Oldest of the greats?

As far as I can tell, right now its Brough then Hart. Have I missed someone? It would be nice if we saw more of them.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Pauline Betz is still kicking, as is Margaret DuPont. Both born in the late 1910s I think. Louise is a few years younger.

Re: Oldest of the greats?

It depends on how you define "great." Dorothy Bundy Cheney is 94. Nelly Adamson Landry was a close second until her death in February of this year.

Dodo probably is the oldest living woman with a grand slam singles title. What a troper! Does anyone know if she still plays the seniors?

I don't think Dodo ever won a singles slam. M. du Pont was born in 1918, which makes her 92 or very close.

Cheney won the 1938 Australian Championships.
