Pat Cash is the Australian known as much for his trademark black and white headband as his tough serve and volley game style.
After being ranked the number 1 junior in the World in the early 80’s Pat turned pro in 1982 and aged just 17 duly won his fist ATP title on home soil in Melbourne.
5 years later in the same city Pat was to make his first of 3 Grand Slam singles final, on the grass courts of Kooyong, only to be denied in a 5 set thriller by Stefan Edberg.
His hopes of a major triumph were only on hold though; with victory over the then world number 1 Ivan Lendl in the 1987 Wimbledon final. The celebration that followed starting the famous tradition of climbing into player’s box on Centre court.
He remains one of only 4 players to win both the Boys and Men’s Singles title at Wimbledon.
Currently a tennis analyst for major television networks and tennis coach to WTA and ATP players.
