Re: Margaret Court Picture Thread

It is funny how often we get back to talking about these classic Court v Evert matches of 1973!
Yes-and I'm loving it, as every match of theirs that I have (and I have 4 in all) is pure joy to watch.

I have not seen their US Open encounter, but what I would give for a box-set of these three GS matches from 1973!
Get it if you can. Mags won by staying back, rallying, and only coming in on her terms. Pure serve and volley worked well for Billie Jean vs Chris on grass, but for Court it just didn't work. Evert hit some of her most amazing lobs over Margaret in these encounters. And in a few points in that US Open match Chris made some spectacular gets at net too.
