Hello Brazilian Friend
Always nice to see another Bueno fan. She was one of my faves - I mean I was too young to see her live but I mean on video. Such a graceful beauty, with shots like razor sharp arrows!
Do you have her interview on video or do you remember it? I would love to know what her thoughts were on the difference between the past and present and also her thoughts on her peers - Gibson, Court & King etc.
I was so lucky to see her playing in the veterans at Wimbledon once and then she very kindly had a photo taken with me. Talk about a moment in heaven for me!
Anyway, she still had her beautiful shots but she would have just been a faint shadow of her former dazzling self.
