A notable U.S. Open quote from 1976

"She seems to think that she'll get a nosebleed if she comes to the net, so she hangs back there like a battleship shelling a port miles away. Boom, boom, boom, over and over again, harder and harder. I wondered where the power came from."

Goolagong was a finalist at the U.S. Open for four consecutive years. She never won it.
