Re: Chris Evert Thread

While it was pretty well-known that Evert's backhand was better than her forehand (all relative, of course), two particular stand-out matches for her forehand are the 1986 French Open final against Navratilova (win) and the 1989 Boca Raton final against Graf (loss).

The forehand is harder to suddenly change the pace, hit with more spin, but Evert could hit sidespin forehands down the line that just kept moving away from her opponent, and she could also produce a dropshot out of nowhere (incredible example is first match point she saved against Seles in the 1988 Houston final).
