Aus­tralia’s Mar­garet Court ex­e­cutes a back­hand shot dur­ing a match against Chris Evert at the US Open Ten­nis Cham­pi­onship in 1973. Court, who lost to Evonne Goolagong Caw­ley in the 1971 Wim­ble­don fi­nal, still won a record 62 Grand Slam tour­na­ment ti­tles over the course of her ten­nis ca­reer. The Mar­garet Court Arena in Mel­bourne is named af­ter her. Court made head­lines ear­lier this year be­cause of her stance on same-sex mar­riage, when she said she would stop us­ing Qan­tas “where pos­si­ble” be­cause of the air­line’s sup­port of same-sex mar­riage.
