fact checking evert's 13 year majors run
Don't know how i'd missed this. And, apologies because it's probably been brought up many, many times. Even so, worth another mention. We all know evert won at least one major for 13 straight years 1974 - 1986. Truly one of the best all time sports achievements. While watching aussie open this past week, someone brought up the feat is even more off the charts remarkable because in many years she only played two majors. Hmm. Had to check that. In five years she played all 4 majors. In five years she played 3 majors. In three years she played 2. There ya go...

Numbers are just mind blowing

We don't think about this one enough :

"Evert won more than half of the tournaments she entered throughout her 20 year career, made the finals in 76% of them, and made at least the semifinals in 90% of all the events she entered.:"

Chris Evert was a great player, amazing consistency. At least one GS title every year from 1974-1986. Only Martina stopped her winning many more Wimbledons.
