Anyone have 'World of Tennis' Report for Amelia Island 1983?!
Chrissie coming back from 2-5 down in the third to 'Darling' Carling Bassett is one of my most treasured matches; the tape of which was viciously stolen from my home back in 1986 by a crazy Bassett hound...I mean, fan-atic.
It was one of the most enjoyable baseline exchanges I've ever seen, and I remember distinctly that Bassett did not choke, but that Chris dug in deep, later saying that she just envisioned the face of the young 15 year old Bassett smiling at the net after winning, and that horrifying thought caused Evert's stirring come back on national television, 7-5 in the third.
If anyone has the report from that tournament they can post, it would be most enjoyed by this .....enthusiast.
