Recently saw some film of Lesley. What a mover! she just naturally appears to glide on clay courts like she is ice skating.
Renee does like a bit like a mini Margaret in that pic.

Oh I love watching footage of Turner on clay. She was a beautiful ground-stroker and as you rightly mention Rollo, the girl knew how to glide on the surface.

I think I have a RG QF with Turner beating King (as well as a few others) but it is her consistency and court speed which won her that match.
