Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova on the Global Stage
This chapter discusses the legacy of the rivalry between tennis players Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova. It explains that their rivalry was so intense that they played each other 80 times — with 60 matches being final matches. The differences between their backgrounds, styles, and nationalities, played out so wonderfully well that no rivalry in the entire history of sport could match theirs. It adds that after they both retired from tennis, they remained in contact and are said to be good friends.
