Re: Is this really Steffi??
Oh okay, thanks Rollo. Yes the article was in summer 1989. It looks more like Jana than Steffi. I find it hilarious that SI would try to pass her off as Steffi in a big multipage article. Even though there was no caption, in the pic above it's Steffi with Schmeling and below one would assume the young blond hugging Tingling was her as well.
Jana sure had some crap hairdos! God, I miss her. That arching of her back on each serve that just made you ache looking at it. Those crisp volleys. The anticipation of her unfortunate collapses. As much as I hated the outcome of the 1993 Wimbledon, it was one of the dramatic exciting matches ever. Just unbelievable. So Hana! And hearing Hana screaming Ai Jana (that's what it sounded like to me) was surreal.
