Sorry if this has already been asked, but I'd like to know when Zvereva asked to be named Natasha instead of Natalia, I really don't remember this.
Secondly, there was a kind of funny incident during her semifinal match against Sabatini at the 1995 Year End Championships in NYC ... when Zvereva won the match and went to shake the hand of the chair umpire, this one wasn't in his chair anymore and Zvereva stayed for a moment in front of the chair wondering where he was, but he disapeared. Who knows what has happened during this match to drive the umpire to such a strange behavior?
Thanks you :wavey:

Definitly! Thanks so much. :)
Did the chair umpire Mike Morrissey has been suspended after that? I never saw a chair umpire leaving his chair before the match is clearly over and not shaking hands of the players.
That's incredible. I need to watch again the video.
