Re: Little Mo. Big Al and 50s tennis
In studying the 50s results (and 60s also to a point), it is amazing the number of Australian and South African players who showed great promise and even gained top ten rankings who left the game early (Penrose, Coghlan, Staley Hoad, Carr, Price, Kilian Shaw, Schuurman, Ebbern to name a few). It seems as though world travel must have been so long and difficult for those from Down Under. Many of these seemed to have chosen family life over tennis.
