Chris Evert/Martina Navratilova 30 for 30

This one hour documentary (unmatched) has been out for a year or so but I only saw it for the first time recently. I never saw these two play but it was interesting to hear from them about their careers and each other. Has anyone else seen it?
What did you think?

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Jelena Dokic, Jarmila Gajdosova, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze


Will my weakness for an hour, make me suffer for a life time?

Re: Chris Evert/Martina Navratilova 30 for 30

Its an amazing documentary that gave me goosebumps all the way through. Very nicely filmed. Loved the conversational style of it.

Was also nice to see Chris admit that all things being equal, on her best day she just wasnt as good as Martina on her best day...

The best thing about it, is that, we've always known Martina to be an open book, willing to discuss just about any personal or sensitive topic.. But Chris has always been so much more guarded about personal stuff, and this was just about the most open Ive ever seen her when discussing past feelings and emotions so it was really nice to see Chris open up.

My fave moments are when Chris heartfelty tells Martina she always envied Martina for Martina;'s ability to say what she thought with such honesty and wear her heart on her sleeve because Chris was inhibited in that area.. And other fave moment was when Martina gives Chris a genuinely sweet Thank YOu for being completely cool and understanding of Martina;'s homosexuality, back in a day when it wasnt cool to be accepting of gay people.

Of even more significance, there's this little gap in Graf's resume the size of the hole in the ozone layer: It's called Monica Seles. Was Graf the best female player of all time? She wasn't even the best in the heart of her career.

I'll have to add it to my 'List of Movies to watch'

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

My favorite part was Chris' confession that she and Andy Mill made love for the first time at Martina's house in Aspen.

Is it on DVD? How can we get to see it? I loved the book about them, The Rivals.

Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.


Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.

It was on You Tube for a while. It seems to keep getting pulled down, then put back up, then pulled down..so just keep trying there..

Re: Chris Evert/Martina Navratilova 30 for 30

Very good program.

Very interesting insights from two legends of this sport talk about one another and in such a friendly manner

I image it might be somewhere on the ESPN website.
