Evert Era

THE EVERT ERA is a half-hour special chronicling the tennis family that gave us one of the most popular, accomplished stars of all time: Chris Evert. From her father Jimmy's early success in the game and career as a top coach, through the introduction of Chris' amazing career and the outstanding tennis achievements of every member of the family, to the top-notch tennis academy run by the Everts today, the program gives viewers an inside look at tennis' own version of a royal dynasty. In addition to Chris and her family, the show interviews legend and contemporary Billie Jean King, tennis historian Bud Collins and sportswriter Steve Flink, among others.
