John Lloyd, the British husband of Chris Evert Lloyd, announced his retirement from singles play after losing here Tuesday to Christo Steyn of South Africa. The scores were 3-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-3, 6-1. "I think now is the time to retire," Lloyd said. "I find it very difficult to get charged up. It's no big drama. I just don't enjoy it out on the court." Lloyd was ranked as high as No. 24 in singles before marrying Evert in 1979 and fell to No. 356 by 1980.

John Lloyd is in the twilight of a mediocre tennis career playing for a struggling team in a league that has a tendency to come and go. In 16 years of professional tennis, Lloyd was never ranked higher than 23rd in singles, and that was back in 1978. If he hadn't been married for nearly eight years to Chris Evert, few outside of England, where he is a golden-boy idol, or Wendy Turnbull, with whom he twice won the Wimbledon mixed doubles title, would have heard of him.

John Lloyd feels the Los Angeles Strings have a good chance to win the World TeamTennis championship this season. The Strings' player-coach has the same nucleus as last year, when a rookie named Jimmy Connors led the team to the championship game, only to lose to the Atlanta Thunder with Martina Navratilova. "I think our team is definitely as strong as last year, if not better," said Lloyd, whose team opens its 1992 season at 7 tonight in the Forum against the San Antonio Racquets.
