Re: Jana Novotna serve and volley club

I am assuming it was part of the same event, but last year the exo was a mixed doubles event, Mandlikova /Lendl vs. Novotna /Mecir.

The last article that I read about Jana's life today was about 12 years ago. It said that she was living in Virginia enjoying being a simple homeowner. She loved doing mundane things like ironing, vacuuming, and grocery shopping. I wonder how long that lasted?

But it did illustrate how travelling the tour for so many years makes some players crave normalcy.

Well didn't she manage the Luxembourg tournament for quite a while? Also, she was coaching Marion Bartoli for a short period of time, wasn't she? Don't know what she has been up to.

Jana was my favourite player back in the day and I still often rewatch her matches. Sometimes I wish to be taken into a time capsula (is that the word in English?) just to travel back to the day where she won Wimbledon and relive it all over again.
