Austin was a beast on court and at 100% would blow Martina and Evert off the court. Austin was actually tougher than Evert - it was her Sciatic Nerve injury that started to slow her down and really ended her career. Austin was a freaking kid when she started winning slams - can you imagine a 100% healthy Austin playing until she was 30+?????. As for Mandlikova she was a head case.....had ALL the shots, power, placement...etc etc etc but her brain was a wet noodle.....just like Henri Leconte on the mens side she had the most talent but at times could not put it together. It was like she had so many shots to choose from it would overwhelm her.
