 Tennisrulz.com Message Board - Andrew's US Open reports
The Australian Open 1995 and French Open 2000 is one of the hardest hitters the women's game has ever seen, and I considered becoming a fan of hers (but didn't) when she thrashed Steffi Graf 6-2 6-2 in the semi-finals of the French Open 1994.
