1978 world invitational classic on green clay.
Played in '77, just for the record.
New York Times:
Also, ABC has Goolagong leading the rivalry 22-7, coming into the match, though the Times has 15-7.
I was impressed with Wade groundies in these clips. I had no idea she could sustain rallies fromt he back and put that kind of power on her shots.
I like the physical effort she seems to be putting into her shots -- quite different from (not better than) Evonne's apparently effortless style.
So this was the third straight year they met at Hilton Head. I hope TC airs the match from '75 that ended in a third-set tiebreak. I have the best point at the start of this clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1x2hsNfFQs.
At the WTA site, Goolagong is leading 23-8 coming into this match: http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/headtohead/virginia-wade_2255881_8881/0,,12781~8881~2794,00.html.
one hell of a point that. That must be the point to which Pancho refered in the 78 final as one of the best he ever saw!
Ah, that must be it -- if there had ever been a '78 final.
Classy ladies, a rarity these days.
