Chris Evert Lloyd d. Martina Navratilova, 7-5, 5-7, 13-11, final of the 1979 Eastbourne tournament.

This is something of a forgotten classic. It is not mentioned in Johnette Howard's great book, The Rivals.

But it left a great impression on those who saw it. Two weeks after it was played, Mike Williamson mentioned on Australian TV that "A lot of people thought it was the greatest womens match of all time." Wendy Turnbull added, "That was everyone's opinion."

This broadcast was by the BBC, and the commentator speaking is John Barrett.
