#4 Chris Evert
From the mid-1970s all through the 1980s, women's tennis was dominated by two of the greatest athletes - Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert. The American duo won 18 Grand Slam titles each and their rivalry is among the most famous sporting rivalries of all-time.
Chris Evert Lloyd - without a doubt the greatest clay-court player that the women's game has ever seen was the first player to be ranked WTA World Number 1 when the rankings were first introduced in 1975.
Chris Evert had 9 spells as the World Number 1 - more than any of the 24 other players who rose to the summit of the rankings. Her longest stay at the top came from May 10th, 1976 to July 9th, 1978 - a total of 113 consecutive weeks.Published 15 Dec 2018, 16:57 IST
