i hope there's no deranged fan out there that suddenly stabs rafa in the back...
Good post mate
Well the Graf vs Seles & Fed vs Rafa~ rivalries are probably as similiar as they can be, considering we`re comparing apples & oranges
ie.Men & Women aren`t exactly the same species on a tennis court
.Oops I`ll be accused of sexism
*Also the division among fans is intriguing, so many people think you have to be either a Fed fan or a Rafa fan, as if they were mutually exclusive
. Why can`t we be fans of both of them & appreciate that a duopoly is better than a monopoly~ so they need each other
.The Seles stabbing was such a tragedy because it changed the course of women`s tennis, we`ll never know what Monica could have achieved if it hadn`t happened, so Graf`s record number of Slams unfortunately has an asterix next to it*.
Let`s hope Fed & Rafa keep doing what there doing
& nothing tarnishes their rivalry in the way the Graf v Seles rivalry was
