On September 6, 1991, at the US Tennis Center in Queens, the Women’s Singles semifinals of the US Open provided what some consider the single greatest day in the history of women’s tennis. First, 34-year old Martina Navratilova defeated the aging process and Steffi Graf with a 7-6, 6-7, 6-4 win. Then, at half Navratilova’s age, 17-year old Monica Seles won a spectacular 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 victory over the even younger 15-year old Jennifer Capriati in a match that ushered in a new era to women’s athletics. Seles would go on to win the championship against Navratilova two days later.
