Chris Evert sits and talks

Not much of an action shot, it's true, but here it is anyway: Tennis legend Chris Evert sits in a folding chair and talks into a microphone at Madison Square Park during an appearance for the credit card company American Express. (Hence the AmEx logos on the wall behind her.) This happened in New York City on September 6, 2006, during the US Open tennis tournament. (Hence the US Open logos on the wall behind her.) Chris Evert won the US Open a remarkable six times: in 1976, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1980, and 1982. She was born in 1954, so she turned 52 the year this photo was taken.
