She made the 1990 Australian Open final losing 6-3 6-4 to Graf, the 1992 Australian Open final losing 6-2 6-3 to Seles & the 1993 French final losing to Graf 4-6 6-2 6-4 when she was up a break 4-3 in the final set. She made loads of Slam semis and quarters.
She was a pretty good doubles player too actually. She won the Australian Open doubles in 1991 with Patty Fendick beating GiGi Fernandez & Jana Novotna 7-6 6-1 in the final. She also won the 1996 French open doubles with Lindsay Davenport beating GiGi Fernandez & Natasha Zvereva 6-2 6-1 in the final. She also has an Olympic bronze medal for singles and two gold medals for doubles ( both with GiGi Fernandez ).
She was a very nice player in the classic Chris Evert mold. She was consistent and hit solidly off both sides (her forehand was more powerful). I think she did everything pretty well, but she didn't really do anything SUPER, which kept her from challenging the champions of her era, namely Graf and Seles. She did have several memorable battles with Sabatini, though.
