Yes she is the greatest for me- not for the tennis per se but for the whole package. It was a privilege to be a young man growing up with people like her in the game. A legend of all sports.

I've loved Chrissie since I was a child really. It wasn't just for the tennis, though ofcourse that played a huge part of it. It was wondering what dress she would wear, what ribbons she would have in her hair, the jewellery etc. It was how she was always such a good sport, even though inside she was crying. At that time, she was tennis for me! The women's game at the moment, could certainly do with another Chrissie, but I think she was a one off, an original, a true legend

I was never really interested in her gear on court although I liked the glamour that players like Chris, Sue Barker and Renata Tomanova brought to the court. I remember a doubles match on the centre court in 81. Wade playing with Chris and looking handsome as ever, Chris like a real babe, Tomanova like a model. Poor Nancy Yeargin looked very plain next to these 3.

I agree she still looks great and very sexy. Mind you I am sure you are too. And I do remember that the boys at my school loved her. Although their favourite if I remember was Bettina Bunge. She was a stunning woman but I bet she looks nowhere near as good as Chris now later in life.

Thanks for that! But I think you should have gone to Spec-savers

Bettina Bunge,that's a name I haven't heard in a while. She was very pretty too, the boys at your school. certainly had good taste

<cough> Pamela Howard, is that you?

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)

LOL. Yes Bunge was a really stunning woman- beautiful as opposed to Chris and eg Sue Barker who were more pretty than stunning. Would be interested to see how Bettina looks mow.

I'm afraid I can't help, I goggled her, but none of the pictures were recent. It just shows you, what an exciting social life I have, and it's still 2 weeks till Wimbledon! What's a girl to do in the evenings(don't answer that, I've led a sheltered life)

You're not being dim. I'm pretty sure Samn is alluding to Pamela Howard Shriver-the "I dig guys-really!" player.

It's a sort of running joke here in the Blast.

I wish I could say that I have led a sheltered life- would have saved me a lot of blushes!!! I think there was talk that Bunge was an alcoholic- rubbish- and a lesbian. For the latter who cares if she is happy? I know that she commentated for Eurosport for a while but that seemed to be ages ago.

I must admit that I hadn't heard her name in years, until you brought it up, I didn't know she commentated for ES, and I watch tennis on there often. As for her private life, who cares, each to there own!
