Pat Cash
Pat Cash is a summariser for BBC TV
The winner of the Wimbledon Men's Singles title in 1987, Pat Cash is a popular and forthright summariser for BBC TV.

His famous climb through the seats on Centre Court to embrace his family after beating Ivan Lendl in straight sets remains one of the Championships' most enduring images.

Pat was born in Melbourne in May 1965 and was the best player in Australia by the time he was 14.

A hard-fighting serve and volleyer, he turned pro in 1982 and reached his highest ranking of world number four in 1988.

In 1984, he became the youngest player to compete in the Davis Cup Final, helping Australia to defeat Sweden 3-2.

Unfortunately, persistent serious injuries eventually brought his career to an end at the highest level.

He coached British player Greg Rusedski until 2000 for a brief spell and has also coached fellow Aussie Mark Philipoussis.

Pat regularly works as a TV commentator and presenter, as well as maintaining his business interests.

A father of four, his passion away from tennis and his family is playing the guitar.
