As a baseliner I don't have much trouble with other junk ball type players.... so I can see why Evert dominated her. And I see a lot of S&V players struggling more against junk ball types.

Mind you, I would love to watch every Durr match no matter who she played so I am easily pleased in that regard. Pity there isn't any footage around of Lehane though. I would have liked to have seen some of her in action.
Funny I am a baseliner but in my Scottish league matches I thrive more against a target at the net- but I understand what you mean. It seems so odd that a woman who reached so many GS finals in Australia should have no footage. There must be somewhere. Hope you find some- but not the 67 matches when she beat Durr maybe!!!
