Navra in Wimbledon 1988-1990

In your opinion, how close to her best form has Martina been in those years?

Especially in the finals, regarding 1988 and 1989.
Rather overall, regarding 1990.

Martina herself talked so much about the differences in herself pre-BJK in 1989 and post-BJK. She said that her body was much better before 1989 but her mind was much better after 1989 at least as far as the pyschology of the game was concerned.

Martina felt the strain of Graf's challenge to her beginning in 1987. While she relished the challenge, her confidence clearly dropped. Confidence is such a key factor for any player but maybe more especially a serve/volleyer like Martina because she's constantly creating the points. When you look at the overall picture, I think Martina was at her best from 83-86 simply because of confidence. But there's no doubt that she made improvements to her game after 1988.
