"Martina complained...." now there's something new! To be fair to her, she did suffer in windy conditions on clay because the dust got over her glasses and affected her eyesight. Anyone who's played on clay wearing glasses will know what she means. Chrissie said playing indoors under lights affected her eyesight, too.
I've never seen that RG88 encounter (nor do I have any particular wish to). Natasha was a real prospect then and had a good baseline game plus an instinct for the volley, whereas MN was in mental meltdown mode. At the time it was a huge upset but looking back less so. It is such a shame for Natasha that she was like a rabbit paralyzed with fear in that final against Steffi. Even if she had played well, Steffi would have beaten her but maybe it wouldn't have damaged her singles career so definitively.
