One of the Best

International Hall of Fame player Chris Evert left a proud legacy on the tennis courts. Evert debuted at the US Open in 1971 and, at 16 years old, was the youngest player at the time. Evert later went on to win the women’s singles title three times in 1975, 1976 and 1977. Evert also holds the distinction of being the only woman to win a U.S. singles title on clay courts at the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills. (Photo: Getty Images)
