ENTERTAINMENT RESOURCES COMMUNITY 80's GEAR




The main figures in tennis during the 1980s brought a much-needed charge to the tennis world. Bad boys Jimmy Connors and John "That ball was on the line" McEnroe insured media attention almost anytime they took the court. Women's tennis was dominated by the wiry Martina Navratilova and perky Chris Evert Lloyd. Ivan Lendl and Steffi Graf stepped in during the latter half of the decade to electrify spectators. Below are the winners of Wimbeldon, the U.S. Open, and the Davis Cup by year.
