"You're attempting to insult the greatest tennis player of all time. No shame" - Evert receives criticism after comparing Djokovic rivalry to battles with Navratilova

Chris Evert faced backlash on social media when she pointed out something about her and Navratilova's rivalry.

Djokovic recently spoke about his career and rivalries at the Tel Aviv Open saying:

"Everyone is my rival, whoever I step out on the court against. But when it comes to who is my biggest rival, then it’s Nadal without a doubt. He is still there. We played more matches against each other than any other rivalry in the history of tennis. And I hope that we will play many more times, it’s exciting for us and for tennis."

One part of this statement is not factually true as Navratilova and Evert played the most matches against each other and that got her hate on social media. Djokovic fans dragged her across the board and we bring some reactions below:

"These oldies think they're anywhere close to Djokovic when it comes to their place in tennis history. You're attempting to insult the greatest tennis player of all time. No shame"

"This thing women athletes do these days with inserting themselves into men's sport is just damn annoying. Thats how they got on Graeme's back when he was talking about MEN'S football, and now these ones are getting on Novak's back when he's talking about MEN'S tennis."

"Oop ... when did Martina and Chris played on ATP tour.. Novak was asked about his rivals in players today and he mentioned only Nadal is is his main rival and others are just rivals . Nothing to do with WTA. Chris could be a bit lack of ..... and need to find the roots of it."
