Her psychology was the worst of any Brit I saw including Annabel Croft
And yet she had so much talent and potential. She was 6'2" and a left-hander with a good serve. She had some good wins in her career (McNeil; Zvereva; Sanchez-Vicario; Manuela Maleeva; Linqvist etc) but she had her share of injury, and didn't have the killer instinct-just too damn nice!!
