Does anyone here know who was the last British woman to win a singles match on Centre Court at Wimbledon? Did Samantha Smith win a match there when she made the 4th rd back in 98? Or do I have to go all the way back to Jo Durie defeating Steffi Graf back in 84?

Anyone know? :confused:

The last one I can remember is again Jo Durie, but the following year: she defeated Claudia Kohde-Kilsch, the No.5 seed, on Centre Court in the second round of the 1895 Championships.

I really thought Baltacha won a match on centre a few years ago?

No, Baltacha has lost twice on Centre Court. Once to Capriati last year in straight sets and another time in 2001 or 2002 when she was put on there as a filler match late in the day. She lost that one too but I can't remember to who right now.
