    Does anyone remember Andrea, the Hungarian tennis player of the 1980's (I think)? If so do you remember what racquet she was using? My friend and I have a friendly wager on this and we're looking for the answer.

    I used to work at the US Open in the mid eighties and watch ALOT of Temesvari's matches. Big earrings...big makeup....big attitude...and big topspin groundies with an oversize Prince. Don't think it was a POG....could be a Precision I guess. She didn't win much on hard courts but she was fun to watch and always drew a crowd.

    I definitely saw her swinging a Prince Boron at one stage - not sure if that was her stick throughout her whole career though.

    I have her on tape playing Zina Garrison circa 1985. She's playing with a Prince Comp (the green racket that was 2nd in line after the original graphite--without the throat bar).

    Talk about digging back in the memory banks. Yes, Racketcollector is correct. It was the Prince Graphite Comp OS

    When she first came to public notice as a 15-year old, she played a Prince Woodie. During her best years, she played the Prince Comp OS, later known as the Graphite Comp and also available as a mid. It seemed like she disappeared overnight, but while she was good, I could swear she won the Italian Open and the US Clay Courts during the same year ('83 or '84).
