Gabriela Sabatini did it quite a bit.

Commentators often called it the 'Sabatweenie"

Because they never chase balls to the back. Everytime I see one of them get lobbed they just watch and hope it lands out, rofl.

Good point. It requires exquisite speed, and not many women are capable of that.

Because there aren't ball artists like Sabatini anymore.

hingis came to the net a lot (often after she played a dropshot and followed it in) and i saw a lot of players lob over her and she would run back and NEVER play the between the legs shot ever
