In popular culture
In the Seinfeld episode "The Lip Reader" Jerry and George visit the 1993 US Open, where they can be seen sitting in the stands of an undisclosed outer court watching one of the three women's singles matches featuring a Croat. Kramer is also seen watching the Open on TV, where the reporter can be heard crediting a match win to Natalia Baudone, 3–6, 6–3, 7–5, over Mary Pierce. Pierce won the actual match 6–0, 6–7, 7–6. Kramer becomes a 'ballman' for the tournament later in the episode and accidentally injures Monica Seles in the final. Seles did not play in the tournament that year owing to an incident in April 1993 which prevented her from playing competitive tennis until August 1995.
