Pat is a legend of Australian sport. The iconic images of him climbing the grandstand after winning Wimbledon have endured across time and created a ritual that is emulated to this day at that great event.

Biography

Pat Cash first came to the tennis world’s attention as a junior player in the early 1980s. He was awarded a scholarship at the Australian Institute of Sport and in 1982 he won the junior titles at both Wimbledon and the US Open.

In 1984, Cash reached the men’s singles semi-finals at both Wimbledon and the US Open. He lost in three sets in the Wimbledon semi-finals to John McEnroe and was defeated in the semi-finals at the US Open by Ivan Lendl. And in 1987 reached his first Grand Slam singles final at the Australian Open.

The crowning moment of Cash’s career came at Wimbledon in 1987 when he defeated the World Number 1, Ivan Lendl, in the final, dropping just one set during the entire tournament.

Pat Cash continued to play on the circuit on-and-off through the mid-1990s. A series of back to back injuries to his Achilles tendon, knees, and back prevented him from recapturing his best form after winning Wimbledon. He won his last top-level singles title in 1990 in Hong Kong and his last doubles title came in 1996 at Pinehurst with Pat Rafter.

Demonstrating his dedication to the sport, Pat has also won the over-45’s Wimbledon doubles title with fellow Aussie Mark Woodforde. Cash is a supporter for a number of charities including; GOAL (3rd world development and relief organisation), The Orchid Appeal (men’s cancer), and he founded Australia’s best known environmental charity Planet Ark with mate Jon Dee.
