Chris Evert's Greatest Hits

Fascinating video features Chris Evert's 18 Grand Slam championship point wins, stretching from the 1974 French Open to the 1986 French Open. Interesting that she lost her first three major finals then won her next seven. The Tennis Channel recently took a swipe at Novak Djokovic for being 14-9 in Grand Slam finals, yet Chris -- the gold standard in consistency -- is 18-16. Also worth mentioning that Olga Morozova, Evonne Goolagong, Wendy Turnbull and Hana Mandlikova -- as well as the obvious Martina Navratilova -- each lost more than one major final to Chris.

Whoever put this together didn't know that the Australian Open used to be played at the end of the year, so they're slightly out of order.
