Chris Evert

Chris Evert was consistently at the top of world tennis in the '70s and '80s and number one in the official rankings for seven years.

Chris, one of the first to use the two-handed backhand, having beaten champions such as Margaret Court, Virginia Wade and Billie Jean King was already a name before even entering the professional circuit.

In 1974, the conquest of the Roland Garros at the age of nineteen gave way to one of the longest series of successes in the history of tennis: 154 titles won in the singles, of which eighteen are Grand Slam trials. Among his triumphs are also five titles at the Internationals of Italy.

Over the course of her almost twenty-year career, the American tennis player has won over 90% of the matches played. The highest percentage in all of the history of men's and women's professional tennis. Another record that has never been equaled is the sequence of 125 consecutive victories on the same surface, clay, where Evert remained undefeated for six years, from 1973 to 1979. The American tennis player also won at least one Grand Slam test for thirteen years consecutive, from 1974 to 1986.

Precisely because of the exceptional nature of the results achieved, sports literature has included the name of Chris Evert in the roll of honor of the greatest female champions of every era and discipline.

Together with Martina Navratilova, another great champion of the sport, she has generated one of the most famous and heated rivalries in the history of tennis.
