Just recently I was looking through Althea Gibson's autobiography " I Always Wanted To Be Somebody." and in it she tells of how Sarah Palfrey was one of the players who not only campaigned to get the USLTA to let Althea play, but she also was the one who helped her get ready for the US Nationals by hitting with her. But alas, today most people can only remember the letter that Alice Marble wrote. Sarah's part seems to have been largely forgotten. It's a shame. It seems poor Sarah is often the forgotten one. From what I've read she was a top player and one great doubles player. I know she played a fantastic match in the 1946, US Nationals Singles. She beat defending champ Pauline Betz 3-6, 8-6, 6-4. She was ranked as high as #1 in 1945. It seems doubles was were she was really great. Teaming with Jacobs, Marble, Osborne, Budge, Kramer and Perry to win titles. But once again she's over shadowed in doubles by Osborne. I've noticed that when many posters discuss the 30s and 40s her name seldom comes up. Any thoughts on this wonderful player from the past ?
