EDITED FOR EVERT FANS: HERE is a REAL TREAT from the archives! As real Evert fans know, you could often be more proud of Chris for the way she lost than necessarily when she won, because she fought to the end with heart, determination, and dignity. Goolagong was a more fluid and unpredictable attacking player than Chris' later rival Navratilova, and fans didn't tend to vote for/against either player - they loved them both!

Chris won their 1976 Wimbledon match to solidify her place at #1, but this match proceeded that as the big build-up (the Slims tour calendar ended in March). Goolagong won in 3 dramatic tough sets, and this event was a more important tournament than some of the grand slams back then. So it made Chrissie's win at Wimbledon all the sweeter. But these matches at Madison Square Garden & Los Angeles Coliseum are unrivaled for the excitement they always generated!
