Q. How many British male tennis players have made it to a Grand Slam final since Fred Perry won the USA Championship in 1936?


Bunny Austin 1937 (Fr), 1938 (Wimbledon)

John Lloyd 1977 (Oz)

Greg Rusedski 1997 (USA)

Andy Murray 2008 (USA), 2010 (Oz), 2011 (Oz), 2012 (Wimbledon) AND WINNER 2012 (USA) 

Q. Why wasn't Fred Perry knighted?
A. Because the All England Club wouldn't support his case because he turned professional.

Perry won 8 Majors plus 2 doubles wins and four mixed doubles wins

And pray, why wasn't Kitty Godfree made a Dame or for that matter a CBE?

Between 1920 and 1927, Godfree won two of her five singles finals and all three of her doubles and mixed doubles finals plus she won one gold, two silvers and two bronze medals in the Olympics.
