Yup Yup (along with Martina and Chrissie bridging in with Monica and Steffi)! You can also throw in Billie Jean King, with the Bobby Riggs match, after he beat Margaret Court (I think it was). Yeah, those were the days for the women. I hope they come back (and they will).

So many people conveniently forget or don't realize this.
