Inducted into the Australian Tennis Hall of Fame in January 2003.
Cash's greatest on-court achievement was winning the men's singles title at Wimbledon in 1987. After claiming the title he climbed into the stands to celebrate with his family and coach. This practice has now almost become de rigueur among Wimbledon winners.
Cash made the final of the Australian Open twice - 1987 and 1988 - but lost to Stefan Edberg and Mats Wilander respectively. The Australian was a renowned serve-and-volleyer whose game flourished on grass. He was a regular Davis Cup representative for Australia and was a part of Australia's winning teams in 1983 and 1986. He finished with a 31-10 Davis Cup record over eight years.
