Chris became interested in tennis when she was only five years old. Her father, Jimmy Evert, trained her and soon she started participating in various competitions, gaining good results and winning tournaments. Step by step Chris gained more experience and improved her skills, and in 1971 began participating in the professional tournaments, in which she achieved really good results as a 17 year-old, and ultimately over 17 years as an active professional. This, of course, had a huge impact on the growth of Chris Evert’s net worth.

In 1974 she won the Wimbledon Tournament and French Open, so her name became even more acclaimed and known among other tennis players and fans of this sport all over the world. In 1975 Chris Evert became the World’s No. 1 tennis player and this helped add to Chris’ net worth. After this Chris continued achieving great results in various tournaments and this made her even more famous. During her career she achieved a win-loss record of 90%, still the highest in the open, professional era. She had 157 tournament victories in singles play, and 29 in doubles, including winning the French Open seven times, the US Open six times, Wimbledon three times, and the Australian Open twice.

In 1989 Chris Evert decide to retire from her professional career as a tennis player. During her career, Evert played against all the best tennis players, including Margaret Court, Billie-Jean King, Virginia Ruzici, Wendy Turnbull, Andrea Jaeger, Monica Seles, Nancy Richey Gunter, Mary Joe Fernandez and many others. Even after retiring from her career, Chris was voted as Sportswoman of the Year and as the Associated Press Female Athlete of the Year. Now Chris has her own tennis academy, and also works as a coach at the Saint Andrew’s School. What is more, Evert works as a commentator at the ESPN, and has also launched her own line of tennis apparel. These activities are now the main sources of her net worth.

If to talk about Chris’ less-than-private personal life, in 1973 she became engaged to then world mens No. 1 tennis player Jimmy Connors, but sadly, their relationship ended in 1974. In 1979 Chris married British No. 1 tennis player John Lloyd, but in 1987 their marriage ended in divorce. One year later Chris married downhill skier Andy Mill, with whom she has three children, but the couple decided to end their marriage in 2006.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on tennis champion, Li Na] Li Na is a maverick. Who else would stand up to the centralized Chinese sports system as Li did, back in 2008, when she pushed for more control over her career? Tennis has exploded in China. 116 million people watched Li win the French Open. That kind of exposure is crucial to our sport, and it never would have happened without Li. She's such a breath of fresh air. And like Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova before her, Li Na has transcended her sport.
2Let's not get carried away here. In fact, feel free to tell your readers that I still have all my teeth.
