I'd say '85 Roland Garros. Chris had lost 13 matches in a row against Martina before Chris won in Florida in Spring '85 then lost 2 other matches. During this final Chris was leading 63 52 and then eventually won 63 67 75 in a dramatic match full of drama.

Story behind this match? Martina had beaten Chris in their previous meeting and went on to defeat her in their following match

Apparently Martina had a lot of sex with her lover the night before. It's in The Rivalry book.

I've heard that their RG final from 1985 was a good match but I rather choose their RG final match from 1984

Apparently it took a year for Chris to get used to her graphite racquet.

I really enjoyed their recent special on ESPN. Unfortunately, Evert is before my time tennis-wise. I like watching highlights of her matches though.

That must've been a really boring time in WTA. Those two meeting every week.

Respect to both for their longevity though.

Please tell me that was just a weak attempt at humor on your part.

I would say the 1986 French Open, Paris Clay Final Evert 2–6, 6–3, 6–3.

Evert's last major.

Venus Ana Caro Sloane
Timea Aga Masha Bencic Kristyna Keys Dani
Sania Vika Nicole Petko Simona Broady Robi CiCi Mladenovic Garcia JJ Errani Duval

Oooooh, good thread. I don't have much input as I wasn't around back then, but I'm interested to read everyone's analysis.
