Re: R.I.P. Georgina Clark

As a chair umpire, Georgina was always one of my favorite supervisors to work for. She was extremely fair, backed up the chair umpires when they were correct, and very respectfully rescinded or overturned a ruling if they were incorrect. She was also a wonderful person and I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to get to know her.

Well, as much as I wanted Graf to win that final, I did always think Hingis was right and that the ball was in. It's crazy how much that final changed on that point but Hingis got too focused on one shot. She was a set and break up and then she mentally lost focus - and who worse to do that to, than Steffi?

Despite the fact she had a lot of experience in winning Slams by then, Hingis was still young. If she had been even 2 or 3 years older she might not have went so far to challenge that one shot - but then you remember Hingis was one of the oldest minds around even at 16/17. It's her "what could have been" moment. Graf took the advantage and won again and brilliantly. Nice to see though Georgina agrees that the ball was in. Hingis should have walked away.... but this one moment changed the whole match.

RIP Georgina
Thanks again spiceboy
I just think that it was an awful experience for a young player, even if she was number one in the world. The crowd so wanted Graf to win, as did I, but it led to a crowd that was almost baying for the blood of Hingis and couldnt wait for an excuse to have a go. Ironic that Hingis never reached the French Open final again.
