well, dont feel bad about your first impression--the first time i saw it i was not sure how great it was or not either, just that i was glad to see it. But with review, i too am amazed at how dynamic that baseline play was, and as one person in the match-memories area of the evert.net site described the match as 'godzilla looking over which part of the city it wanted to destroy next' or something along those lines.
i have also seen this regarding tracy's jerky motion and how it may have effected her longtime through injury. someone said to me last week, 'chris was so calm under pressure but do you think she was as calm as tracy?' and i said, 'calm is not what won tracy her matches. she constantly blows into her hand and is totally hyped up; more like an evert on some very strong stimulant.' and her strokes had that hyper-tension feel to them. chris was always very fluid in comparison. she also atributes that to her own longevity; not as much a matter of equipment etc., but of good footwork and always being prepared to hit a shot evenly and in step; it took less of a tol on the body. But no one ever backed me up on tracy's strange tight contortions theory as contributing to her injuries...to me, watching her, it LOOKS like she's going to have a nervous system issue!
thanks for just writing me a note on the evert thread, by the way, knowing i would zone in on it by nature without needing to be notified. hahaha...
hey, was that evert fan, by any chance, a certain very handsome fellow with a smooth accent?
