When exactly do you think she became slower compared to 1989?Even in her one sided loss to Graf at Wimbledon as a 15 year old in 1989, Seles showed glimpses of the same plays that would hurt Graf as she (Seles) grew stronger and Graf got a tad older and slower. In 1989, Graf could sprint all the way from the backhand corner to cover an attack into her forehand corner and hit a winner! She was truly an incredible athlete THEN. She found it harder and harder to sustain that level of athleticism getting deeper into the 90s, which is to be expected. However she also - as of '93 AO - had not made any significant adjustments to account for this (and arguably never truly did apart from improving her serve) while Seles was growing and growing as a player. Been said a million times before, but the rivalry was at a tantalizing juncture just when Seles got stabbed. That is NOT to take anything away from Graf. It's just what it is, it happened and people simply have to deal with it because it's not something that happened to any other player, not on the tennis court.
