Judy Tegart Dalton

Just looking for observations about Judy. She was a tremendous doubles player by her record. She was probably a player ranked in the teens and twenties for a decade until the late 60's when she made a Wimbledon final and became a top ten player for awhile. Her resume looks some like Betty Stove. Did she play like Betty - big woman with big game?

Re: Judy Tegart Dalton

This thread just reminded me that Judy emailed me the other day and she wants to sell some of her original Teddy Tinling dresses if anyone is interested in purchasing some. Please send me a message and I can liaise with Judy on this. I already have one of Judy's in my collection so I don't need any more. But the offer is there for other fans...

Re: Judy Tegart Dalton

She was a late bloomer. She did not reach the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam singles tournament outside Australia until she was 29 years old. From Wimbledon in 1967 until the end of her career, she reached at least the quarterfinals in half of the Grand Slam singles tournaments she played (ten out of twenty). She reached at least the quarterfinals 15 times out of 45 career Grand Slam singles tournaments. She won 6 of 7 Federation Cup singles matches. Dalton was one of the original "Virginia Slims 9," the nine players who in 1971 joined the break-away Virginia Slims tour organized by Gladys Heldman.

In 1970, she completed a Career Grand Slam in women's doubles. She won four Australian women's doubles titles and one mixed doubles title. She won one French Championships and one Wimbledon women's doubles title. She won two US Open women's doubles titles. Five of her 8 Grand Slam women's doubles titles were with Margaret Court, two with Lesley Turner Bowrey, and one with Rosemary Casals. Her mixed doubles title was with Tony Roche.

That was my first thought too AR. By all accounts she was quite a lively character and fun to be around tour with. Does anyone know how she got the nickname of "Old Fruit"?

If I have time I'll post a funny account of Judy playing a mixed doubles final at the US Open one year.


There must have been a myriad of memories over her long career, but two that would stand out would be reaching the final of Wimbledon in 1968 and winning the German Open in 1969.

Re: Judy Tegart Dalton

She was always knocking about there during the early/mid-sixties but just couldn't make that final push to break into the top 10.

She was pretty unlucky at Wimbledon in 1966 when she ran into Maria Bueno in the last 16 and pushed her to 6-3 4-6 6-2. Maria had to really dig deep before bringing out her best tennis in the final set.

She really should have been the #8 seed at Forest Hills that year instead of Donna Fales but missed a big opportunity of reaching the semi-finals and perhaps breaking into the top 10 when she lost in 3 sets to Kerry Melville and finished around #11 or 12.

Perhaps the retirement of Margaret Smith gave some of the Aussie girls new heart for she snuck into the top 10 for the first time in 1967 and then she had her best year in 1968.

Although Billie-Jean definitely had the edge on her in the 1968 Wimbledon final she pushed her all the way at 9-7 7-5 and perhaps she has some regret about her quarter with BJ there in 1969. If the tennis wasn't exactly the greatest quality it was a really exciting match as the crowd were right behind her as she succumbed 4-6 7-5 8-6 twice being within 2 points of victory.

I firmly believe that but for the lucky shot of BJ's at 4-5 15-15 in the second set of her semi with Ann Jones at Wimbledon in 1968 Judy would have been champion that year.
