4 W Amanda Coetzer 6-1 6-1
QF W Petra Schwarz-Ritter 6-0 6-2
SF W Steffi Graf 6-2 6-2
F L Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario 6-4 6-4
I remember the French press calling her victories "à la Lenglen", another queen of bagels and breadsticks...
But that final loss was coitus interruptus... Even more losing to ASV. She was destined to "balayer" her off the court and then...

Poor Pierce, she should have erased Sanchez-Vicario from the face of the planet Thank God she won it in the end
The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
