1 W Nicole Bradtke 6-1 6-0
2 W Maria-Francesca Bentivoglio 6-0 6-1
3 W Lori McNeil 6-0 6-0
4 W Amanda Coetzer 6-1 6-1
QF W Petra Schwarz-Ritter 6-0 6-2
SF W Steffi Graf 6-2 6-2
F L Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario 6-4 6-4

Being so dominant en route to the final and end up losing it must be a record as well. lol

Even as someone who isn't a particularly big fan of her, that final hurts :sobbing::lol:

Arantxa was lucky it rained during that final and the clay was incredibly slow :oh:

I'm so impressed the way she gave those beatdowns on clay. She must have been in really great form. It's understandable when someone did in on grass but on clay? Such amazing results. :hearts:

ASV :rolleyes:

I remember the French press calling her victories "à la Lenglen", another queen of bagels and breadsticks... :hearts:

But that final loss was coitus interruptus... Even more losing to ASV. :sobbing: She was destined to "balayer" her off the court and then... :weirdo:

That final :hysteric:.

Such dominance :rocker2: consistent beat downs like that are just phenomenal, especially on clay. Shame the final never really happened...

Poor Pierce, she should have erased Sanchez-Vicario from the face of the planet :facepalm: Thank God she won it in the end

Fortunately, Pierce revenged that loss by annihilating ASV in the AO final one year later.
