Bottom line: Jana Novotna’s game is an example of a lost art in tennis, especially the women’s game.
She played with a serve-and-volley style, which even in her time was declining, but she found great success with it.
For years, however, the title most befitting a serve-and-volley player, Wimbledon, eluded her.
In 1998, she fulfilled her longtime dream and won that title, the last of her style to do so.
