Re: Lesley Turner
Didnt Turner lose a French Open once to Court after having Championship point. What a gut wrenching loss that must have been for her, especialy how much an additional slam means to players careers with relatively small number of them.
She did lose to Court after holding a match point in the final. And she also lost another to Durr in 67 after leading 4-2 in the final set.
Lesley was an awesome clay court player.
Last night I got an invitation to play in a Legends event in Sydney in November and who is in the player list? None other than Lesley Turner herself along with other legends like Ken Rosewall, Judy Tegart (Dalton), and about 8 others. I am so excited as I got to play against Rosewall late last year in a similar event and it was one of the greatest days of my life.
I pray I get to play against Lesley and Ken again!
