Yup and her 4 US championships were all in a row which is a difficult feat to achieve.

Her HoF page describes her as limited with her groundies but strong at the net with no stellar weapons. But to make 16 major finals something about her had to be stellar even when you factor in that many of the women back then get classified as out of shape or weak in one way or another.
