    I found this on youtube. It's Court and Goolagong Australian Open final 1971. The women sure don't play like this anymore. It was fascinating to watch though. I'd be interested in seeing the whole match. Court won 2-6, 7-6, 7-5.

    Interesting

    Wow, pretty much every point they are trying to come to the net. Slice BH, continental FHs with no power. I guess their game is prettier than the baseline bashing that goes on in the WTA today.
