Well, Mac skipped that party and Chris took the microphone and started her speech..." and I would like to talk on John´s behalf, but unfortunately I just don´t have his vocabulary"...big applause...

next day some journalists mentioned that to Connors and he, right at the spot, does.."I´ve been on court with Chris enough times to knoe she can match vocabularies with John anytime"...

Chris Evert had been long time fiancee with Jimmy Connors.John Mc Enroe was considered to be his worst enemy...
