Doordarshan and Frustration !!!
Today is Steffi Graf's birthday. On 6/6/92, Steffi was engaged in a titanic battle with Monica Seles in the French Open final. It was their third clash at Roland Garros. Fraulein Forehand had won their '89 semifinal in 3 sets while Seles won the '90 final in straights. Losing the first set 2-6, she won the second 6-3 and the decider was a nail-biter. All through the 3rd set, the old dinosaur Doordarshan would break midway due to 'satellite link failure'. The final blow was at 8-8 when DD conked out for 15 minutes and then took us straight to the prize distribution after Seles had won 10-8! Losers!
Anyway, enjoy this clip from that game. Another video
claims to be from the '92 final but I cross-checked with Monica's site
and it's actually from 1990. This photo
proves we got the right clip.
