Tennis great Chris Evert was born December 21, 1954. She was women's tennis champion between 1974 and 1986. Chris Evert was famous for her poise on court and her powerful two-fisted backhand. Evert grew up playing tennis with her father in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. When she was 15 years old she landed in the spotlight with a win over the top-ranked woman in tennis, Margaret Court. The next year she made it to the semi-finals of the U.S. Open. She lost to Billie Jean King, but her skill and on the court made her a crowd favorite.

Her cool demeanor on the court earned her the nicknames "Ice Princess" and "Ice Maiden," but her easy charm off the court made her famous beyond the sports pages. She had a two-year romance (1974-76) with tennis champ Jimmy Connors that added to her her celebrity. Throughout the late '70s Evert was one of the sport's dominant players, and her charisma and a thrilling rivalry with Martina Navratilova helped popularize women's tennis.

Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova faced each other a total of 80 times. Navratilova ended up with a 43-37 advantage. Retired since 1989, Chris Evert occasionally does on-air commentary for NBC television. She holds 157 singles titles, 8 doubles titles and a career total of 18 Grand Slam singles titles. She won the French Open seven times, the US Open six times, Wimbledon three times and the Australian Open twice. She won 18 Grand Slam singles titles, including a record 7 at the French Open. According to the Women's Tennis Association, she was the year-ending World No. 1 singles player in 1975, 1976, 1977, 1980, and 1981 and, according to many sources, in 1974 and 1978.

Chris Evert's career win–loss record in singles matches of 1,309–146 (.900) is the best of any professional player in tennis history. In tennis writer Steve Flink's book The Greatest Tennis Matches of the Twentieth Century, he named Chris Evert as the third best female player of the 20th century, after Steffi Graf and Martina Navratilova. Evert never lost in the first round of a Grand Slam singles tournament, her earliest exits being in the third round. In women's doubles, Evert won 3 Grand Slam titles.

Evert holds a record 125 consecutive wins on clay courts, a streak broken in 1979 by Tracy Austin. In 1979 she married John Lloyd and began competing as Chris Evert Lloyd. She and Lloyd divorced in 1987. Evert married Olympic skier Andy Mill in 1988 and divorced him in 2006. They have three sons. In 2008 she married professional golfer Greg Norman in The Bahamas. She now lives in Boca Raton, Florida with Norman and her three sons.

Chris Evert operates a tennis academy bearing her name in Boca Raton, Florida. She also helps coach the Saint Andrew's School high school tennis team.
