Summary

Gigi Fernandez and Mary Joe Fernandez were not related, but both were born in the Caribbean – Gigi in Puerto Rico and Mary Joe in the Dominican Republic. Mary Joe was the better singles player, but Gigi was hailed as one of the best doubles players in the world. She would eventually win 66 professional doubles titles. In the final they faced the redoubtable Spanish pair of Conchita Martínez and Arantxa Sánchez Vicario, but the Barcelona crowd could not help them overcome the Americans, who prevailed, 7-5, 2-6, 6-2.
