Browsing through player profiles, I saw that Martina Navratilova won Wimbledon 5 straight times (1982-1987). Who did she lose to in 1988? ANd wow that was pretty dominating, I never knew she was THAT good at grass! :o ;) :p

there was an acticle like this that year in the Tennis Magazin.
Navratilova leads 7-5 2-0 against Graf in the Wimbledon final. And half an hour later the match is over,
the only strange thing is that Graf would be the winner.

I haven't seen that match, I only read that at 2-0 in the 2nd set Martina was so confident and started to serve to Steffi's forehand, with a couple of bomb-returns changed the whole match.
