It was Ginny Wade. She was the very first Slam winner I can remember I’ll tell you why, because there’s a fascinating story as to why I can remember Ginny winning the Wimbledon title.
I was quite young at the time, and I hadn’t been very well, so my mother Ethel phoned for the doctor. When the doctor arrived the final had just begun. The doctor came in and asked “Is he breast fed or bottle fed?” “Breast fed” was the reply.
Okay then "Strip down to your waist," the doctor ordered.
As the doctor examined her breasts. He squeezed and pulled each one for a while and then he sucked hard on each nipple. Finally he remarked, "No wonder this child is suffering from malnutrition. You don't have any milk!"
"That's right," said the woman. "This is my sister's child. I’m his aunty Ida"
That’s how I remember it so well, because shortly after social services arrived and I was taken into welfare for a short period. I think it was due to the fact that my aunty Ida was a transsexual.
