Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The darling of U.S. tennis fans from her first appearance in the big time at age 16 in 1971, Chris Evert ruled the women's tennis game throughout the '70s, a relentless machine determined to win. By contrast, Britisher John Lloyd is an enormously gifted athlete who is lackadaisical about his game and quickly becomes discouraged; he has never ranked higher than 24th in the world. After the breakup of her engagement to Jimmy Connors, Evert married Lloyd. Because of their vastly different temperaments, their marriage has been rocky and involved a lengthy separation, then a reconciliation. Thatcher, the prime minister's daugher, is clearly more interested in the couple's romance than in tennis, and she approaches their story like a fan magazine feature-cum-soap operaboy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy wins girl.

From Library Journal

After reading this book it is obvious that Chris Lloyd is a great athlete and a remarkable woman. The book chronicles the Lloyds' 12 years on the world tennis circuit and demystifies their glamorous world by describing the tensions that surround their two-career tennis marriage. The Lloyds have overcome many problems caused by the demands of international travel, rigorous training, scrutiny by the press, and expectations of winning. Thatcher tactfully handles individual reflections on their separation in 1984 and the reconciliation six months later. Libraries owning Chrissie: my own story ( LJ 8/82) should buy this too, and libraries not owning it should purchase both. Dennis J.

Through all her trials and tribulation chris has always emerged as winner. One quote which sums up chris evert career Wimbledon quote "IF YOU CAN FACE TRIUMP AND DISASTER AND TREAT THOSE TWO IMPOSTERS JUST THE SAME THEN YOU ARE A CHAMPION" chris evert face should be engraved in these words.... Thanks, Chris for the Memories
