Before reading on the BFTP, I knew or actually cared little about Jan Lehane. However, my interest has grown as she's garnered quite a bit of discussion in the forum. I'm interested in putting together tidbits on her life and career. I know she is Australian and was born in 1941. As a junior, she seemed to have been on par with the great Margaret Smith defeating her in the 1959 Australian junior final. She spent most of her first 5 years in the world's top ten, yet failed to make it past a Slam quarterfinal. She was runner-up four times to Smith at the Australian, each time getting beaten worse. Crowds gathered to watch her play, because she played with a two-handed backhand. What a novelty! Please post any other info on this good, yet not great player.
