Re: Lesley Turner
[QUOTE=iainmac;15623698]This has been another great read and really fascinating stuff. Turner sure was one of the greats of the 1960s. And her record on clay is fantastic. I always assumed that Jones was the second best player of that era on clay, but I view that differently now. Fantastic record. And a great doubles record as Tennisvideos reminded us on the Margaret Court thread.[QUOTE]
There was a thread at one stage where we were ranking the top 10 of the decades by surface but I can't find it now.
I also ranked the top 3 as Court, Turner, Jones although it was close between Turner and Jones since Ann had a better second half to the decade. I went with Lesley because from 1962-1965 she was practically Maragret Smith's equal at RG and beat Ann there both in 1962 and 1963.
As for doubles Margaret plus our 70-year old neighbour would have been a world class doubles team.
Margaret Thatcher - Michele Bachmann two strong women of our time.
