Margaret Court Biography
Margaret Court was born July 16, 1942, and is a retired former World No. 1 tennis player from Australia. In 1970, she became the first woman during the open era to win all four Grand Slam singles titles in the same calendar year. Court won 24 Grand Slam singles titles, more than any other player. She won 62 Grand Slam titles overall (24 singles, 19 women's doubles, and 19 mixed doubles), again, more than any other player. Many consider her the greatest female tennis player. The International Tennis Hall of Fame states, For sheer strength of performance and accomplishment there has never been a tennis player to match (her).
Court is widely remembered for having lost a heavily publicized and U.S. televised challenge match to a former World No. 1 male tennis player, the 55-year-old Bobby Riggs, on Mother's Day, May 13, 1973, in Ramona, California. Court was the top-ranked women's player at the time, and it has been written that she did not take the match seriously, assuming that she would win without difficulty. Using a mixture of lobs and drop shots, however, Riggs beat her handily 62, 61.
Court is one of only three players to have achieved a career boxed set of Grand Slam titles, winning every possible Grand Slam title singles, same-sex doubles and mixed doubles at all four Grand Slam events. The others are Doris Hart and Martina Navrtilov. Court, however, is the only person to have won all 12 Grand Slam events at least twice. She also is unique in having completed a boxed set before the start of the open era in 1968 and a separate boxed set after the start of the open era.
