Jack Crawford

Hall of Fame

Inducted into the Australian Tennis Hall of Fame in May 1997; inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1979.

A stylish and sporting player, 'Gentleman Jack' Crawford came within one set of completing the first Grand Slam in 1933. He captured the Australian, French and Wimbledon titles, but fell in five sets in the United States final.

Apart from singles success, Crawford also captured six doubles titles and five mixed doubles titles. He won three straight Australian mixed titles with his wife, Marjorie Cox Crawford, between 1931 and 1933. Crawford was a proud Davis Cup representative and finished with a 36-21 win-loss record.
