From Great Quotes from Great Sports Heroes…

Chris Evert

The consistency of her performance and her steady baseline play made Chris Evert one of the most successful women in professional tennis. She won at least one major singles championship every year for 13 consecutive years, a record. An exemplary professional in her relations with her colleagues, the press and the public, she was the first player to win 1,000 singles matches as well as 150 tournaments, and the first woman to earn $1 million in prize money. Her winning percentage, .8996 is the highest in the history of professional tennis.

“If you can react the same way to winning and losing, that’s a big accomplishment. That quality is important because it stays with you the rest of your life, and there’s going to be a life after tennis that’s a lot longer than your tennis life.”

-Chris Evert
