 Saying goodbye again
Against Steffi Graf in the championship match, in the tournament she was supposed to win, Jana Novotna surrendered to her nerves and let slip a 6-7 6-1 4-1 lead to lose the Wimbledon final in such traumatic circumstances.
Wimbledon 1993 would then turn out to be a showcase featuring Jana Novotna against herself and Steffi Graf, facing the challenge of both her nerve and her greatest opponent, and it would play itself under the most emotionally traumatic of circumstances.
Jana herself revealed last year at the Chase Championships (where she was defeated by Graf in the first round) that perhaps she had been prevented from accomplishing more in the game because of the dominance of Steffi Graf.

An exasperated Novotna was furious at the umpire, George Rustscheff, who was overruling calls she thought were good and not overruling calls she didn't like, and an obscenity came from Jana's mouth that earned her a warning from Rustscheff.
Novotna was not to win another game, and it was not long before a delighted Sanchez could savour a sweet three-set win and yet another appearance in the Canadian Open final.
