Chris Evert Lloyd was one of my favorites. A classy tennis player and not one to make excuses after a poor performance, Lloyd ranks among the all-time greats. From August 1973 to May 1979, Lloyd won 125 consecutive matches on clay courts. In all, she has won more than 100 titles, Lloyd’s strengths were her baseline play and two-handed backhand. She was the first female tennis player to earn over one million dollars.
