Re: Who is the oldest living female tennis great?

Doris Hart, b. 20 June 1925, is 88 years young today. Doris, Margaret Court and Martina Navratilova are the only players, male or female, to have won the singles, doubles and mixed doubles titles at all four majors. Like other players of her era, Doris's achievements were somewhat overshadowed by the success of Maureen Connnoly in the years 1951-54.

I live about 8k from her (or at least where she lived when she turned 100) and haven't heard/read anything in the news since then. She'd be one of the oldest living people in the capital, so that would be news-worthy, even without her sporting credentials.

Tried to look her up in the phone-book and she's not listed, but that doesn't mean much. She's also not listed in the local cemetery/graveyard search, so here's hoping..

Zummi Margaret du Pont lives in El Paso on her ranch. She loves horses. She used to raise thoroughbred racehorses with her second doubles partner, Margaret Varner Bloss. Not sure if she still does that.

Ryan Dodo sounds like an amazing person. They should have her at the Aussie Open next year, or whichever one she won before.

Rollo DH-I like your idea of bringing these women to the slams they won. A 40th,50th, or 60th year anniversary would be great. Fans could really have fun with it by having them autograph memorabilia and the like, show clips of the "oldies" and put up pictures.

disposablehero Yes, Rollo, I actually pulled my list of names from the Hall Of Fame site, but Louise Brough slipped by me.
