Dubbed 'The Arm' by Billie Jean King, Court amassed a list of tournament wins that is yet to be rivalled. She is one of only three players to complete the 'boxed set' - by winning the singles, doubles and mixed titles at all four majors.

A superbly fit player known for her heavy ground strokes and powerful serve, Court collected 64 major titles in singles, doubles and mixed. Her closest rival is Martina Navratilova with 56.

In 1970, Margaret Court completed the Grand Slam, and is one of only three women to do so. She finished the year as No.1 three times, in 1969, 1970 and 1973. No other woman has dominated the Australian Open as much as Court, who owns the record for most Grand Slam singles titles with 24.
