Pat Cash

Pat Cash is one of an elite club to win Wimbledon at both the junior and senior level, but he’s perhaps as famous for what he did immediately after winning Wimbledon in 1987. After securing the championship against Ivan Lendl he broke with tradition and climbed into the stands to thank his family. It’s been repeated many times since. As well as Wimbledon, he secured the Davis Cup for Australia in 1983 and was twice a finalist at the Australian Open. As the presenter of CNN’s Open Court he regularly takes on the new generation – as well as often renewing rivalries with the players from his era.
