When Pam Shriver complained to the press during the 1985 Wimbledon fortnight that she was always ending up playing Martina Navratilova at big events, and never Chris Evert --it had been over 2 years since Evert & Shriver had played-- the press interpreted it as a challenge to the new #1 ranked Evert, and Chris did indeed take special notice of the comment. By the end, Shriver probably was glad she could instead play Martina, as Chris dished out one of the stunners of the '85 season in front of the Tennis Hall of fame crowd in Newport, RI.
