These were exceptionally rare days.
I would, but she did not really have many days when her 'game' was off in the first place, until 1986. Her losses or close matches had less to do with her screwing things up with lots of UE's or bad tactics, and more to do with her opponents like King Goologong, Austin, Navratilova or Jordan playing cleaner and bolder tennis than was their norm. The trouble did not come from her racket in the first place. Of course as I said she find ways of winning anyway because her game always got better in the second set. She doesn't fit this category well.
