I was watching a re-run of the USO 90 Final. And as part of her match tactics, Gabriela Sabatini, was standing inside the baseline to receive Steffi’s second serves. Up until then, I, had never saw any player do this during a match, well not until this final, am I wrong?

It was done by many players back in the serve and volley days-I've seen it done on tapes as far back as the 1960s. My guess is it's been a tactic as long as the game has been played.

Gaby's 1990 US Open win was sweet!:)
