In Detail

Sue won eleven WTA Tour singles titles and twelve doubles titles during her tennis career, ranking World No.3 in 1977 following her French Open victory in 1976. Upon retiring from tennis, she became a commentator and sports reporter for Australia's channel 7, before going on to anchor tennis coverage for British Sky Broadcasting. She then joined the BBC team to present their Wimbledon coverage and has anchored the two-week long broadcast ever since. In 2012, Sue provided live coverage of the London 2012 Olympic Games as the BBC's anchor in the prime-time early evening slot. Sue was awarded an OBE in 2016 for services to Broadcasting and Charity.
