Made for interesting reading. Thanks
Kinda sorta I guess. Martina did not get her first of three wins on clay until '84 at her absolute peak of dominance. It was the only year she had a winning record on clay vs Chris winning two of two meetings . Evert got her last of 5 victories on grass in '82 before Martina got so devastating. The peculiarity was that while the disparity between the two was greatest on clay of all four surfaces, each of the three times Martina did win, it was a route.
