Yes I saw her a few times and her shot selection and touch were both great. I saw her lose to Anne Hobbs in 86 at Eastbourne and her game did fall apart a little towards the end. Full marks to Hobbs though. A real fighter at her best. Saw Bunge many times on television and the last time I think was one year at Brighton when she lost-86?_to Lindqvist.
