Because of her largely absent topspin or flat backhand, Jana was too easily attackable. Which is why she had so little success against Martina who was well past her prime in the 90's.
You disgrace Steffi. ...
By telling the truth about Hana Mandlikova?
BTW, Mandlikova won 514 and lost 181 matches.
Novotna was 526-208.
Almost the same - but Jana didn't play in an era where Jaeger and Shriver types could get to #3 and #4 ....
