Chris Evert saving match points Djokovic-style with a wooden racquet on her US Open debut

LOL at this thread! But two things, I watched a ton of Chris Evert back in the day but have never seen her this young! And even so, she shows her famous lob even at this tender age, (which is.....anyone know?) She was a steadfast champion through and through.

If the announcer was correct toward the end, she was 16.

watch at 1:55, how identical with the djoko forehand against fed in the 2011 semis........she saved 3 match points in a row.......just wanted to troll ultronians with this thread........
Troll indeed!
I don't think you were paying too close attention, nor any of the others who have thus far responded!
Chris did not save three match points in a row!
She only saved two.

What you mean the third match point wasn't a save because it was a DF?
That's fair I guess but they are counted as match points saved in the stats.
Also apart from the 3 in a row she saved 3 other match points in the same game before finally breaking.

Yeah those statisticians can and will do all sorts of funny things with numbers/figures.
Someone can be up 40-0 on match points, double-fault three points in a row and they'll credit that
as the opponent 'saving' three match points. LOL!

Yes you're right Chris played superbly and did save three other match points in the same game.
Incredible grit she possessed. Great watching these vintage matches.

if a player double-faulted thrice in a row, it means he/she fears his/her opponent........so some credit to opponent as well........
