Explanations page to 'Tennis Headline, July 1998':

- 'Countess' is a favored nickname of her's, among those who are aware of the pun "Graf" - "Gräfin"

- Wimbledon 1996 was her 100th title, I recall . . .

- The 'Ms. Smith' mentioned (I shouldn't have to explain this) is Margaret Court Smith, who won 24 Grand Slam Tennis (singles) titles... the count*, so far, is 21.

- ...vaguely reminiscent of someone's remark, about young Beethoven, "If he goes on like this, he will surely become a second Mozart." Another Great of European classical music Beethoven was indeed, but definitely not 'Mozart II'.

*Do I have to explain that, too?
