dream match 2008

Tennis greats Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graf, and Kimiko Date came together for the “Dream Match 2008” exhibition at Tokyo’s Ariake Stadium on Saturday, March 15.

Kimiko Date - Steffi Graf - Dream Match 2008

Steffi lost to Date 6-2, 6-3. FYI: In 1996, Date beat Steffi for the first time (at a Fed Cup), and pushed her during a 2-day Wimbledon semi (that’s the match where Steffi got a wedding proposal).

Steffi wore all-white adidas during her match against Martina. Steffi won in a tiebreak. I miss that eastern forehand!

    I’m chomping at the bit for a Graf-Seles exo. Please, tennis powers-that-be, make it happen. That could be on par with the Fed-Pete rumbles.

    What a great event. Wish I was there. Would be great to see Graf, Seles, Evert, Navratilova, Hingis, etc. play regular matches – form a “seniors” league. It would be great. I am sure it would be a success. I would love to watch them all play again.
