Their wedding that was scheduled for November of that year never happened, and their relationship ended. But now, 35 years later, Connors is releasing a biography this week titled The Outsider, in which he strongly hints that during their whirlwind affair in 1974, Evert got pregnant and had an abortion.
And it is normally around some kind of commentary that she makes news these days, but mainly only within the tennis-watching community.
But Jimmy Connors, a former romantic partner and himself a retired successful U. tennis player, has thrust Evert into the national spotlight recently against her will.
Pauley sent over her boyfriend to ask the couple to leave when Pauley's ex pulls out a camera and starts taking photos. When he went to the police station to file a police report against the new boyfriend it turned out the ex was arrested instead because of a warrant from the last time he messed with Pauley. Pauley is the best part of that show so I hope she stays.
In 1974, while dating, Evert and Connors both won their respective singles championship at Wimbledon.
As Sports Illustrated reported at the time, "For the first time in memory, the traditional opening dance at Saturday night's Wimbledon Ball was reserved for two singles champions who were sweethearts as well—Chris Evert, 19, and her mop-topped fiance, Jimmy Connors, 21." In typical sports-pun fashion, they were dubbed the "Love Double" and "Love Match" by tabloids.
Chris Evert is one of the most successful female stars in the history of United States tennis. Beginning in 1974, she finished ranked #1 in the world seven times (the only year between 19 when she dipped was in 1979).
She won 18 Grand Slam championships, including seven French Open titles (a feat only matched by male tennis player Rafael Nadal last year) and six U. In 1976, she was the first solo woman to ever be chosen "Sportswoman of the Year" by Sports Illustrated.
Overall, her career winning percentage was just over 90 percent, an almost impossible record that has never beaten by any other player, male or female.
She now runs a tennis academy in Florida and is a commentator for ESPN for the four tennis grand slam championships.
