Re: Fed (Federation) Cup Trophy Pictures - 11 Left!

The lack of 1982, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1989 and 1990 bug me because the ones before and after them are found. So surely if the ones before them are found then we should be able to find something from these years, right?
There's a black-and-white photo of the 1982 US team (Martina Navratilova, Chris Evert, Andrea Leand, and Peter Marmureanu) posing with the Federation Cup in the 1983 edition of the ITF World of Tennis annual. If no one else posts that photo, I'll try to scan it sometime next week and post it in this thread.

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)
