Yes, it's always refreshing when a very large person opens her mouth and subsequently becomes a very small person. Pam was here a couple of years ago for a Tennis Legends exhibition, and the other woman in the mixed doubles format just happened to be Virigina Wade. I overheard Pam at the reception afterward mention that she had to "play down" to Viriginia the whole match long, which I thought was very rude, and downright disrespectful!
There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.
