Five years after her retirement, former world No. 1 Steffi Graf returned to the court Saturday and showed off the stroke that once dominated tennis. Graf, who earned the nickname ``Fraulein Forehand'' in winning 22 grand slam titles, pounded old rival Gabriela Sabatini 6-1, 7-5 with her favorite weapon in a benefit match for her organization, Children for Tomorrow.
