John Barrett

John Barrett
John Barrett has proved to be a worthy successor to the late, great Dan Maskell as the BBC's voice of tennis.

A former British No 5, he played in every Wimbledon Championships between 1950 and 1970, and represented Great Britain in the Davis Cup in 1956 and 1957.

A highly-respected tennis coach and administrator, John commentated on his first Wimbledon for BBC-tv in 1971, and has not missed a year since.

He has also worked for TV networks in Australia, Hong Kong, Canada and America, as tennis correspondent for the Financial Times, and is the author of many books on the game.
