EVERT TO HALL OF FAME; SOUNDS OFF ON THE STATE OF THE GAME
Published January 25, 1995
CHRIS EVERT, who will be inducted into the Int'l Tennis Hall of Fame in July, "doubts any of today's top pros will stay with the game" as long as she and her contemporaries did: "Nowadays, you're grinding it out every match....I'll give Steffi (Graf) another two years and she'll be out of the game. If she takes a break, maybe she would come back, but she's been carrying the load for women's tennis." Evert says the women's game "is in a lull....They need to have rivalries and they need to have Monica (Seles) and Jennifer (Capriati) back" (Doug Smith, USA TODAY, 1/25).
