Hana's debut year as a pro, 1978, included several singles titles including one on clay (Barcelona). I'll go through her book to find out some other results from that year. The site also shows at least partial doubles results for Hana as well.

Hana managed to have a good year on the pro tour and also be declared World Jr. Champion in 1978. She won the Italian and French junior titles and was r/u to Austin at Wimbledon.

The Hana-Kerry semi is the match of the event. The atmosphere gets so emotional and heated that Kerry's husband Raz Reid "At one stage offered to fight three fans of Miss Mandlikova." Reid wins the final vs. Norton, but Hana is the name on everyon'e lips. Kerry's opinion the 16 year old: "She's the best young player in the world".

Hana's 1979 sent a clear signal that 1978 was no fluke. She reached her first grand slam QF in Paris and gave Billie Jean King a battle at Wimbledon, 6-4, 6-3.

Only 18, Hana's serve and volley style was coming together in 1980. No doubt a large part of that is owed to Betty Stove who agreed to coach her after Wimbledon. Betty would often stay in the background. But make no mistake about it, she's largely responsible for the progress that Hana made throughout her career. Hana trusted Betty and respected her even beyond her playing days.

She challenged Evert in a 3 set battle at the Italian Open and followed up her QF finish in 1979 at the French with a 3 set SF loss to eventual champion, Evert. She had Wimbledon champ Goolagong on the ropes, 7-6, 3-0 before losing in 3 on Center Court. And she defeated Navratilova on her way to the US Open final. One again, she lost in 3 sets to Chris. But she took home her first slam crown, the Australian Open, in a field that included both Navratilova and Goolagong. She defeated Turnbull in the final, 6-0, 7-5 and thus began a love affair with Australia.

Hana took up where she left off in late 1980. Having reached the final at the US Open, winning the Australian Open, gaining her first win over Martina, establishing a rivalry with Austin and Jaeger, and giving Evert and Goolagong fits, she would have much to do in order to top 1980.

In the spring and summer of 1981, she did just that. Hana won the French Open and reached the Wimbledon final...........standing a mere two matches away from a non-calendar slam.

She became only the second player ever (Margaret Court, 1973) to defeat Chris Evert, queen of clay, at Roland Garros. And she took out Sylvia Hanika to win the French crown. She reveals in her book that Phillipe Chatrier had a man detained for following Hana as she made her way up the stairs to the President's Box to receiver her trophy. Apparently he was an overzealous fan wishing to get as close to her as possible.

But the happenings in Paris weren't all good. During her run, she felt a twinge in her back. It was an injury that would get progressively worse and threaten her career. After Wimbledon, a doctor diagnosed the problem for her and told she wouldn't be able to play tennis for 2 years. Though she did play, reaching the finals of the US and Italian Opens in 1982 and leading Czechoslovakia to a Fed Cup trophy in 1983, she spent much of the next two years either resting her back or suffering upset losses.

She withdrew from Wimbledon in order to rest her back but re-entered the day of the deadline. She defeated Martina once again (Martina's last loss at Wimbledon until 1988) but lost to her nemesis, Evert, in the finals.

At the press conference following her loss, she was asked what "the Duchess" had told her after the match. Not realizing the reporter meant HRH the Duchess of Kent, Hana mistakenly thought he was referring to her coach, Betty Stove, who as a Dutch citizen was often called "Duchess."

Hana responded that she was told to go cross court and attack Evert's forehand next time. To which the room burst into laughter thinking about HRH dispensing advice to Hana on how to beat Evert.

At the end of 1981, Hana took several months off to rest her back. One doctor's opinion had been to rest it for 2 years. But another doctor prescribed some special excercies and therapy for her along with 3 months away from the courts. She did the excercies faithfully for the rest of her career and called them "McNabbies" after the Dr. McNabb that she trusted.

In the spring, she defeated Billie Jean King in the SF during a nice Italian Open run. But she lost 6-0, 6-2 to Evert. She continued her good form into Roland Garros where she scored her first pro win over Austin. She had lost the first 7 of their matches (6 in three sets). The three set battle might've taken something out of Hana though, because she suffered another 6-0, 6-2 loss in the SF. This time to Martina who was on her way to her first French title.

After a disappointing Wimbledon, Hana headed to the hardcourts where she pushed Martina at the summer Fed Cup event as well as at the Canadian Open. At the US Open, Hana scored a second straight 3 set win over defending champion Tracy Austin in the QF. This time, she followed that up with a 3 set win over Pam Shriver in the semis, winning 6-2 in the 3rd. However, once again, Chris Evert stood in the way. She defeated Hana in a final where Hana hit the ball well but was far too impatient.

Despite the injury and loss of confidence, Hana was still only 20 years old and the winner of two Grand Slams and r/u at 3 others.

Hana's 1983 would be disappointing. Her back injury caused her to miss so much practice and match time that she claimed in her book that she and Betty watched tapes of her just to help her body remember her previous serve and volley style of play. This had been curtailed somewhat in an effort to avoid stooping and stretching as much as possible.

Hana was a QF loser to Evert in Paris and New York. The French match with Chris was a close, hard fought 3 set match. Afterwards an exasperated Hana told the press that if she could play the way she normally does, she would have won "two and two." This would begin something of a feud between the two players that would last for a year and a half.

Perhaps frustrated with her injury and loss of confidence, a change to a graphite racquet, not to mention a ranking that would spiral down to #12, Hana sometimes came off as petulant and arrogant. But it was hard for her to accept going from being a Grand Slam champion to someone seeded to lose in the 4th round.

Ted Tinling said it was heartbreaking to watch Hana sink into such a deep, dark hole. But he also said that it was hard for some to feel sorry for her given the comments she sometimes made about the two players clearly better than her, Martina and Chris.

She also made her seeding at the US Open, losing to Evert in the QF. But struggled at both Wimbledon and the Australian for the second straight year. Surprising, given that grass best suited her style of play. But true to form for Hana who was always doing the opposite of what was expected of her.

She continued to play well against Martina, giving her several 3 set battles. But she didn't win any of them. Her one true bright spot was leading Czechoslovakia to a Fed Cup victory on slow, Swiss red clay, defeating the USA's Andrea Jaeger in the SF. It was only the second Fed Cup championship for her country.

1984 would be a return to prominence for Hana. By year's end, she would be back to #3 in the world. But it looked bleak for her at the end of 1983. Some people questioned whether or not Betty Stove had failed as her coach.....or worse yet, maybe Hana was simply uncoachable.

Betty and Hana's father decided that Hana needed to be on her own for a while. They felt that she was relying too much on Betty. To help her grow up on and off the court, they sent her out on her own to the States to begin what they all considered a critical year in Hana's career.

Though she didn't like it, it seemed to work like a charm. Hana won her first two tournaments, blowing apart the field at Washington D.C. and then reaching the final in Oakland. After defeating Jaeger and Shriver, Martina was waiting for her in the final. Hana had beaten Martina three times before and had taken her to 3 sets several times in 82 and 83. But she felt that she needed to win again. She defeated Martina 7-6 in the 3rd set to take the title. Martina wouldn't lose again until 74 matches later at the Australian Open.

In the early part of 1984, Hana accomplished two things: She won five spring tournaments and became the most consistent threat to Martina. She followed up her wins in D.C. and Oakland with tournament titles in Houston, Dallas, and Boston defeating M. Maleeva, K. Jordan, and Sukova in those finals.

She lost a close 3 set match to Martina on clay at Amelia after leading 4-2 in the 3rd. When NBC cut away from the match to show a baseball game, they were deluged with calls and mail saying that they had cut away from the best women's match they'd seen in years. Deciding that it didn't want to be faced with such a reaction again, NBC decided to no longer televise the Amelia Island event and concentrate on baseball that week instead.

Hana zipped through the field at the French and stood poised to defeat Martina again while leading by a set and 2-0. But Martina would stage a wonderful comeback displaying strength and athleticism perhaps never seen from her or any other woman before. After Martina's 6-2 3rd set win, Hana made a terrible mistake. She began a second feud with Martina by intimating that she played and looked more like a man than a woman. Hana effectively alienated herself from the other players and tour officials.

At Wimbledon, she had every right to be confident about her chances of winning. But some felt that she wasn't giving enough credit to the big two. She breezed through a dark horse favorite Jo Durie in the QF but lost tamely to Evert in the SF.

Hana made the trip to Brazil later that summer and lead the Czechs to their second straight Fed Cup title.......again on red clay. But a leg injury would force her to skip most of the hard court season. She went into the US Open having only played two matches and lost to Carling Bassett in the QF.

However, the US Open contained one bright spot.........an end to her feuds with Martina and Chris. As described in her book, Hana waited until she and Martina were alone in the locker room. She walked up to her and stuck her hand out and apologized to her in Czech. Martina said she instantly felt relieved and forgave Hana whom she felt a kinship with. She also had a long talk with Chris about how things get blown up in the news media.........specifically the comments or rather non comments that Hana had made at Wimbledon about like her chances of winning it.

Afterwards, Hana felt tired and decided to not go to Australia. She felt that she had turned a corner in her career and decided to rest up and steady herself for a grand slam title run in 1985..............

For Hana, 1985 began with respectable losses to the young and improving Kathy Rinaldi, Catarina Lindqvist, and Carling Bassett. But at one of her favorite tournaments, Oakland, her hard work would start to show. She rifled through the fields in Oakland and at the US Indoors without dropping a set. This includes a 6-2, 6-4 defeat of old nemesis Evert and a 7-5, 6-0 defeat of Navratilova.

Going into the Virginia Slims Championships in NYC, she was clearly on a roll. She zipped through to the semis for an eagerly anticipated rematch with Martina. Anxious to make up for the 6-0 drubbing in the last set that they played, the champion was ready to make amends. But Hana wouldn't go quietly that day. As Bud Collins said, they "ripped" each other from every angle on the court. Blowing leads in both sets, Hana lost 7-5, 7-6 in what was truly a stunning match of talent and shotmaking from both players.

During the clay court season, Hana embarked on a rigorous training routine shortly before the beginning of the French. Dutch trainer Joop Ooms was merciless towards her, whipping her into the best shape of her life. Hana felt prepared to win the French Open and believed she would. However after cruising through to the QFs, she ran out of steam. Claudia Khode Kilsch took advantage of it and Hana found herself out of the tournament, 6-4, 6-4.

At Wimbledon, she played scratchy in getting to the 3rd round against the dangerous grass court specialist, Liz Smylie. Even a behind the back passing shot up the line couldn't save Hana on that day as she lost in straight sets. A change was needed. Hana's brother Vilem convinces her to cut her hair short. Joan of Arc has risen!

She was disappointed but continued to work hard sans the long hair and headband that was her trademark. After losing a close, 6-4 in the 3rd set battle to Evert in Toronto, Hana felt that the stars might be lining up just right for a third run to the final in New York.

She got no favors from the draw. But double-bagled Hanika in the 3rd round, survived in 3 sets against K. Jordan, and prevailed in a tightly played QF with Sukova, 7-5, 7-6. In the semis, she faced Chris, the woman who had beaten her in 4 of her previous 6 US Open entries. After losing the first set, a calmness settled over Hana. It was the confidence from all of the off court work she had been doing. She knew that she could stay out there all day if need be. Waiting patiently for her opportunities to attack and putting in plenty of blistering first serves throughout the last two sets, Hana was too much for Chris on this day. She won the last two sets, 6-2, 6-3.

Hana said she felt "relieved" because she found Martina's style of play easier to play against than Chris'. Feeling loose and confident, Hana raced off to a 5-0 start in the final against Martina. Later, Martina said she just hung in there until Hana quit hitting winners reasoning that no woman could keep that pace up. Fighting back, Martina took the set into a tie break. But once again, Hana's free flowing shots put her behind early as Hana closed out the first set bravely charging forward on Martina's first serve and and volleying behind her for a winner.

Martina sensed a let down from Hana in the 2nd and steamrolled to a 6-1 win. But the third would be a fight to the finish. Both women combined for over 100 winners in the match. But it was Hana who played who was swinging from her heels in the 3rd set tiebreak. Bud Collins compared Hana's winning backhand volley to one of "Pavlova's balletic movements" as she collapsed on her back in victory. She had not only won her third grand slam title. But she also had defeated quite possibly the game's two all time best players on successive days to do it.

Hana continued to play well through the fall and her Australian Open SF showdown with Martina brought up an interesting question. If Hana won the tournament, where should she be ranked? The computer would've left her just short of #2 in the world. But she would have more grand slam titles than anyone else. Unfortunately for her, Martina avenged the US Open loss to Hana and beat her 6-4 in the 3rd before beating Chris in the final.

As Billie Jean King put it, "the big two had become the big three."

1986 was a year for Hana for to further build upon what she started in 1984. 1985 saw the realization of her return to the Grand Slam winner's circle. So it made sense that 1986 would see a repeat.

1986 was to be a good year for Hana, but not great. It was by far her most consistent year of her career. Her relatively few bad losses coming at the very beginning of the year and then again at the very end plus an early exit from the US Open.

In the past, it was usually Chris that stood in Hana's way of a better year. But there's no doubt that Martina was the spoiler in 1986. Not only did Martina defeat Hana in all 7 of their matches, she defeated her in 6 tournament finals including the Virginia Slims Champs and Wimbledon plus in the Fed Cup final in Prague. Some of the matches were close and some weren't as close as they should've been. But there's no doubt that Martina had a stellar year in 1986 and enjoyed great success against Hana.

Hana had a nice straight set win over Chris at the March Virginia Slims tournament. She was in control the whole match before Evert made a mini run to make the second set close. She also swept Chris in the semifinals at Wimbledon 7-6, 7-5. In that match, Hana had to come from behind in both sets to win in another sign of her maturation as a player. Chris did have one win against Hana in 1986 in the French Open semis. A top form Evert swept her aside after Hana saved a match point and halted Graf's 24 match win streak.

The trip home to Prague for Fed Cup was obviously a big moment for Martina, but also for Hana as well. As captain of the home team, Hana made a speech in Czech to the home crowd of 7,000. In her welcoming speech, she praised the world's top two players and told the Czechs that it would be a rare treat for them to see such fine tennis in person.

Martina winced as Hana became the first person in 11 years to publicly mention the name "Martina Navratilova" in Czechoslovakia. Despite having been warned by Czech authorities to not do so, Hana perhaps repaid Martina for her outburst in 1984 by honoring her by name, first in Czech and then again in English.

However, tennis was not the only reason why Prague 86 was to be special for Hana. During the tournament, she and Jan Sedlak quietly went down to the mayor's office and were married. They had decided to do this while Hana was playing in Berlin earlier in the year. Jan, a Czech restaurantuer in Sydney, had never been noticed travelling with Hana. But the two had been long time friends. After having coffee and playing croquet with Jan on her wedding night, Hana lost the Fed Cup final to Martina.

During the summer, Hana severely sprained her right ankle while playing an exhibition as touring pro at the Four Seasons Resort in Lancaster, PA. A doctor told her to withdraw from the US Open and rest. But she didn't want to miss the chance to open the US Open tennis tournament as defending champion. Stoked with painkillers, Hana made it no further than the 4th round where her doubles partner, Wendy Turnbull, eliminated her in 3 sets.

Hana had a solid fall indoor season, but kept running into an in form Martina flying high from titles in New York and Wimbledon. In the semis of the Chicago event, she had a great match with Pam Shriver. After Hana won it in the third set, she and Pam embraced instead of the customary handshake.

But her next meeting with Pam in New York wouldn't be as pleasant for her. While serving for the match at 6-4, 4-3, Hana received what she thought were 6 bad line calls against her in two games. A normally reserved Betty Stove was very upset at what she was seeing and filed a complaint. Hana failed to pull herself together and lost to Pam 6-1 in the 3rd. Betty, an ITF and WTA board member, spent the next 2 months insisting that training for linespersons be improved and that professional, full-time umpires be hired by the WTA. Betty was successfull. But it didn't change the fact that Hana ended the year with no singles titles.

Billie Jean King said of Hana's 1987, "This is the time for her to either do it (become #1) or don't do it." With the rise of the fast improving Steffi Graf, this statement was very true. After a few years of Hana nipping at the heels of the big two, Martina and Chris, Steffi was a player that was ready to usurp them.

Hana began the year in grand fashion. She defeated Shriver and Sukova to win the Aussie warmup at Brisbane. She then moved through the field in Melbourne destroying Lori McNeil 6-0, 6-0 and edging Khode Kilsch 6-3 in a 3 set semifinal. After losing to Martina so many times in 1986, hardly anyone gave Hana a chance of defeating her in the Australian Open final. That proved to be a big mistake. Hana's 7-5, 7-6 win solidified Hana's position as one of the very top players in the game.

Afterwards, a tipsy Hana went to a Lionel Richie concert where Richie called her up on stage to take a bow. After "Dancing on the Ceiling" with the pop star, she admitted that organizers had a hard time getting her off stage!

Hana continued to have a solid, if not spectacular, spring. She won her third title at the Virginia Slims of Washington D.C. and made her seeding in losing to Evert in the semis at the Lipton and on clay in Houston. She also was a r/u to Steffi on clay at Amelia Island.

However, while working with Joop Ooms once again, she heard her hamstring pop. She rested between Houston and the French Open. But shortly before she left for Paris, fluid began to collect on the heel of her foot. She crushed former champ, Mima Jausovec, in the first round 6-0, 6-0 but could hardly move against French nationale Nathalie Herreman and lost.

Determined not to miss Wimbledon, she tried to play Eastbourne. But it was quickly apparent that neither her heel nor her hamstring was ready. She was forced to withdraw from Wimbledon. Just when she needed to be in the fight along with the big two and Steffi, she couldn't physically perform.

Hana was to reveal 15 years later that it was during this period of her life that she was having serious personal problems including a pregnancy.

Later that summer, Hana was to represent Czechoslovakia for the last time in Fed Cup in Vancouver. Hana played decently that week sweeping aside Bassett and others in the straight sets with a heavily strapped leg. But she was no match for Steffi as the wunderkind defeated her in the semis, 6-4, 6-1. An interesting side note to this Fed Cup is that Hana got to know a person that would become very important in her life from years to come: Jana Novotna.

With little time to get back into the race for #1, she made her way to Los Angeles for the beginning of the hard court season. She lost in the QF to Gabriela Sabatini for the first time in 6 matches, 7-5 in the 3rd. At the Canadian, the WTA feted her on court with a cake celebrating her 500th match win after defeating Alycia Moulton. But she lost in the next round to Barbara Potter.

Her US Open was no better. In another Hana meltdown, she lost control of a match that she whould have won in straight sets over Khode Kilsch. Her frustration poured out onto the court, smashing a scoreboard with her racquet, as she suffered a warning, point penalty, and a game penalty in the 3rd set. Then she was helped by Evert and Turnbull to allude reporters as she locked herself in a public bathroom. The bathroom was then known as "Hana's loo."

She limped through the remainder of the year losing a final in Zurich to Graf and defaulting at the Virginia Slims Champs.

To understand how disappointing 1988 was for Hana, let's first understand what 1988 was supposed to be like. As a newly minted Australian citizen, she was to win Wimbledon, represent Australia at the Olympics, and then retire to have a family with Jan. None of these things happened.

Hana celebrated on Australia Day as she took her oath as an Australian citizen. She then was invited to speak at the Australian Open's walk of champions to commerate the opening of that tournament's new home, Flinders Park. She received a warm welcome from champions of Australia's golden history and a raucous reception from her new countrymen. She was to learn later that because of time constraints, she would not be allowed to represent Australia in the Olympics.

Having missed so much action in 1987 and losing points, her ranking had slipped to 5th which was key in tournament draws. And as World Tennis magazine put it, Hana, "had her crown blown off" by Steffi Graf 6-2, 6-2 in the QF.

Believing she had recovered completely from her hamstring injury, she was frustrated and dismayed when she re-injured it while preparing for the winter indoor season. With her leg heavily strapped and with the uncertainty and doubt that injury inflicts on its victims, she played poorly in losing to Savchenko 7-6 in the 3rd in Oakland and 6-4, 6-2 to Martina in Washington. Her one highlight was a good 3 set win over the improving Natasha Zvereva.

She took another break after Washington and disappearing from the tour until the German Open. There, she lost early and broke down. Even feeling desperate enough to confide in her rival, Martina. She decided that she would take the rest of the year off and decide what to do. But she wanted to play through Wimbledon where she had been so disappointed not to be able to play the year before. After losing 6-4, 6-3 to Anne Minter in the 3rd round, she packed up her racquets and retreated to her motor boat in France.

During this time, problems in her marriage came to a head. With goals still not accomplished, Hana decided that she wanted to play on for another couple of years. Jan would ask her for a divorce that was finalized in Nov.

After 3 months of soul searching, total rest, relaxation on her boat, and re-acquainting herself wtih old friends over wine as she wrote her autobiography and 3 months of preparation for a return to the tour, Hana re-emerged in her new homeland of Australia. She teamed with Pat Cash in the inaugural Hopman Cup. She lost all of her singles matches as it took her some time to get her rhythm and confidence back. But they did well to reach the finals losing to (ironically) Czechoslovakia.

With new coach, Mike Estep at her side, she scored a respectable win over tour veteren Jo Durie as well as against two newcomers: Mary Joe Fernandez and Amy Frazier. But even with the crowd backing her, Hana could not overcome Martina in the 4R of the Australian.

Her return to the states would be a successful one. She reached the semis at Indian Wells (or as Hana called it "Indiana Wells). There, she upset Chris Evert in a 1R match. Both commented to the other that neither wanted to play the other before the match. But it was Hana who prevailed 6-0 in the 3rd. This would be their last meeting as Chris was to retire later that year. Hana managed to do what few had ever done in Chris' career: defeat her 7 times and on most of the world's largest stages for tennis.

Hana also reached the semis in San Antonio. She and Steffi Graf contested a match where the temperatures were in the low 40's and wind gusts were up to 50 mph. Playing in track suits and drinking warm liquids on the changeovers, both players managed as well as could be expected against the conditions. Hana had a set point against Steffi in the first set. But could not convert and lost 7-6, 6-3.

On to the clay court season, where Hana played well at both Hilton Head and Amelia Island. She lost hard fought matches at both tournaments: to Martina at Hilton Head and to Steffi at Amelia.

Excited about playing the Italian for the first time in 7 years, Hana made it through her first round match. But tweaked her back in doing so causing her to pull out of the tournament. She might as well have defaulted in Paris as well since she went out in the 1R to little known Andrea Viera.

At Wimbledon, Hana played well to get to a 4R showdown with Martina. Having split their previous two matches at the big W, she hoped this would be her signature win in her comeback. Especially since all but one other seed had already been knocked out of this side of the draw. But it wasn't to be. Martina won easily, 6-3, 6-2. 6 months into her comeback, it was probably then that she realized that her health and the changing game would probably not allow her to obtain the only goal she had yet to achieve.

She did play well against Martina in Los Angeles that summer, losing 7-5, 7-5. But as her confidence dropped, it was to be her last good effort of the summer. She scraped and barely survived through to the 3R of the US Open where Donna Faber scored the upset win over Hana.

She won most of the matches she was supposed to that fall. But could not score victories against higher seeded players like Sabatini, Sukova, Seles, or M. Maleeva. All players (except Seles) that Hana usually defeated.

For the way she was playing, Hana had a decent year. But she was extremely unlucky with her draws as she had to face Martina or Steffi 8 times in 4R-SF matches. This might be good for some players. But it wasn't good enough for Hana's standards.

Hana decided to play on long enough for one more chance at Wimbledon. This time, just for fun.

Hana's final year as a professional tennis player was 1990. She was only 28. But in some ways, the power game had passed her by. Martina was later to say on Hana's retirement, "She was an uncalculated player. But the game is much more calculated now." Perhaps if her body would've allowed her, she might have stayed on enjoying the new challenges being presented by Seles, Capraiti, etc.

But something that did interest Hana was coaching her now good friend, Jana Novotna. They shared Mike Estep as a coach for a few months before Hana (with some help also from Betty Stove) agreed to coach Jana. She would continue in this capacity until the end of Jana's career in 1999.

Hana's only real bright spot in the few singles matches that she played in 1990 was in San Antonio. She defeated Savchenko there before losing a tough match against Monica Seles, 6-4, 6-4.

She won her first round match at Wimbledon 9-7 in the 3rd. But went out in the 2R to serve and volleyer and tour veteren Ann Henrickson. With a wave and a thankful smile to the crowd, her career as a tennis player was over.

Thank you so much for putting together this thread with all the info on Hana both on and off court. It really gives a great overview of the player and the woman.

I am struck by the similarities with Evonne - the early success, when she burst onto the stage as a teenager, a long apprenticeship during her early twenties wjhen she had to play second fiddle to older champions and then, at the moment when it seemed to be her turn, a series of injuries and changes in her personal life around 25 which ultimately led to a premature departure from the scene before 30.

Tht's a great Job, Hanafan GA! It seems that it's really difficult to have precise results on some European Tournaments before 1980, cos some were sanctionned by WTA, but were not always included in the likes of the Virginia Slims or Colgate Series, so it's difficult to know (Barcelona, Milano,...)her true results.

However, you've made a (very light) mistake, concerning Las Vegas in 1980 : there were 2 events in Las Vegas, this year : one in the beginning of the year, part of the 'Futures Tour", and one other in the Colgate Series, in Autumn. Hana lost in final in the Colgate event to Andrea Jaeger, but was not part of the first one, also won by Jaeger.
Keep doin your great job!
