Somewhere, there is video of Bueno vs. Barker at Wimbledon. Bueno won a set before Sue came back. It's ok tennis. Bueno has some nice shots, but once Sue got grooved and got past her nerves, there was some ugly tennis, but Sue dominated.
well, yeah, chris would have stomped maria being that maria lost 2 and 5 to king and the very next round chrissie destroyed billie 1 and 2. maria might have got a few games off a slow starting chrissie, playing a legend she had never faced before at the big W and other factors.
Would have been an interesting draw for Chris if she was paired against Bueno in 2R. Chris states she was emotionally drained by the pressure of being defending champ, having to play 14 y.o. Austin in 3R, and then her grass nemesis King in the QF. If she had Bueno to contend with first (and I do think Chris would have beaten her easily) that might have only added to the stress. But it would have been an intriguing match up if they had a chance to play. I believe Martina got to play against Maria once.
PS - Kruger had good results at Wimbledon. She nearly beat Wade in 1976 4R, then she extended King to 3 sets in 1977, and in 1978 Kruger got to the QF. Then she sort of disappeared.
