While roaming YouTube I found a little tennis gem.
In January 1999 two generations of tennis awesomeness clashed in Hong Kong’s Super-Power Challenge Cup (hilarious name for an exhibition but fitting, I think). Watch 17-year old Serena Williams taking on 29-year old Steffi Graf in the semifinal.
Steffi would go on to play sister Venus Williams in the final of this exhibition tournament but had to retire with a stomach flu.
Fun fact: Adidas seemed to have not changed their clothing boredom policy since the 90s. Steffi would wear this exact same dress at the French Open six months later where she won the last of her twenty-one Grand Slam titles.
Go to 3:40 to watch the most entertaining point of the match. Watching the whole match is worth it, too, for the drama that will unfold!
