Re: barker vs evert and austin question....
I think that was the fashion in the 1980s. Do you remember Bonnie Gadusek - now that was a poodle perm! I always thought Chris looked ok because she was quite stoical on court and had a bit of a ruthless air about her!
I cant recall Sara Gomer doing anything significant - I think she may have reached Wimbeldon 3rd round once.
Barker's career was over really by the end of 1982.
