Re: 1975 results
well we know maria bueno was a shadow of her former self when she played singles at wimby in 1977 even though a 6-2,7-5 lost to billie jean wasnt' that bad of a score, but anyway how was bueno's game 2 years earlier playing mixed doubles in 1975?
must have been better since her and nastase were neck and neck with the 1 seed court and riessen!
you know i've been trying to find bueno matches and clips from this period on youtube to see her game and how she played and looks and what her ability was even way past her prime and out of the game for so long on youtube without any luck?
i always wished that maria had not played billie jean at the 77 wimby and yet was still in chrissie's side of the draw, oh, to imagine chrissie getting to play bueno would have been such an all time highlight of tennis, even maria playing past her prime against number 1 chrissie would still be a match for the ages!
even if chrissie would have won handily, being that since maria lost to billie jean in straights, billie would get blown out in the very next round to chrissie 6-1, 6-2 in under an hour!
