In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Chris Evert dominated tennis courts around the world like no player before or since. Voted Female Athlete of the Year four times by the Associated Press, Chris Evert, or Chris Evert-Lloyd as some remember her, won 157 career titles, 18 of which were Grand Slam singles titles, including a record seven at the French Open. Perhaps some of her success was due to a long-standing rivalry - a Chris Evert appearance at a tournament often guaranteed a Martina Navratilova appearance, as the two battled to be the leading female tennis star. Chris Evert retired in 1989 with the best career win-loss record in singles matches of any tennis player in history at 1,309-146, a 90 percent win rate. In addition to the headlines she made on the court, she was also a celebrity off the court with her marriage to British tennis player John Lloyd. Evert has also been linked to golfer Greg Norman, actor Burt Reynolds and tennis star Jimmy Connors.
