I agree. Her court craft was exemplary. There have been been few to match her in this area. What I find particularly admirable is that she rarely seemed hurried. And yes Hingis was possibly the last of the top ranked players to use all the court. Personally I find most women's matches a slug fest bore, although the Italians can be a joy to watch, they normally get steamrollered at some point in a tournament. That said, I do like bartoli as she's such an original.
Shes the most competitive athlete Ive ever played against, without any question.-BJK on Evert, 1987
