Great statistics, I never knew there was an Olympic demonstration event in 68. Funny that the America crowd supported Goles vs. Horvath (but I like it). Pity though that Jaeger had to default, she would have beaten Graf in the next round.

Why did Lenglen not play in Paris 1924?

Fate always got in the way of Lenglen and Wills meeting except the one time in Cannes. Suzanne was all set to enter the Olympics in 1924 but she came down with jaundice and defaulted at Wimbledon weeks before the games. She didn't come back until early in 1925.

Filled in the medalists for years in which we have no draw, the missing doubles scores from 1992 and 1996, and the 1996 singles draw.

If anyone has any of the draws/scores we're missing, let us know.

In a normal tournamnet it wouldn't have bothered me, but here we are at the Olympis representing the United States, and it's a joke." Goles remarked og her support, "I couldn't believe it. It helped me a lot."

To this day I never understood that. Was the crowd really that behind Sabrina? Perhaps many in the crowd were Yugoslavian? Horvath in 1984 I think was pretty well known in the States as a tennis player.

Never saw another article that went further about that match so I am still wondering if there was more to it for Horvath to have reacted so negatively.

Horvath should be glad she wasn't playing against someone like Sabatini in Florida or New York.

They actually played each other in Florida twice. Have no idea what the crowds were like though.

Bit of a no-brainer, don't you think? Apart from her family, who on earth would want to root for Kathy Horvath (and the rest of the world asks, "Who???") when she's playing Gabriela Sabatini?

Considering Kathy was living in Florida before Sabatini why wouldn't they have rooted for her?
