Virginia Wade married to John Barrett.

Is that right? I rembered him saying his wife, a former Wimbledon English winner, was in the crowd at Wimbledon when he was commentating. I know Anne Jones is married to someone lse, so i's not her. I can't remember the name of who he said though, but I'm quite certain it was Wade. Can someone clarify?

Mortimer and Truman were two of the shining stars of English tennis back in the late 50s and early 60s. Mortimer was a baseliner and Truman more an all court attacking style of player. In their 61 Wimbledon Final Christine suffered a heavy fall which may have affected the outcome ... who knows.

As for Wade, people in the inner circles know things. I have a number of friends who have played on the tour back in the 70s so I know a reasonable amount about the oldies.

Oh thank god. I saw the thread title and was all because I always thought Wade was a lesbian.... I mean... so clearly a lesbian that I barely gave it a thought. Then I saw this and thought -- How could I have been so wrong.

ANgela won the 1955 French and the 1958 Australian before winning the 1961Wimbledon with illness falling over Maria Bueno as well as Darlene Hard who get infected with hepatitis while taking of her because no one would pay for Maria's medical bills because they were amateurs.
