Re: Rosebud - Rosie Casals
Very interesting article. I never saw Rosie play singles - just doubles late in her career. Sounds like she had the same problem Mandlikova had - too many options of what to do with the ball.
That, and it was common knowledge on the tour that she was infinitely lobbable. I also think her close relationship to the, shall we say, sometimes overbearing Billie Jean King actually hurt her development process.
There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.
