Re: Serve and Volley-40's tennis

I got to see Margreat O du Pont play doubles at the East Coast Grass Court Championships, in Orange New Jersey, in the early sixties. She was still a great doubles player and had a great second serve. She put so much spin on the ball that there was sort of a swishing sound when the racket hit the ball. I lived nearby the club and got to see several tope players of that era: BJK, Karen Susman, Margreat Smith, Eda Buding among others. That was an important tune up for Forest Hills back then.
