Even back in 1998 she was having trouble with Schnyder before Schnyder fell off the map entirely in 1999 for a few years. She has also lost at Wimbledon to Dokic, Ruano Pascual and to Sugiyama, more tall huge power players for you. She has numerous losses to the power hitting Coetzer at 5"1. She has lost most of her matches on clay to Conchita "moonb.....errr I meant powerball" Martinez.
Martinez had very good forehand. Have you ever even seen her play? Btw, Martina was 11-3 vs Martinez and 10-2 vs Coetzer. Yeah, those players were really problematic to her.

For your dolly Polly sleep has flown
Don't dare let her tremble alone
For the witcher, heartless, cold
Paid in coin of gold
He comes he'll go leave naught behind
But heartache and woe
Deep, deep woe
