Interesting points Brian...its interesting that her success of Grass came late in her career, until then I would have said it was one of her weakest surfaces. I think ultimately she could do a solid job on any court, and she became an all court player.
The first time I saw Julie on TV, was when she beat Sanchez at 92 Wimbledon, on her way to the last 16.
I think its a big underachievement that she never bettered (or matched?) that result at Wimbledon again.
If the revised seedings sytem had been in place, I think her GS results would have been better, she didnt have the best luck in draws, and was often ranked just outside the top 16...a top 32 sytem would have done her a lot of good.
The year she lost to Stevenson represented her best chance to go far into the tournie...that loss still rankles.
