Sue joined the BBC in 1993
Sue was formerly Britain's number one tennis player and climbed to number three in the world rankings.

She started her sports broadcasting career with Australia's Channel 7 in 1985.

She then joined BSB in 1990 and later moved on to Sky Sports.

She made her BBC debut in 1993, co-presenting the evening programme from Wimbledon on BBC One with Harry Carpenter.

She was such a success that she was soon presenting other major sports events such as the Winter Olympic Games in 1994, the Atlanta Olympics in 1996 and major tennis tournaments.

In 1994, Sue became the established host for Sunday Grandstand.

She has also worked on the BBC television documentary Chalk Flew Up, a history of Wimbledon's original Number One Court which made its final appearance during Wimbledon 1995.

Other credits include hosting Sports Review of the Year and A Question of Sport.

In 1998 she won the prestigious TRIC award for sports presenter/reporter of the year.
