Steffi Graf never showed that. That is something I only I have seen once in the long career of Graf and that was in her final match at Wimbledon. That is the only time I saw Graf not really intense any more, which is strange if you watched her match with Venus in the quarters.

Roger and Steffi share a couple of mannerism. They way they look when they missed a shot,with the head up. Also the footwork, they are the only two players who remind me of dancers. Another similarity is that both have such a beautiful tennisbody. I don't know, maybe it's just me, but the Federer - Nadal matches always make me think of the Graf - Sabatini matches.
Didn't Federer break back when Nadal served for the match in that RG final 2006 ??? A strange way to give up IMO. It's hilarious how little confidence a lot of Federer fans have in their "hero".

So it's just a break. Roger can learn a lot of Steffi in the mental department. She lost to Sabatini 5 times in a row in the US, but never walked on the court with a beaten look. And after that Sabatini never beat her again. BTW Í am fan, he is not my hero, Graf is.

Steffi Graf and Roger Federer
The two greatest tennisplayers
