Hi Daze11!
I think you misread my post (GC = Grass court, not grand slam) The 75 US Open was on har-tru, not grass (and Evonne was up 75 44 in that match, btw). She also beat Chris indoors twice indoors in 76, which put an end to Chris' 8-match win streak against her. The margin between them was small at the point they met at Wimbledon.

I think people object to those thoughtless comments because they came long after the matches and make her sound a bit ungracious and a bad loser, which I don't believe she really was. During matches anything can happen and Chris' manners on-court have always been exemplary (unlike Martina's).
