Judith Anne Marshall 'Judy' TEGART (VIC)
Born 12 December 1937
Married Dr David E DALTON on 18 November 1969

"Slightly above middle-height and strong in figure, she played in a get-up-and-go manner. An Australian stylist, she used her strong wrist freely, and in a woman that looked adventurous and often exhilarating if she were trailing against a world star and refused to be cowed in the least. She was a great favourite at Wimbledon".

Agnes I TOSH (NSW)
Born 1909
Married Leslie N TURNER 1935

Mother of Grand Slam champion Lesley Turner (Bowrey).

Octogenarian Agnes Turner likes a challenge - she has run the Sydney City to Surf for the
past nine years and is currently competing against women almost 20 years
her junior in the Australasian Veterans tennis championship being held at nine
clubs throughout Melbourne.

Mrs Turner, 82, has been competing in the veterans' championship for the past 11 years
and as a 71-year-old, won the 65 and over age group.

In 1934, Mrs Turner, the mother of former French and Australian Open
champion Lesley Bowrey, won the NSW Hardcourt Championships.

"Lesley has come along a few times to watch me, but no, she doesn't give
me any tips. I'm a bit past that," said Mrs Turner in between matches
yesterday at the Hawthorn Recreation Club.

Mrs Turner said she first took on the City to Surf challenge when
pressed by two grandsons to run with them.

"I keep getting trophies for the oldest woman in the race," she said.
Her best time for the event is 117 minutes - last year she covered the
14km is 119 minutes.

In addition to her two Grand Slam singles victories at the French Open, Lesley won seven Grand Slam doubles titles, including the 'career slam' as well as Australian (2) and Wimbledon (2) mixed doubles championships.

"A model stylist. Her service was accurate, her volleying neat, her forehand a strong and orthodox Eastern, and her backhand sounder still. Fair-haired and blue-eyed, slender and light on her feet, she did not lack crowd support when she encountered any stronger looking opponent. Turner's well produced driving and her fighting qualities were both surprisingly strong."
