Have just seen this sad news.

South America's most successful female tennis player, Maria Bueno of Brazil, has died at the age of 78.

She was a delight to watch.

Honoured to say that I saw her (on TV of course) win Wimbers, back in the early 60's.

I hadn't heard that sad news. She was a delight to watch and I too used to see her matches on TV in her playing days.
