Glad to hear you're doing a book for Mr. Rosewall. I had the pleasure back in the 90s to drive him around when he was here for a legends event- doesn't talk much, but was very nice. I think there are several Aussie women who were so overshadowed by Madge and Evonne that deserve more than a passing mention. Thanks again for the wonderful pics!
Alfa ... well as 52yo with two inflamed fingers on my playing hand I definately am more of a pusher these days. It hurts my hand to hit hard these days. I normally drive a double hander backhand ala Evert but only use the Durr single hander for pokes and lobs. Plus I didn't want to hit too hard playing against a 70yo woman

No I am not doing a book for Ken, but I am going to his book launch and to celebrate his 78th Birthday which should be great. Here is a link which includes a great video tribute to him:
