Judith Anne Marshall 'Judy' TEGART (VIC)

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".

"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."
