Richey is a tough customer vs s/ver's on any court. She faced the toughest in a grass court era. what makes this a tough call, is that neither of these is quick on the mark and that is where the Graf analogy fails here. Graf could reach any volley in any corner of the court. Richey certainly won't, but then Shriver won't be running down those forehands all that well either.. Richey wins all the clay. Shriver wins most of grass meetings. On the other two surfaces, I'll give slightest edge to Richey because she is so mentally tough. Shriver's going to make life unpleasant on carpet with awkward underspins and Richey will return the favor on a higher bouncing hard court.
