Evert winning their last meeting 60 60 in 1982 is so ironic. I know that Austin was not the same as before due to injuries but how could Austin not even win one game ?
It was great or awful-depending on who you were or root for!
This was the worst loss of Austin's career. Even as a 14 year old no one double bagled her.
Some stats (from a New York Times article by Neil Amdur)
Match time: 48 minutes
Points won by Austin: 14 (5 in first set and 9 in second set)
The god smacking reversed their last meeting a year earlier at the same event, when Tracy thrashed Chris 6-1 6-2.
Chris: "I was surprised she wasn't tougher. The difference from last year is she's tentative with a lot of shots. She used to crunch her ground strokes. I think I'm moving a lot better than I have before. For once, I'm moving better than she is. She's lost a bit of confidence. She's not cracking the ball."
Austin: "I'm in good enough shape to play anyone else, but no one keeps the ball in play as much as Chris does. I've noticef she's getting so intense this year, and she's worked hard, practiced so hard. She's just exactly the way I am. The more you practice, the more confident you get."
This was their last career meeting. At the time Austin effectively left the game in 1983 she was the only player to have a winning head to head vs Chris Evert.
