Re: barker vs evert and austin question....
I know Baltacha beat Schiavone but Bally isnt really in the same class as Barker. Bally talks a good game but she doesnt execute. She is a good top 65 player but hasnt got the weapons to get beyond second rounds in GS. Barker had weapons. We havent had a GB player for so long to get into 3rd and 4th Rounds at GS tournaments. This may well change with Watson and Robson (who has just beaten two good players to reach the 1st round in China).
I 100% agree with you - hence the 'but I know what you're getting at'.
Baltacha is the best British No 1 we've had since Sarah Gomer
