Dan Maskell ranked Doris Hart as Nr. 10 on his all time ranking list. She had a sound, very stylish game, despite a severe handicap. I think because of polio, one of her legs was shorter than the other and a bit stiff. Most people rank Brough highest because of her Wim wins. Du Pont was one of the best doubles player in history. I think, she won a major mixed with Fraser, as late as in the 60s. All had problems on and off the court with Connolly, who was taught by her mentor Teach Tennant, to hate all rivals.
