Just need to remmember her matches with Conchita at Roland Garros 97 or Usopen 1998 to get an idea of how boring of a player she was.
That match was so awful I still remember it, US Open 1998.
I was cleaning my room and it was a windy day in NYC.
Wind and the games of Conchita and Amanda just don't mix.
So I had finished cleaning my room which took a few hours and the match was still on and going at snail's pace.
Neither player wanted to attack.
Both players acted as if the net was fashioned of a toxic poision.
So it was the attack of the moonballs with wind.
The balls took forever to come down.
I started wondering if somehow Amanda and Martinez had found the only blue colored clay court in NYC and were playing their US Open match on that.
It was the first and only time I begged Mary Carillo to talk as much as possible and she did.
Her comments about being surprised it didn't rain after all these balls going in the upper atmosphere were hilarious.
The balls were going so high some left the view of the backcourt camera.
It was the only time I considered that the winner of the match beat their opponent by boring them to death.
It was the worse conditions and matchup.
Coezter can be quite entertaining.
Martinez though can be quite depressing when she's losing and she has a tendency to stretch out that depression in a match forever.
The finals of Roland Garros in 2000 was just so weird.
I just felt bad for Mary because it was like Martinez leeched some of her happiness from winning on that court that day.
