Hana Mandlikova - Her biggest wins
Many of her best wins aren't out there or the picture quality is too poor to bother watching them. But this is what I could find...

US Open SF 1985 vs Chris Evert (mediocre quality, but watchable)














US Open Final 1985 vs Martina Navratilova (mediocre quality, but watchable)




Wimbledon SF 1986 vs Chris Evert




Australian Open Final 1987 vs Martina Navratilova

Yeah, she was a great player when she was on. I was a big Chris Evert fan in those days, but I always like Hana as well and I'm happy for her that she was able to win that USO especially. Without it her career would have seemed a bit incomplete.

I enjoyed them, Jhar. As I said elsewhere, I had a little calf crush on Hanka ( as those in the know call her) and if she had Chrissy or Martina's toughness, she'd have double-figure slams. But she didn't, and her anxiety and fragility is what made her so compelling to watch...

Yes, in her book she says that she always had problems to concentrate. It's not that she didn't believe in herself because she knew that she could beat anyone, but she says that she lost many a match because she lost focus and started to think about things like what she was going to have for dinner that night.
