    What has she done lately ?

    She did have an epic match with Serena a couple years back that i recall. There was an 18 or 20 year old kid in the stands with her family that i thought may be her son. I was rooting for her, and i think she finally lost in the third.

    We're going to need a thread name change though as she's now divorced. Back to Kimiko Date for her!

    Really? Wow. I had no idea. Awesome, I always thought the "Krumm" kind of ruined her name.

    Don't understand why today's modern liberated women need to take their husbands' names at all! IMO they should just stick with their own names, the ones most people know them by anyway (at least for professional reasons). :cool:

    I still smile at the memory of 'Miss C.M.Evert' suddenly appearing on the Wimbledon noticeboard as 'Mrs.J. Lloyd' after her marriage to home favourite, John Lloyd back in 1979! ;)

    And ended her Wimbledon career as "Mrs Evert" :)
    PS - it was Mrs J M Lloyd.

    From Wikipedia:

    Prior to 2009 female players were referred to by the title "Miss" or "Mrs" on scoreboards. As dictated by strict rule of etiquette, married female players are referred to by their husbands' names: for example, Chris Evert-Lloyd appeared on scoreboards as "Mrs. J. M. Lloyd" during her marriage to John Lloyd, since "Mrs. X" essentially designates the wife of X. This tradition has continued at least to some extent.[39] For the first time during the 2009 tournament, players were referred to on scoreboards by both their first and last names.[40]

    The title "Mr" is not used for male players who are professionals on scoreboards but the prefix is retained for amateurs, although chair umpires refer to players as "Mr" when they use the replay challenge. The chair umpire will say "Mr <surname> is challenging the call..." and "Mr <surname> has X challenges remaining." However, the umpires still say Miss <surname> when announcing the score of the Ladies' matches.

    Thanks. Didn't know John had a middle initial.

    She ended up calling herself 'Chris Evert-Lloyd' until her divorce from John. I don't recall her adopting the surnames of any of her subsequent husbands. :cool:

    I love any excuse to post this match from her last Wimbledon!

    Note the scoreboard states "Mrs C M Evert"

    In a 1989 documentary, Evert stated she stuck with 'Evert' because it was getting too confusing for spectators :)

    46 is a tad too old. She might want to re-consider.
