Chris Evert’s ex-husband John Lloyd has said that the former World No.1 doesn’t want Iga Swiatek to break her record for the most number of French Open titles
Evert has won the singles event at the clay court Major more than any other woman, with seven titles to her name. Iga Swiatek won her third title recently at Roland Garros after defeating Karolina Muchova 6-2, 5-7, 6-4 in the final.
The Pole has already equaled the French Open tallies of the likes of Serena Williams and Monica Seles, and is four tournament wins behind Chris Evert’s record.
The American’s former husband John Lloyd, who won the mixed doubles title at the clay-court Major in 1982, said that she did not want Iga Swiatek to break her record.
Speaking on the Tennis Channel’s Inside-In podcast, the 68-year-old said that Evert wouldn’t be telling the truth if she said she hoped the Pole surpassed her French Open tally as nobody wanted their records to be broken.
“If you hear Chrissie say that she hopes that Iga will break that record, she is not telling the truth. She doesn’t want her to break that record, I promise you. She is a lovely lady but no one wants their records broken. They say they do, they’re not telling the full truth,” Lloyd said.
