    Chrissy looked very tense. I wonder if she felt uncomfortable and out of place being the one player who didn’t have tons of doubles titles? or net prowess to her credit.

    hey thanks for posting this! Was not aware this doubles match? was ever played, BJK bit past her prime but those volleys wow! Chris holds her own here well and truly. Great display from all 4.

    This is very entertaining doubles!! Never nowadays would you see all four players at net at? the same time lol. Thank you for uploading this:)

    And I agree with the other comments -? a real shame we don’t see doubles played this way anymore.

    Even in her 40s BJK demonstrates the tactics and cunning that made her? one of the best doubles players ever (along with Margaret Court, Martina Navratilova and Pammy Shriver). Chris Evert also demonstrates a lot of cunning – pity she didn’t play more doubles, I am sure she could have added to her two French Open and Wimbledon doubles titles.

    I was going to go to that match- I live in Va Beach- went to ODU in Norfolk…my best friend’s father died- the funeral? was that day….

  9. MrPernell27 on February 18th, 2013 4:01 pm

    Great video. Is it possible to get the rughts to use it? in a production??

  14. twilliger123 on February 18th, 2013 4:01 pm

    Not in the? 80′s, that crap didn’t start until later!

    This was a very interesting exhibition because it really does display something about Chris Evert that she rarely ever got to display. Her ability? to volley and her quality as an all around player. It totally dispells the view that she was weak in any aspect of tennis. Here she played a variety of shots and accuracy.Remember, she is playing with the best doubles players in women’s tennis and a casual observer would not be able to see who the weakest player was.

  16. Mackenzie73 on February 18th, 2013 4:01 pm

    thank you! ? :-)

  17. kmo67 on February 18th, 2013 4:01 pm

    Since? this was an exhibition for charity, the terms of the match were that the ladies would play three full sets regardless of the final score, so theoretically, one team could have won three straight sets, or in this case, the losing team could take the final set. The event organizers arranged this to make sure the audience got the most entertainment value (a competitive three-set contest) for their money.

    Why no touch hands, which all too prevalent at? the time?

  19. 1969Mrtnz on February 18th, 2013 4:01 pm

    Hahahaha! I agree with you, MacKenzie. What’s happen in that court? Please, I want to understand this: Martina & Billie Jean won first two sets. OK. Wait a second, maybe I understand now. Nevertheless, the four girls have to play three sets. That’s it? I never saw this situation before. These girls are an unbelievable? tennis players. This is one of the greatest moments of tennis.”Sully03362″, thank you for uploading this video. Greetings from Brazil.

    Sensational tennis; the way? it should be played! Thanks so much for posting! :-)

  21. bqndc on February 18th, 2013 4:01 pm

    I can’t imagine any of the top WTA players today playing doubles at the net. ? :-(

  22. niev300 on February 18th, 2013 4:01 pm

    All hall? of famers

  23. MikeyMacky on February 18th, 2013 4:01 pm

    Now this is how? lezbos play tennis!

  24. jac7124 on February 18th, 2013 4:01 pm

    You have to give Evert a lot of credit playing with three natural serve and volleyers here – she did great! Her doubles play is definitely? underrated.
    Thanks for posting!

  25. Mackenzie73 on February 18th, 2013 4:01 pm
