Re: Has there ever been an instance where the BETTER player on the day LOST the match
Chris Evert in the 1975 Wimbledon semis against Billie Jean. Chrissie had finally raised her game to be able to beat BJK, but fell apart in the second set, and let BJK in the door. Laster Chrissie shared that it was because her on again off again boyfriend (Jimmy Connors) had brought a cute little UK actress to the match, which totally unnerved her upsetting her concentration.
