Ann Jones
BBC TV summariser Ann Jones (pictured, left, before her 1969 Wimbledon ladies singles final against Billie-Jean King) is one of Britain's most successful-ever tennis players.

Wimbledon ladies champion in 1969, and the beaten finalist in 1967, she was also a semi-finalist on a further six occasions, and a mixed doubles champion (with Fred Stolle) in 1969.

Birmingham-born Ann won the French Open in 1961 and 1966, reached the final in Paris a further three times, and was twice a finalist at the US Championships.

A table tennis international between 1953 and 1959, she began commentating for the BBC in 1970, and is also an experienced tennis administrator.
