Re: Federation Cup 1986
on a side note, i don't know if graf could have "by now handled both evert and navratilova on clay" handled implies that graf could do away with both chris and martina without any trouble?... yes, graf had her 1st victory over evert that year 1986 and would never lose to evert again as it turns out, but that win that 1st win was yes on clay, but the faster green har-tru clay of the family circle cup..
i would still bet my money on evert at her very best on slow red clay in 1986 against graf, but then again NOT at this federation cup in 1986 because evert with a bad knee that she had to actually wear a brace on and off in her matches should NOT have even played and was in no condition to play but did it as a favor to martina...
you would think graf would have the clear edge over martina on slow red clay in 1986 but you never know, i mean graf DID LOSE on a big occasion that year on slow red clay to mandlikova at the french, so playing in prague and the crowd pulling for martina of course, anything could have happened and martina did play very very well throughout her matches.
