Martina's Million Dollar gift
I was recently leafing through a small book entitled "Tennis's Most Wanted" and found a piece of information in it and was uncertain about its accuracy. In the book, author Floyd Conner states that in the 1980's, the International Tennis Federation offered one-million-dollars for any player who could win the Grand Slam. He then stated that after winning the French in 1984, Martina claimed she won the Slam. "Following much debate", the writer states, "the ITF decided to award Martina the one-million-dollars." Does anyone recall the details surrounding this - is this indeed accurate?
