That's the first US Open I can remember.
15 years ago.
Great tournament. The 2nd German double in a row. Steffi
Some interesting scores:
Graf def. Inoue 6-3 6-1
(almost scandalous that Steffi lost 3
games in the first set
White def. Frazier 6-2 6-1
Martinez ef. Birch 6-3 6-2
Cueto def. Raymond 6-4 7-5 (those three are still playing)
Neiland def. Shriver 6-2 6-3
White-Prausa def. MJ Fernandez 6-4 6-3
M. Maleeva-Fragniere def. Cueto 5-7 6-3 5-3 ret.
(Isabel Cueto had a bad injury (or cramps?) in the 3rd set. She went down on the court and couldn't get up again, but I think no one helped her, and the umpire kept giving her code violations
Sabatini def. Martinez 6-1 6-1
Evert def. Seles 6-0 6-2
Graf def. Sukova 6-1 6-1 (Steffi lost only 14 games en route to the SF
Sabatini def. Sanchez-Vicario 3-6 6-4 6-1
Garrison def. Evert 7-6 6-2 (Chris' last tour match, but it was Zina who cried after the match because she was the one who put Chris into retirement
Navratilova def. Manuela-Fragniere 6-0 6-0
(funny because they played again in 1990, and Manuela won
Graf def. Sabatini 3-6 6-4 6-2 (Steffi was down 3-6 0-3 I think but came back. In the 3rd set she had severe cramps so that she couldn't even sit down at changeovers.)
Navratilova def. Garrison 7-6 6-2
Graf def. Navratilova 3-6 7-5 6-1 (Steffi was again 3-6 2-4 down
On the men's side:
Boris Becker down 0-2 sets in the 2nd round against Rostagno. Saved 2 MP's, one of them with a net-cord. Beat Lendl in the final.
