ESPN Classic: Evert v. Navratilova 1984 US Open Women's Final

Monday, August 29 1pm-3pm on ESPN Classic

I remember this match, and I know that when Chrissie won the first set, the crowd went wild (as they usually did for Chrissie) and that was the first set she had taken from Martina in a LOOOOOOONG time. If I remember correctly, she had double break point in the second set to go up a set and a break, but Chrissie missed an easy forehand and she just sort of went away. I can't wait to see it again!

yup, he does. This match was part of (maybe) the greatest day of grandslam tennis in history.

The legendary and original USOPEN super saturday.

2 classic mens semis and a keeper of a womens match..........

I dont know if this was martina or chris at their very most elegant, but seeing martina refuse to lose serve for the last 2 sets was amazing.


awesome! thanks for the reminder, TIVO set!!!!

I wish they would show more of the 85 final with Martina and Mandlikova. That was a spectacular match in itself but every year it's the same old same old.......the 84 Martina/Chris final.

Well, they do show replays of the '86 Martina/Steffi semis quite often. (Damn, so near and yet so far for poor Steff! If only the net had been a couple of inches lower. )

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)
