Re: Chris Evert Thread
yeah, margaret's forehead was very tough, strange though because when you actually watch it and pay attention her forehand production seems "OFF" to me.. i mean she swings away, but for instance, most of the time if not all the time, she looks like she was "off balance when she was hitting it, and it looked like a how should i say "violent" stroke production..while it was hard hit and powerful to me it's actually amazing, that it was as accurate as it was.. i can though see how someone who slowballed her and with tons of spin and if she got nervous and tight,or if someone could go toe to toe with her her forehand could fall apart.......
You also have to remember she was a natural leftie taught to play right handed. So none of her shots are elegant not does she have the touch that the other greats had playing with their natural hand/arm.
