She huffed and puffed all right-but on this day Evert wolf couldn't blow Martini's house down
According to Martina there was nothing intentional about that beautiful touch volley on match point . LOL, her hands were shaking from nerves

Great pics Wimbledon-thanks for sharing

To me this photo is my favorite. The color of her sweater compliments everything else. I prefer the straight haired look.

Ah-the big hair of the 1980s. Hairspray companies must miss the "glory days."

Happy Birthday, Martina - and a big "hi" to fellow blasters!

Happy birthday to Martina, love and happiness to her and her family.

Puma was her sponsor with the nice sweater from 1984, one of the few companies who dared to sponsor Martina during her career only European and Japanese sponsors.
