Re: The Italian Open Championships

Thanks Ugarte!

I added in your scores and the fact that the meana and women are playing a combined event here for the 1st time since 1978.

1978, the year I was born! How nice of you to include it in your posts, Rollo!

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

Re: The Italian Open Championships

Added youtube links for 1987, 1991, and 1992 featuring Navratilova, Sabatini, and Seles.

And links for 1989 (Sabatini vs Sanchez) and a brief clip of 1983!

Jimbo found a great link to Italian results. I'll be gradually adding those in.

Re: The Italian Open Championships

Added results for 1962 and a ton of images I found-even one of Mo Connolly winning in 1954! My favorites though are of the dynamic duo of Pericoli and Lazzarino, the twin terrors of the Foro.
