dream match 2008

by

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!

    Great to see them playing again!

    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.

    Does anyone know where to find a copy DVD of this exhibition match ?

  4. SD Says:

    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.
