She is prone to injuries because of her body type- long limbed and relatively thin at the wrists, knees, and ankles/feet. What complicates this most for her is that she really doesn't play percentage tennis- she generally does a great deal of running with long, huge steps just after her opponent has already hit the ball, and is quite often wrong-footed, especially on clay, which requires her to start and stop more frequently because the opponent has more time to play percentage tennis against her on clay than on any other surface. It's something she'll just have to live with if she stays on the baseline, however, I do think if she develops a serve-and-volley game, she could substantially cut down on her injuries, and be an even better player!
There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.
