When Chris Evert wasn’t calling matches for ESPN during last year’s US Open, she was on screen pitching sub sandwiches for Jersey Mike’s. 

For the United States Tennis Association’s charitable foundation, there’s tremendous value in each of their chairperson’s contributions.

Evert won 18 Grand Slam titles between 1974 and 1986, including six out of eight US Opens between 1974 and 1982.  

Last year, she helped raise more than $2 million for the USTA Foundation and its National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) chapters.
