Amazon is really underrated when it comes to mens and ladies accessories, ladies handbags and perfumes, calognes and other scents. You can find great deals and the top luxury brands on Amazon

I was a teenager in the 70s and was riveted by the rivalry between Martina and Chris. They were such a contrast, both in temperament and playing style. I remember being totally awed by the power and aggressiveness of Martina’s game, and at the same time impressed by Chris’s steely determination and passing shots. It always surprised me to hear that they were friends off court, because the media liked to play up personality issues and the extremes of their competition.
This documentary is a wonderful inside look at their careers and lives in respect to each other, both on and off the court. I had an overwhelming sense of nostalgia as I watched, reliving the excitement I experienced watching them play all those years ago. And it was heartwarming to see how these two great women relate to each other as they talked about their shared past.
Both women come across as very open and willing to discuss almost anything. They share a lot of interesting insights about themselves, and each other. They also cover a few interesting tidbits about how women’s tennis has changed between then and now. I like the format chosen, where most of the time they are simply in conversation with each other. It came across as relaxed, natural, and very real. These scenes are interspersed with tennis footage and individual interviews.
My only complaint, if you can call it that, is that I would have loved it even more if Unmatched were twice as long and included a lot more tennis footage. The tennis clips that are included are quite brief, and I think I was expecting a little more in that regard.
I highly recommend Unmatched to anyone who fondly remembers the greatest tennis rivalry of all time, or to anyone interested in the history of women’s tennis. I own a copy on DVD.
