    1987 Chris Evert Wimbledon Match Used Racquet from The Judy Nelson Collection. Every superstar needs that one person to push them. Magic had Bird, Wilt had Russell and Brady had Manning. Women's tennis had an over-the-top matchup each time Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova were on opposite ends of the court. During her extensive career, Evert appeared in thirty-four Grand Slam finals - a record to this day. Evert used this Wilson Pro Staff racquet when she took on the competition in the 1987 Wimbledon tournament. Five broken strings are visible.

    We did find a photo on Getty Images (86042794) which provides us a style match. Following its career with Evert, the racquet this was gifted to Martina Navratilova's lover Judy Nelson where it has remained until now. A glass case is included. "Chris Evert Wimbledon 1987" is engraved to a placard on the inside of the display (16.25x34.5"). Letter of provenance from Judy Nelson.
