I couldn't help remembering how many major singles titles (2) she had won compared to Evert (18).

Does idolizing a player necessarily mean patterning your game (or on-court behavior) after him/her? I think especially of McEnroe and Laver; while they were both nominally serve-and-volleyers, there is some difference in both game and, er, attitude. Or even just further on the WTA 40-Love thing: there's Martina Hingis saying Monica Seles was her idol growing up, followed immediately by Monica Seles saying Martina Navratilova was her idol. Not much similarity there.

I unfortunately never saw the two play live. My dad saw them play live in the Canadian Open final once. I will ask him in some more detail what he thought.

Ask him if he saw any any others matches too.

If I could watch one non-slam event from start to finish this would rank high. It had the best field all year outside the slams (and better than some slams), Tracy Awesome beating Chris and Martina, Hana giving a linesman the finger, and at the end of their match Pam Shriver making Tracy Austin cry by calling her something unprintable!

And the crowds came out in droves.

The Canadian event has been a "biggie" for the women ever since.

I've seen them both play live - but not against each other - Wimbledon, Brighton and Eastbourne.

Re: The Tracy Austin - Chris Evert rivalry : eyewitness accounts needed!!

ROLLO friend: i think that shriver and austin at the net "incident" was at the san diego open NOT the canadian open? though i could be wrong... i thought it was san diego because it was the 1st time after shriver's upset of austin at wimbledon that they played each other and tracy was just a bit too "happy" at the end for shriver's liking?!...

I'm pretty sure it was Canada-but lets check and find out.

It mad for juicy headlines at any rate. 1981 is one of my favorite years-EVER.

Oops. I just saw Rollo beat me to the punch. I LOVE the quote about their meeting as pre-teens.
