Resolved Question: Can someone answer this
I'm a big Steffi Graf fan, and I'm trying to get some details about Steffi's matches against Gabriela Sabatini and Jana Novotna?.
First off, what is Steffi's head to head record against Sabatini?. And what is Steffi's head to head against Jana?. A friend told me Jana beat Steffi more often than Sabatini did, is this true?.
Secondly, I'm too young to remember Steffi beating Sabatini in the '91 Wimbledon Final, and Steffi playing Jana in the '93 Wimbledon final. Can someone please tell me about those 2 matches?. Did Jana ever hold a match point at '93 Wimbledon, and how close was Sabatini to winning against Steffi at '91 Wimbledon?. Also, is it true Sabatini and Jana choked badly against Steffi in those Wimbledon Finals?.
Lastly, between Jana and Sabatini, who was a tougher opponent for Steffi, and why?.
I appreciate any information that someone can pass along to me!.
