The former tennis star of the Australian Davis Cup and the two-time Wimbledon double champion, Peter McNamara, died of cancer at the age of 64.
Tweet by Rennae Stubbs: "Peter was a player, friend, countryman, gentleman, coach and much more."
McNamara, who reached number seven in his career in the world in 1983, beat the great names Jimmy Connors and Ivan Lendl to win two of his five single titles.
But perhaps he is best remembered for his successful partnership with Paul McNamee, the duo that twice won Wimbledon, in 1980 and 1982.
And there is something else.
