of players. Tough to read. There's much more, but I only have so much time. I loved Seles' relentlessness and hitting patterns. she kept the elbows close to her body and created obscene angles, sometimes when the ball was behind her. It's interesting to watch her hit line to line to line. Her serve is better than I remember. I loved it when she was in perfect position and just slapped at the ball like a slap shot in hockey. She really got down on the ball, bending her knees and lunging into the ball moving forward. This would be much more difficult for her to sustain today. I'm really impressed with all of these players with the trunk rotation into the shot. They didn't just arm it. Sabatini was so great to watch. She hit harder than I remember. Hard, topspin, and she mixed it up a lot. Her high backhand topspin with the wrist flick at the end was sublime. I know she was mentally weak at times, but her physical game impresses me more than I remember. Great mixure of high shots and low. Also, from watching these clips, I remember that I can't stand Aranxta SV. Also, Mary Pierce, when she was in the zone was so great to watch. A power player who didn't mess around, didn't pretend she had finesse. Also, love watching Kimiko Date.
