Re: Rosebud - Rosie Casals
Casals played in an era of Court, King, Evert, Navratilova, Goolagong and behind them Jones, Wade, Richey, and then behind them other similarily dangerous players to herself like Stove, Barker, Turnbull, Morozova, Melville. She was good but in that era it would be pretty much impossible to see her winning a slam. Her best opportunity was probably the 70 or 71 U.S Open since there was less depth briefly then, and she only needed one really big win, the finals each time. She folded in the 3rd set in 1970 with a bunch of stupid errors even though Court was clearly nervous about the prospect of the Grand Slam and not at her domineering best, and in 1971 she should have won the 2nd set anyway.
