Chris Evert worked hard to earn her three Rosewater Dishes as singles champion at Wimbledon, and now she is letting everybody know that she works hard to maintain the trophies.

The career Grand Slam winner also mentioned that she was thankful to not have as many platters as nine-time Wimbledon champ Martina Navratilova, who won five of her titles at the grass court major by defeating Evert in the final. The fellow tennis great had a wonderful response ready following the joke.

The timing of this tweet does beg one question though: Does Evert use her trophies as serving platters for Thanksgiving? Considering she has 18 major titles to her name she likely has enough.
