Althea Gibson was one of the greatest female tennis players of all time. Unfortunately, she had to make a living, and in the 1950s, if you didn't have money, your only option was to turn professional and go on a rigorous tour to support yourself, and thus you were barred from playing in the majors. Her tour wasn't successful, and she ended up trying her hand (moderately successfully) at golf.
It's a shame she couldn't stay amateur, because I think she would have taken quite a few majors away from Maria Bueno and Margaret Smith (Court) in the early 1960s. She had a huge serve and volley game! And this lady gave back to the game for years after she left it!
everyone should love each other, no more racism plz
