Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2
I got the chance to hit a few balls with Patty on the courts of Golden Gate Park in SF back in the 80s. She was hitting with her father, who had the call of nature, and I just lucked out to be on the next court practicing serves and asked if she would mind hitting a few with me, as it was obvious she was a great player. I didn't find out until afterward when a friend asked me if I knew who that was I just hit with.
There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.
