Rollo, would you like me to stick this thread, to avoid having to bump it ad nauseum? And likewise with the Olympics?

Rollo, some stats of the Avon Championships in March 1981 (New York):

Bunge and Hanika played a match for the third place. Bunge won 5:7,6:4,3:2ret.

Hanika maintained having had stomach pains, but at that point of the match the withdrawel came very surpringly to anyone (including Bunge).

Also, there was a Jaeger/Hanika dispute. Some of their comments:
Hanika: "Andrea plays unbelievably boring and is also not very nice". Jaeger: "She once hit a smash in my direction on purpose and several times she insulted me with German invectives that I understand but don't won't to repeat." Hanika: "I apologised for that smash. Andrea is not very nice on the court, she behaves like a super-star and tries to manipulate the linesmen."

King about Bunge "She is the most talented of all the upcoming players, she'll bring it far".

Navratilova was the oldest player of the tournament at age 24, Jaeger was the youngest (15). She still has the record of the youngest finalist at the championships ever.

Re: Tour Ending Finales

A suggestion, is it not possible to list the Round Robin matches in a cronological order as the matches were played? I remember Henin-Momo in 2005 was a great last match which decided the final standing in the group.
That would be much better as we know that the results of the group affected the willing to win by many players eg. Petrova trashing Sharapova 6-1 6-2, etc...

It's a great idea Tommystar-if anyone posts or PMS me the results in the order they happened I will edit them in.

Re: Tour Ending Finales

November 13-19, 1989
Virginia Slims Championships
New York, New York, USA (Indoor Carpet)
Notes:
A record 5 women of Czech origin entered: Kelesi, Mandlikova, Novotna, Navratilova, and Sukova.

Excuse me, but I always thought Helen Kelesi was of Canadian heritage?

Hi Josus Kelesi was Canadian, but her parents were Czech. They emigrated to Canada the year before she was born.

Re: Tour Ending Finales

Is there a list anywhere on this forum that shows all the winners of the 3rd place play offs? I was just wondering as it seems that some years had a third place play off and others didn't and I just wondered whether there was a list available that showed them clearly? Sorry if that's confusing!
