Monique Javer won Singapore in April 1988, beating Leila Meshki in the final. She'd only been cleared to play for Britain a short time before. In July 1988 Sara Gomer defeated Ann Grossman, Stephanie Rehe (who was in the Top Ten not too much later) and then Robin White to win the title in Aptos, California.

In 1990 Jo Durie had two match points when 5-2 up in the final set against Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario in the Newport final -but lost!!!

In the Open era, Winnie Shaw (later Wooldridge) from Glasgow reached two straight Australian Open semi-finals in the early seventies, (in admittedly not the strongest of fields). She also won the Brisbane tournament in November 1969, beating Karen Krantzcke in the final, and won three minor tour events in 1972: the Scandinavian Open, the Kenyan Open and the Rothmans Sutton hardcourt event in Britain.

Joyce Williams was from Dundee. She won the German Indoor title in 1968, defeating Helga Masthoff in the final. She won the Scandinavian Champs in 1970, and beat Evonne Goolagong in two British event finals, at Stalybridge and Poole. She pulled off a fantastic rare win over the great Margaret Court in the semis of the Hurlingham tour event before losing a close final to reigning Wimbledon Champion Ann Jones. She was a US Open quarter-finalist in 1971.

OK -all this was before the WTA was formed in 1973, but it was in the Open era and these were all main tour events!!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Lewis_(tennis_player)

Chris Lewis (tennis player)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Chris Lewis (born March 3, 1957 in Auckland), is a former professional tennis player who was 1983 Wimbledon finalist as an unseeded player.

A world no. 1 junior player in 1975, the 5'11, 155lbs. Lewis won 3 career singles titles with a career high ranking of World No. 19. His career singles tour record was 242 wins against 204 losses. He also won 8 doubles titles during his 12 years on the tour.

In reaching the '83 Wimbledon finals, with a five-set win over Kevin Curren in the semi-finals, Lewis became only the seventh unseeded man to accomplish the feat and only the second New Zealander after Tony Wilding in 1914. He lost the final to John McEnroe, 6-2 6-2 6-2.

He reached the finals at the Cincinnati Masters in 1981, falling 6-3, 6-4 to John McEnroe.

Known for his extreme fitness during his career, Lewis even played a few minor professional Futures events (for lower ranked players) between 2000 and 2002, when he was well into his forties.

Belinda Cordwell won Singapore in 1989, singles and doubles. That was the year she reached the Semi-Finals of the Australian Open. She finished that year as world No.18.

Tony Wilding was New Zealand's best ever male player.He won four consecutive Wimbledon titles, from 1910-13, but was sadly killed during World War One.
