The BBC Team 

Sunday, 11 June, 2000, 17:42 GMT 18:42 UK
Annabel Croft
Annabel Croft made her debut as a Radio 5 Live summariser at Wimbledon last year, and returns to the team this summer.

After taking up tennis at the age of nine, Annabel became, at 15, the youngest Briton to play at Wimbledon for nearly 100 years.

She was a Wimbledon junior champion in 1984, and a year later picked up her first senior tournament title in San Diego.

Annabel retired from the international circuit at 21, having established herself as British No 1, ranked in the world's top 25.

She has since carved a career in the media, particularly on TV, and her work includes acting as a tennis presenter and summariser for Eurosport.

Annabel married former Americas Cup yachtsman Mel Coleman in 1993, and the couple have three children.
