PARIS – When Ash Barty won the French Open title on Saturday she thought she was the first Australian woman to lift the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen since Margaret Court in 1973.
According to the trophy, though, there was also an Australian champion in 1976.
Clearly nobody has told Sue Barker, the Briton who triumphed in Paris 43 years ago.
Barker, now aged 63 and from Paignton in south-west England, is a sports presenter for the BBC.
Back in 1976 she was a rising star and recorded her best Grand Slam result by winning in Paris aged 20, beating Czech Renata Tomanova in the final.
