I had alreay heard about this 88 hamburg tournament and the refund incident, but not in details (so THANK YOU).
Still thought they wanted refund because the match was too quick
But actually no, how coherent are they ? 1st day they complain because they want to see a match no execution, and then the next day they complain because there is no execution
Strange, strange, never really saw a lot of Steffi's matches at Hamburg (appart that wonderfull 91final and 92 one vs Sanchez I think), but quite all her matches at Berlin (love this tournament !), the crowd seemed to have something against her, or is it me ?
And what happened in 1987 (She's speaking about the year before in your article) ?
