I cant help but laugh (and feel sorry) for Rene Simpson who was double-bageled twice in one year - gosh...
Tennisfan, there is a link to your post in John Wertheim's Tennis Mailbag on CNN SI! Second time I've seen the mailbag provide a link to this thread. Cool! (And yes, Rene Simpson must have felt horrible having to face Steffi twice that year and not winning a single game in 4 sets!

ETA: here's the link (look for the line in page 2 of the article that says "In praise of Steffi Graf, who won the Grand Slam 25 years ago.") http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/ten...?sct=tn_t11_a4
