Chris Evert – a symbol of the era

A tennis bracelet is a classic piece of jewelry. Usually they are made of white gold or platinum and encrusted with even, identical diamonds. The bracelet fits tightly on the wrist and holds well on the hand, therefore it is popular among athletes.

The name of the decoration was given by the American Chris Evert. Before the US Open-1987, they were called differently, but then Evert asked the referee to stop the match because her bracelet was unfastened and was lost during the rally. In a conversation with the referee and the subsequent discussion, she christened him a “tennis bracelet”. The designation is fixed.

Another, more specialized, element of Evert’s legacy is the hashtag #shitchrissiesays (the nonsense Chrissy bears) that scattered in the early 2010s. The American then just started commenting and was famous for poor preparation for reports and opinions that were based on facts from parallel realities. Among the main memes: the backhand is the best blow of Stosur, Svitolina is the power tennis player of the Mugurusi plan, and Bouchard will crush Kvitova Continue reading

Gabriera Sabatini – beauty, champion, successful business woman

The famous Argentine tennis player and business woman, Gabriela Beatriz Sabatini (Gabriela Beatriz Sabatini) was born May 16, 1970 in Buenos Aires. Her 5-year-old brother Osvaldo Anibal was engaged in tennis and it was he who brought the 6-year-old future celebrity to the tennis court.

At age 13, Gaby became the youngest tennis player to win the Orange Bowl World Junior Championships in Miami, and at age 14 she led the world ranking by her age. In 1985, she turned into a professional and became the youngest semi-finalist of Roland Garros (lost to Chris Evert 4: 6; 1: 6). In the same year, she won her first championship in Tokyo. The following year, at Wimbledon, Gabriela reached the semifinals, setting another “youth record”, after which she entered the world top ten, which she did not leave until the end of her professional career (the best rating was No. 3 in 1989 and 1991). At the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, she won silver in singles, losing to Continue reading

René Lacoste

Rene was born in Paris on July 2, 1904 in the family of the industrialist Jean Lacoste, the owner of a network of factories producing cars “Spanish-Suiza” (La Нispano-Suiza Automobiles). Being not quite a healthy child – he was pestering chronic bronchitis, Rene became interested in tennis.
One day, in 1910, they invited the French journalist Pierre Albarran, a major tennis authority, to the Club de sport, located on Saussure Street in Paris, and showed a thin, pale boy. He held the racket in the middle of the handle, ran around the court like a hare, and hit the balls with the accuracy of a metronome. The guy made an impression on the “examination committee.” Albarran recalls that everyone was of the same opinion: this young man had a good future, but no one had the idea that at 21, Lacoste would be the first racket of the world.

What an amazing path he has come! What will and perseverance this young man showed in exhausting training, to whom his father recommended leaving the sport at the age of fifteen, believing that his son is completely lacking in abilities! At twenty, Lacoste became a real athlete, able to train for three hours in the morning, and fight for another three hours in the afternoon (at that time it was unusual), reminding with his game a perfectly adjusted, non-interruption mechanism.
