A couple of days before the French Open began, I offered her some
undiplomatic advice. I thought she had been thinking too much on the
court instead of trusting her instincts.
"Mary, dear," I said bluntly, "you aren't too bright on the tennis court.
You might even be, well, unintelligent. So let's forget about the strategy and
the finesse and do what you do best. Get up on that baseline and whack the
crap out of every ball."
I gave Mary my best smile. "Don't think, dear," I said. "Just hit!"
Unquote. That was in 1994.
