I checked your updates, great job. Conchita used to have a nice game in old times, yet she was not a great at my eyes, I enjoyed her game.

IMO while Conchita's style isn't for most viewers or fans, those who play tennis can learn a lot from watching her in person. When I saw her at the 1999 US Open I was in awe of her deft use of spins and sheer variety. I gained (or regained-I first saw her at the 1989 Fed Cup in Tokyo) a new appreciation for her game.

Somehow the nuances in her game get lost on the TV screen.

Now that Conchi is officially retired this thread deserves a bump

Wow, I hadn't heard of Conchita's retirement. Congratulations to her a nice, long career. The first time I ever saw her, were in highlights of her 1988 US Open 1R match vs. Chris Evert. They didn't spend much time talking about Conchita at all. But I felt just from watching those few clips that big things could be ahead for her.

Well done Conchita!

That 1994 Wimbledon tournament was her perfect tournament. She played unbelievable and it was matter whether she could do it against Martina. Martina was like she can't do this forever but she did it long enough to win.

Real nice thread!

MISS YOU CONCHI!

SERENA WILLIAMS: I played her three times and twice we went to three sets, so it's definitely no easy way of playing Conchita Martinez, especially on clay. She's a clay court specialist, and you know, she's a Grand Slam champion. You can never take that lightly.... I think I had a very tough match my second round myself in this event because Conchita Martinez is a very good player, so that was definitely a tough match...

Fantastic thread!

Love the classic Conchi matches - especially when she demolished ASV in the French Open semis 2000!

Re: << The Legend Señorita Conchita >>

I liked Conchita very much.. but can never quite forgive her for beating Martina at Wimbledon to end Martina's chance of a record 10
