    Yes I do. I think she still lost the point though.

    No, she did win the point. That shot was the end of the rally. The crowd is cheering because the shot was good.

    Correct.

    But she still loses at life, since she looks like a gremlin.

    I remember watching this live and at that time, and still now, don't understand why she hit the ball between her legs-that ball looked very gettable by conventional means-unless she figured she already lost the point and just hot-dogged it (and got lucky).

    i think she overan it.

    at least it didn't end up like roddick's attempt... although if she'd done it, it would have been less painful.

    Todd Reid tried to do a through the legs shot at the AO one year. Commentators slammed him so much.

    It's obvious she overran it.

    Lendl's behind-the-back winner against Edberg was even more amazing. And then, even more ridiculously, Edberg pulls one against Lendl later in that same match.
