I think Wendy might log into the site and answer questions directly as she asked me for the site details. That would be awesome to have another star from the past join us on our forum.
We would be thrilled to have Wendy on here TV

Yes its a shame but maybe she read some of the nasty comments you get on some threads on this site and thought she may become a sitting duck lol.

She looked like quite a forlorn lonely large lady sitting in the crowds at the AO as a special guest. I felt rather sad for her looking at her on TV wondering if she still has a happy life. She actually didn't look that well to be honest.

Anyone still in contact with her by email?

Hi Rollo. Yes it was a shame Wendy never got back to us but I agree with Renstar. If she saw some of the posts here it could have been devastating. So probably for the best unfortunately.

I'd hope not - someone from that era would have tons of interesting stories to tell, be fantastic if it ever did happen, would have loads to ask myself.

Rollo was just wondering the last time you were in email contact with Wendy? Did she give a reason she never got back to you?

We discussed her a little on a post in a Chris Evert facebook fan page In in. Would love to know her thoughts on her encounters with Chris and Martina and who she found the most difficult to play with and why.

Re: "Rabitt"-The Wendy Turnbull Thread

I saw her play in an early round match against Anne White in New Orleans in 1987. The crowd wasn't large, but they responded well to Wendy's entertaining style and Anne's glamour. There was one particular point that included some amazing saves, and the crowd oohed and aahed and cheered during play. After the point concluded, the chair ump asked the crowd to refrain from making noise during the point. Wendy raised her arms and said, "Ah come on, let them cheer. It's fun." What a great sport!

lol that sounds so Wendy, she was so down to earth, I really loved her commentary she did here on the 7 network I wish they would have her again. I remember as a teen seeing her play at the NSW open warm up tournament for the Aus Open and have a great win over Mandlikova whilst probably carrying quite a few extra pounds. Its a shame she didn't win one of those grand slam finals she played in but its great she even made them. Its funny I don't see Chris having much to do with her lately when she was quite a good friend at one stage.
