Re: Lesley Turner
I had read that Ken still plays tennis. So glad to hear that after his near stroke last year. How are his shots? He is still my all-time favorite male player. He will be 78 this November. God bless him!
Oh Rosewall is my all time favourite male player as well. He still hits glorious shots but of course doesn't have the bite they had back in the day. But it's still effortless and razor like esp the backhand which is beautifully produced.
Playing against him late last year on the clay at Kooyong was probably one of the greatest thrills of my life.
I would love to have a mixed against Lesley. I have only ever played against Frankie Durr and Gail Chanfreau on the womens side so that would be a real buzz for me as I love Lesley's baseline game. She was playing competition against the top women in Sydney up until a few years ago so I imagine she is still playing a nice game.
