Known In The '70s For: Being the top-ranked female tennis player from 1974-1981

Chris Evert was 16 when she made her debut at the U.S. Open in 1971. She won her first majors (the French Open and Wimbledon) in 1974, and was the top ranked women's tennis player from 1974 until the end of the decade. But dominating on the court was just part of the picture/ Evert had been picked to endorse Calvin Klein sportswear before she won her first Grand Slam, and her romance with Jimmy Connors was the tennis equivalent of Brangelina.
