Evert Bio on A&E + new Evert/Nav Book info

Hey all,

A & E biography: Chris Evert debuts on Oct. 24th at 10am and on the Biography Channel at 9pm on Oct. 26th. The word is that the air dates have already changed a few times per week already, so obviously MAY CHANGE before broadcast, but thats the latest.

This bio comes at a good time for Chrissie because she has ...uh, recently had a renewed interest in her playing years, and so she was fairly well involved in this and directed the A&E team toward a number of 'knowing' interview choices. plus, lets face it, she is clearly past the 'lookin like a mom' years and is in full-on 'hottie' mode.

PERFECT TIMING to capture a revealing, heartfelt portrait.

Oooo I can't wait to see this !!!!!!!


Will they show the long lost tape of Chris "comparing" Burt to John, or was that Vitas to Jimmy? , or --well you get the idea

On a serious note-I'd like to hear from Evert's parents. They were class all the way-Colette was a favorite of everyone and Jimmy Evert rarely left teaching tennis to go see his daughter. Chrissie's devotion to her dad was always evident.

Daze, sweetheart, have you heard anything more about the book on the Chris-Martina rivalry which is supposedly being written?

Are Jimmy and Colette Evert still alive? (I hope that question doesn't sound offensive.)

Lucky you to get to see it in advance. J-M, you, Samn and I could have done one ourselves: "The Four Queens on The Two Queens"

they're alive and healthy! Jimmy still gets out on the courts...shakes 'em up at the ol' Evert Tennis Academy every once in a while.

"Four Queens on the Two Queens" would be a sure best-seller. Have you read what's out there?! That's not writing. It takes folks like us to make tennis interesting to read about. Let it begin!

We'd sure have a scream writing it! Of course, our respected colleagues HanafanGA would provide us with the Hana angle, Jeff with the Steffi angle, Mark37 with the Evonne angle and Tennisvideos with the Madge/Frankie angle. We're missing a BJK and a Tracy fan! Any ideas?

Since I tend to like all of them, how about if I just edit? You know, a snip here, and a tuck there, no one will ever notice, and then when it's published, we can all say Dan Leatherman wrote it from memoirs he obtained from Roan on the secret writings of Alice Marble- whadayasay?

Roan!

(In my best Czech drawl)

Expect no cooperation from me unless I am quoted correctly. Don't put any words in my mouth and try to make me look bad! I know you're all against me.....but I don't care!!!

Er, Hana, there is no room for us to put words in your mouth considering how often you put both your feet in there.
