Great posts!
I read that match was a turning point for Martina. Her new partner/trainer/motivator Nancy Lieberman was already disgusted with Martina's rather casual approach to fitness and training upon getting together with her, even before that match. After that match she basically asked Martina how embarassing that was, whether she wanted to keep experiencing that when she played a player of Chris's caliber, and basically told her to get her butt in gear. Boy did she ever form that point on.
