Chris Evert to be inducted into Canada’s Tennis Hall of Fame.

Chris Evert is headed into the Rogers Cup Hall of Fame.

The three-time Rogers Cup champion will be inducted in a ceremony Aug. 16 during the evening session of this year’s women’s event at Uniprix Stadium.

“Chris Evert is one of the greatest players of all time, a legend of the game who has become a significant part of tennis history as well as the history of the Rogers Cup,” tournament director Eugene Lapierre said in a release. “She remains one of the most popular and recognizable faces in women’s tennis and we are thrilled to be inducting her into our Hall of Fame.”

Evert was a Rogers Cup finalist twice and also reached the semifinals twice. Her championship run in 1974 in Montreal was also her first Rogers Cup appearance.

Evert won 154 WTA Tour singles titles, and her 18 Grand Slam singles triumphs tie her with Martina Navratilova for fourth all-time.

Chris Evert’s annual Pro-Celebrity event will take place again this year at the Delray Beach Tennis Center and the Boca Raton Resort & Club from November 6th to 8th.

Since it began in 1989, shortly after Evert retired, the event has raised nearly $18 million that has been used to campaign against drug abuse and child neglect in Florida.

As well as pro-celebrity tennis, the event includes a cocktail party, the chance to play against Evert and others, and a pro-celebrity gala. Among those taking part this year are actress Elisabeth Shue, singer Natalie Cole, and retired players Lindsay Davenport, Monica Seles and Justin Gimelstob.
