30 years ago. Lets dig up some videos from 1984 and take a trip backi n time.
Below: Navratilova d. Evert 6-3 7-5 6-1 for the Slims Championships in New York.
I vividly recall watching this in a new apartment on a small TV set. Evert had just switched away from wood.
At the time the POWER of both women drew gasps from the crowd. Just a week or so earlier they had duked it out at the US Indoors.
Viewed now the power aspect looks tame compared to 2014 bang-bang tennis.
But consider the tactics, varied style, and sheer shotmaking-and this final sparkles.
Enjoy and leave comments!
P.S. The point at 2.00 is to die for!
