Maybe Mac would be the player she could be somehow compared to.

It is curious how the big four of the Golden Era came almost in paralel trends: Borg and Navratilova leaving their countries as both adopted another citizenship, Connors and Evert, probably America´s Most Popular couple for years, Austin and JMac, the young prodigies and, finally, Lendl and Hana, the european prodigies with a very polemic personality.Those characters helped put tennis to its historical peak.
