    Slowly tennis transformed so much into power tennis

    Len Welch says:

    From 17:00 on shows what separated Chris mentally as a great champion. Martina’s “ everyone is against me Serena attitude shows up “ and Chris has to deal with Martina complaining about a call that was called out for Chris then corrected to play a let , then Martina hits a net dribbler on set point for Chris , but Chris calmly played through with positive tennis , then at deuce hits a difficult backhand up the line winner then plays a long difficult winner to win the set point. Most players would’ve gotten discouraged but not Chris. She didn’t let Martina’s whining about a possible double bounce in a point Martina won on set point for Chris. The champion attitude in Chris negotiated through that tough game mentally with positive tennis. Chris played this match with same attitude in her win 82 A final her last win for 2 years until Jan 85 as Chris met the physical challenge of becoming a better athlete pushed by Martina’s push to become one of the most athletic tennis players of all time. court was the first then Martina and it took the athleticism of Graf to topple an aging Martina. Chris hung in there to win 3 slam matches against Martina at Navratilova best 85 F 86F and 88 A .

    Len Welch says:

    What helped Chris here is that the last time they played ( Open 1981 ) Martina won 6-4 in third after Chris was up 4-2, 4-4 with two ad points on Martina’s serve and still lost. Chris seldom lost twice in a row to a player and at this time believed a win was due to her . Here Chris plays at a pace between points as if she’s getting on with it. When she had doubts while playing Martina she is much slower between the points. The usual uptight ness while playing Martina is absent here . What is odd is that this win on grass was her second consecutive win on grass since 80 W sf . She would have only one more win on grass against Martina in 82 A final. ( final 6 grass matches all went to Martina -5 of 6 went 3 sets. )

    Marina could be such a baby sometimes. She looks great here, though! Thanks Brad, for the new clips, its been awhile! Makes me wonder what other treasures you have🤔🤔🤔

    Joe Momma says:

    The chair umpire really doesn't need to repeat EVERY line call or announce a double fault. Really.
