How sad that the two great US Clay Queens (Richey and Evert) never met in the US Clay Court Championships! An early 70's matchup would've been classic.

They did meet once at the Clay Courts PF. In 1975 Nancy was up a match point vs Chris in the semis. Chris dodged the bullet and Nancy defaulted in the third due to cramps.


It was the closest scare Evert had during her 125 match win streak on clay until Austin beat her at Rome in 1979.

Thanks for the correction, Rollo. I read the posts about this match earlier. Just overlooked it. I made the correction above. So the Richey/Evert match lived up to its billing. Still, a 1972 or 1973 matchup would've been a tough test for Evert.
