Re: Chris Evert Thread

Chris Evert's last match at the French Open, a 1988 third round loss to Arantxa Sanchez Vicario 6-1, 7-6(4) on Court 1 (the "bullring") that took 2 hours, 51 minutes. That averages to 8 minutes, 33 seconds per game, precisely the kind of match that Evert hated to play at that stage in her career. But note the 54-shot rally that Evert won while serving to save the match at 4-5 (15-30).
