“On this day, March 22, 1973, in Akron, Ohio, one of the greatest athletic competitions began, Chris Evert against Martina Navratilova. In their careers they met 80 times.” Chrissy immediately remembers USTA, and Martina commented: “I remember that match, I lost 6-3 7-6, 5-4 in the tiebreak that was 9 points … I wanted Chris to remember my name.”
Like all athletes, the Czech naturalized American has a wrong memory because the group ranking has been reversed, but regardless of these details, the unforgettable left-handed volleyball service specialist who is now outdated, has had so many problems never in the face. For a face with the tennis lady, the queen of flexibility from the ground up. He lost the first five matches, and reversed his path in Washington 1975, but only with a victory in the 1978 Wimbledon Final did he take the challenge with “America’s Friend” to an amazing level, ending that with a clear advantage: 43 wins to 37 defeats.
The two champions stimulated each other from a nutritional, athletic and artistic point of view, which contributed to the continually raising the level of competition between the two world class players that distinguished tennis in the 1970s and 1980s. Until the rise of the two dire girls, Steffi Graf and Monica Seles.
The Everett-Navratilova duel cemented the women’s tennis due to the total contradiction between the two characters, the perfect little girl who never lost her head, the daughter everyone wanted, in the face of the annoying defeat of the Iron Curtain who had also done a thrilling outing. And so, in a moment filled with male heroes, they fueled the much-demanding American show business.
single The internal rivalry between the sisters Venus and Serena Williams at dawn of the year 2000 Then he got such high scores and interests, so much so that he revolutionized the popular Super Saturday programming from the US Open that’s fueled by TV commercials.
The United States has a physiological need for the nation’s heroes to cheer, display, dress, and advertise. Otherwise, the interest in this sport ends dramatically. In tennis, this also happened in men, in the wake of the extraordinary rivalry between Agassi-Sampras, sponsored by the giant Nike.
Imagine a female, as Williams falls for physiological reasons and coveted rivalry Stephens Keys The rotating top ran out very quickly Sophia Kenin Despite snatching a Grand Slam tournament, she is not a dominant lady, and she is counting Coco Goof Ed Amanda Anisimova Still inconsistent at the highest level. Could Bianca Andreescu, As a Canadian of Romanian descent, he could have served as a surrogate for the lack of stars and streaks, but his fitness is down very early as she struggles to recover.
Certainly, however, the American public cannot be called upon to support many European girls, strong but not with such an overpowering figure as Awful. Martina Hingis From the hand of a fairy. And how it failed to be his designated heir, Belinda Bensick. With so many mid-rise but not-so-perfect heroes sharing the cake, who Party ad Halep, da Muguruza a Kvitova, da Swatek a Svitolina, da Pleskova a Sabalenka, To an illusion Ostapenko.
The thing that really stands out is Naomi Osaka The Queen of the Four Grand Slam championships is only 23 years old, and only the odd WTA Tour ranking system still relegates to official second place while virtually all opponents recognize him as the legitimate number 1.
Besides financially and technically, the girl is smart and personal, so she knows how to manage herself in the perfect way without overexposing herself, she is a little Japanese (from her mother), a little Haitian (from her father) and a little American, after growing up between New York and Beverly Hills , California.
But what is the real competitor to Osaka? It’s impossible to say at least how much is going on in her head.
Thus, women’s tennis is constantly scanning the horizon for new characters, such as the 23-year-old Russian “Baby Face”. Daria Ksatkina, Already number 10 in the world in 2018, which recently relaunched heavily in Ivan Lyubisic School, LJ Sports Group, the only one on the ring to win two titles in the first three months of the year.
Like her, the 18-year-old left-handed girl lit up last week Leila Fernandez. Born in Canada to an Ecuadorian father and Canadian mother of Filipino ancestry, she trains in Florida: a combination that promises explosions that are important but not like a dream, as with other great competition at the top, if not legendary like Evert-Navratilova, at least reliable and lasts.
Hence the Miami tournament with 16 of the world’s top 17 – number 7 only, Serena Williams missing – provides the women’s opportunity to shed light as five of the top ten in the men’s circuit instead surrender to No.1 Djokovic, 3 Nadal, 4 TIM and 6 Federer and 10 Britini.
