Chris Evert and Pam Shriver, who are both rather active on Twitter, were involved in a fun yet heart-warming exchange on the social media platform.

A Twitter user wrote about the latter's victory at the 1987 Canadian Open, where she beat Evert 6-4, 6-1 in the semifinals.

Shriver replied to the tweet by pointing out that the victory ended Evert's 17-match winning streak against herself.

"This tournament ended a 0-17 head to head vs @ChrissieEvert," Shriver wrote.

Evert retweeted Shriver's tweet with a series of emojis and the latter replied to it by saying that she still had the note the 18-time Grand Slam champion left for her at the hotel ahead of the final against Zina Garrison.

"Happy Anniversary pal! I still have the note you left me at hotel wishing me luck in the finals!" Shriver wrote.

However, Shriver won the last two matches between the pair, beating Evert 6-4, 4-6, 6-0 in the final of the 1987 Virginia Slims of New England.

Chris Evert was diagnosed with stage 1 ovarian cancer in January of this year. The 18-time Grand Slam champion completed her sixth and final chemotherapy session in May.

The 67-year-old made an appearance on Centre Court, along with other Wimbledon champions, during the court's centenary celebrations in July.

Evert recently tweeted about the women's singles draw for the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati that will see Serena Williams and Emma Raducanu lock horns in the opening round.

"This draw," she wrote
