New Chris Evert Documentary Unmatched Will Premiere Next Week
There has never been an individual sports rivalry like the one between Chris Evert, from Fort Lauderdale, and Martina Navratilova. Ali and Frasier fought three times. Borg and McEnroe played 14 times. Evert and Navratilova played 80 times, including 60 tournament finals and 14 grand slam finals.
Next Tuesday, ESPN will debut a documentary chronicling the 16-year rivalry and the subsequent friendship. As Evert -- for whom the Children's Hospital at Broward General is named -- says in the trailer for Unmatched, "It's just so rare that we were able to maintain that respect and closeness and friendship despite the fact that we were trying to beat each other's brains out."
